Kinda game playing it with kids last night. You know what would happen if you could go. And how many rides could you possibly get on? If they actually limited the number of people they were letting were maybe it'd become more attractive so it'd be very interesting.

Is Bob Iger back as Disney CEO? He abruptly resigned from the helm in February
"I'm Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown. Joining me is Matt Felony and Matt. We've talked about Disney a lot lately because Disney is one of the most all companies are exposed to this this disaster from this pandemic and the apparent absence or inability of our leadership to the White House to figure out how to address it but Disney is as we've talked about hotels theme Parks Bob. Iger resigned abruptly. It seemed to many people including me as CEO staying on his executive chairman in February And you know this is just the strangest thing because there was just a an article that Ben Smith at the New York Times wrote in which he says that Bob Iger has now having said that he was handing the reins to Bob Capex the head of the theme parks making him. Ceo THAT BOB. Eiger has now basically resumed running Disney are. I don't know about you. I haven't seen any announcement of that or any kind of indication that there's been a change in leadership it seems important to me. It's a huge public company and a very difficult moment and and yet you know in the same column He. This author. Ben Smith says Bob Eiger has took his eye off the ball and was more worried about his legacy. But now he's back sort of like Hallelujah. I sort of feel like what really happened here because this narrative is making no sense to me and there's a lot of why whether Bob really planned that resignation as CEO and then came back. I'm there's nothing in this world that will make me believe that was planned. Yeah it's interesting because Disney clearly not clearly but some might say. Disney was responding to that article when they put out a release a few days. Later saying that Bob Shape back the other Bob Who was elevated to the CEO position in February is joining the board of directors? Which many had said was planned all along but I think the indication there was. You know the new Bob is actually in charge. It's not the old Bob. Even though the whole Bob seems to be you know giving his strong advice and being involved in these major decisions literally saying like I'm back he's like a signaling in an email or something to this journalist that he's back and I'm like what but go on. That's the question you do have someone who has decades of experience at the Walt Disney Company there in that executive chairman position and probably feels a little bit of remorse that he left this job right as the proverbial s hit the fan and a lot of people speculated. That either did know what was coming when he did that. You know at the time. He stepped down. The Shanghai Disney park had already closed due to the virus and many experts. Were saying. Listen this is a couple of weeks away from being a global pandemic. Even if the American government wasn't saying so at the time the experts were and had that information many thought that that timing was abrupt and out of nowhere and then all of a sudden were in the middle of the biggest threat to The Walt Disney Company. In perhaps ever so. I think there's probably a little bit of remorse going on there and I think there's probably a little bit of Bringing the guy with the expertise to actually manage this very very difficult time. How about giving some clarity at? I wonder if the board didn't say excuse me. What did you just do? And how is this Bob? Shaping supposed to run the theme parks because as far as I know still no successor named for that. I mean they're closed but that's not like that doesn't mean there's no duties associated with that you know how. How is this guy now running the whole whole company? I you know I'm old enough to remember. When Michael Eisner having had a very supine board for a very long time finally had gotten enough people upset that the board turned around and ultimately dismissed him. So it's not that the board cannot be awakened in in a situation like this. I just find this to be an incoherent narrative and I've never seen such credulous analysis. I guess people who who who in the observer the media world and had had mickey mouse sheets on their bed when they were growing up or something. Because I don't think any other company would be getting the benefit of the doubt that Disney has gotten. Yeah I guess we'll see as this pandemic causes more injury to the company. How big a role. Eiger will ultimately play. That's delanie former editorial director of the Hollywood reporter. He joins me this Monday at one. Thirty on the

"To cash break-even pretty quickly like you said you do have an ad component of this business. There's an ad version of it You guys at announce you sold out your inventory. Initially but you also know that the ad business is really tumbling along with the rest of the economy. We don't know winds lash. How it's going to recover. Do you imagine that you're GONNA have to go back and say look? We need to plan for a future where our AD business is significantly smaller than we thought and that may affect staffing. We may have to cut back soon. We've raised all this money. Listen the world is a changed world today from where it was three months ago one month ago one week ago and we don't have a better cristobal than anybody else other than knowing the world is still going to go through. Continue to go through changes that even today are unimaginable to us. We cannot be predictive of that and so all we can say is. We've sold one hundred percent of our ad-advantageous Corey for the next twelve months till April of next year. It sold out. We have some of