As of this writing, no word has been disclosed as to how much the the acquisition for Giant Bomb was worth, but what we do know is that CBS is also home of Gamespot (insert ominous sound here).

Meanwhile, Alex Navarro of Gamespot fame turned Harmonix PR turned Giantbomb contributor and Whiskey Media affiliate will also be leaving Screened.com to join Giant Bomb over at CBS. More news of the acquisition is detailed in full from Jeff Gertsmann and company in their live stream that happened not that long ago.
More details as they unfold.
