Shari Ellin Redstone (born April 14, 1954) is president of National Amusements, vice-chairman of CBS Corporation and Viacom, and on December 21, 2007 became chairman of Midway Games (a position she subsequently relinquished in December 2008 when her father Sumner Redstone sold all his stock in the company). Through National Amusements, Shari Redstone and her family are majority owners of CBS Corporation, Viacom, et al.

She is the daughter of Sumner Redstone and Phyllis Gloria Raphael, sister of Brent Redstone, granddaughter of Michael Redstone (who changed his name from Michael Rothstein), and a 1975 Bachelor of Science graduate of Tufts University. She also received her law degrees at The Boston University School of Law in 1978 (LLB) and in 1980 (LLM). She has three children with her former husband, Grand Rabbi Yitzhak Aharon Korff. The marriage ended in divorce.

Mrs. Redstone and her father have feuded publicly over issues of corporate governance and the future of the cinema chain[1][2]. Documents have been made public which verify that, as part of a settlement from Sumner's first divorce, all of Sumner's stock is in irrevocable trusts that will be left to his grandchildren [3]. The trusts are said to make it clear that Shari Redstone, Vice-Chairwoman of the Board of Viacom and CBS, is to assume her father's role upon his death.