the best companies in the best brands. These are the you know. Solid solid solid companies. That I am every one of which will be in business as much or more so a year from now that they are they are today and they are consumer facing companies. That are you know in the business of wanting to reach an audience. There are going to be changes. Fortunately we have now not financing that we are in a position that we will be able to make the adjustments and the changes that we need to make an order for this to be a profitable successful business and be able to take on the unknowns that we don't know when ask you a few more questions than a couple just general entertainment questions. I know you have worked in the Internet before I remember you working on pop dot com. Obviously you've done all sorts of stuff on the Internet. I'm assuming though this is the most sort of immersed you've been in this medium and the idea that you're going to get this immediate detailed granular feedback that you could never have gotten when you're making movies or television shows. A lot of people are grappling with sort of what that means for the creative process. Do you like that or would you rather have some mystery and and not get that instantaneous feedback or do you welcome it? I love it I love it. I can't wait for it but even even as a studio executive as a movie maker as a storyteller I've loved that feedback and even as old school as it was two years ago. Take a movie go into a movie theater sitting back and see how three or four hundred people react to a work in progress to be able to to actually see your work through. The eyes of your customers is a fantastic thing. And I've always loved that I loved that process and embrace that process and to me. This is just that times a thousand right and it's incredibly granular and you actually can see it in real time. I not only do I welcome it. I actually can't wait for for it and in the end it's an aide to judgement. I can't tell you what to do. But it sure can send you powerful powerful signals and And I'm looking forward to them. Do you magic a workflow where you know a lot? Obviously you've shot all this stuff you've made it but you imagine a workflow where you go Hey TURNS OUT. People are enjoying this kind of thing specifically and we should alter what we were planning on making to accommodate that either shortening the show or whatever whatever it is we see audience responding to exer- why let's change it and as close to real time as possible. Are these going to be sort of things that you make and you send out and you see how they work. And then you retool the next ship what we are so we have a very. I mean the beauty or the duty. The fortunate thing for Quimby is is that right now today for a whole bunch of reasons. We have a very very very big inventory of content. In fact we have enough content to deliver on the cadence of publishing that we have set out for ourselves. All the way up to the November December almost Thanksgiving Yup right so there will we actually have just a very rich now pipeline of content. We've also over developed for what you're talking about which is second cycle and what. I think is what I think we will learn here. Are Two people like movies and chapters? Do they like the unscripted? Do they like more comedy than do they drama do they WANNA be? They like it when they get scary stuff on this I. We've we have such a wide offering that we're doing at this point. I can't I love everything and so to get that feedback and to actually pivot into the things that are most rewarding to the audience. The things that they are consuming with the most enthusiasm you know is fantastic. I think that is you know a unique thing about streaming platform and why I think we will be able to be so successful. So quickly has a very very broad offering. Netflix sort of started narrowly when they started doing original content. And now they've gone very broad. Do you imagine that at some point you go? We tried every possible genre. Our audience is really responding to these three or four things comedy sports. Whatever it is going to become the short form comedy or short form sports or whatever it is that is most resonant and that becomes your identity and the thing you focus the most on and you're no longer has brought a service as long as that's a successful profitable enterprise and it fine you know. I have to tell you and we've talked a little bit about this but I actually think the thing that may be among the most surprising and valuable things that we are about to do for our customers is the daily essentials the fact that we have taken across a very broad swath of of verticals movies. Television Sports News Music Gaming Gaza. Entertainment News like literally. There's eighteen shows that are combination of informing entertaining and inspiring that. We have six talkshows literally. We've six talk shows and you know until you get to see those. There's a whole volume of things that nobody is actually. You'll only get to see these things starting on Monday when they go live. We've been actually seeing them all week in advance. So I'm sorry I now remember the show is you've seen them now for a couple days and my bet is is that very specifically for you. There are three or four of those daily essentials. That are gonNA give you an a quality way information about a topic that matters a lot to you in such a. Saint beautifully. Curated way that you're going to say will. That's that's invaluable for me and you'RE GONNA get up every day and that's where I'm actually going to get my sports news produced by ESPN. Or that's where I'm going to get my music news or that's where I'm going to get my entertainment news over the last few years men generally men who've been running the biggest media companies in the world have been either