Redstone says he will not renew Karmazin's contract when it expires in 2003.

In announcing that he would let Mr. Karmazin go, Mr. Redstone did not criticize Mr. Karmazin's corporate strategy or decisions but said that Mr. Karmazin's hard-charging management style did not mesh with Viacom's corporate culture
