The Westinghouse Electric Corporation was founded on January 8, 1886 by George Westinghouse in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Its industry was broadcasting electric products and appliances and its headquarters remained in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  

The appliance unit was sold to White Consolidated Industries in 1974 and reorganized as White-Westinghouse. After acquiring CBS, Inc. in 1996, the company sold off its non-broadcast operations in 1997 and was renamed CBS Corporation. Its nuclear power business was spun off as the Westinghouse Electric Company in 1998. That year, CBS created the Westinghouse Licensing Corporation to manage the "Westinghouse" brand. It was acquired by Viacom, Inc. in 1999.