retiring selling their companies to someone else. you're kind of in that generation? You are in that generation. Is this your last runner? Is there another project after this? Well if this is what I hope. And Imagine and light candles and cross my fingers for this'll be fulfilling me for a decade or two and speaking of succession. I gotta ask you what you make of. What's been going on at Disney? Where he had. Bob Eiger is announcing what seemed to be an abrupt departure. But he's actually sticking around for a while you of course a long history at Disney. What do you? What do you make of what happened there? And what is happening there? Well you know Listen there Bob. Iger is in the hall of fame of you know. Maybe a a handful of the greatest. Eeo's of our time And has done just a extraordinary job building and running and managing and creatively leading that company. That's a hard job on a good day. That's a hard job. And you know I think he's been signaling insane to all of us for a couple years you know I. I'm just I'm getting to the end of this. You know he picked and Bob Shape. Pick an outstanding executive who's been running two thirds of the Of that company quietly you know the theme park business and Consumer Products Business and Bob Actually overlapped with me. That's how far back we go. The last two years I was at the Disney Company and so that was back in the Jurassic era. He was young up and coming executive then in the home video business and was a star then and has gone on to really do a remarkable job theme park business cruise ship business consumer products business. He's running all of those exceptionally well. He's different Foam Bob no matter what whoever came next was going to be different from. Bob Is probably the best management team in the entertainment and media business today. Everybody seems to have settled in there. And you know obviously huge headwinds in the face of corporate nineteen but You know as experienced knowledgeable group of people to figure out how they're going to sail through this storm in it so I cannot say that I personally was hugely surprised that he did it. I was surprised the immediacy the timing of it right like everybody else but not that he did do it. Because you've been saying that he's going to do it for a long time. Yeah I think a bunch of us were skeptical that he was ever. GonNa wave their because he kept saying he was gonNA leave and didn't but we'll we'll bring it back to you. Listen you can ask anyone. Who's talked to me been rooting for you? Because I've always said it's a much better story if you succeed. There's a lot of doubt about what you're doing and it's a much better story for me to write about for me to cover if you were successful and now given where we're at. I would very much like a positive story. Thank you and I wish you. Well I appreciate that and listen. You know skepticism when you're doing something that's new never been done before that actually. Has You know unique and original equal risky and risky by definition. Means you know there can be failure right so I I know I don't. I've never been A. I resent people skepticism in it. I understand it. I recognize it as long as it doesn't as long as it doesn't get in the way of our ability to have our best shot because in the end either we delivered and it works and it's going to be a great success or you know or we missed the mark and I. I think we've hit it and I'm excited about it and I understand. It was risky from day. One because it's not been done before and your skept as always come thoughtfully so. Thank you for your skepticism. I am rooting so hard to prove your skepticism wrong. That's a polite way to put it. I wish you luck. Thank you for your time. I know it's a busy time backs.

Amid Coronavirus, Hollywood Takes a Hit
"I'm Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as Matt Bellamy of the Hollywood reporter and Matt. There's a lot of anxiety. A lot of fear about the corona virus and people are being instructed as to what is best to do right now but obviously this is very contagious and while many businesses and the stock market overall are being very impacted clearly. Hollywood the entertainment business is is extremely vulnerable in this situation We've seen predictions that what has already happened. could cost the industry five billion dollars from diminished box. Office Revenue Alone I think that that almost as fanciful thing to say because this is a moving target every day every time you refresh your favorite news site hopefully reliable one. You See Different News and you know we've seen the Disney close temporarily a three theme parks overseas in Asia We've seen you know the bond movie now being moved off of its date in April. That is a movie of great importance to MGM which made it and is as releasing it in the US That company doesn't have other stuff that is critical to to its well-being it's bond and they've moved it now so far nobody else in the movie. Businesses followed suit but it just feels like things are moving in a direction. This completely unpredictable. And everybody's trying to figure out what to do. Yeah I mean I think this weekend will be a key indicator in the US. At least because if you look at what happened in South Korea last weekend box office revenue. There was down eighty percent year over year. And this weekend you have a big pixar movie onward from Disney. That is opening and the projections are that it's gonNA open pretty strong but those projections don't account for the fear anxiety that's out there and are people going to take their children to a movie theater. I don't know no one knows. Yeah let's look at Disney They would seem to me to be facing a lot of difficult questions I mean. They have hotels theme parks. Cruise ships end movie theaters. All of those are question marks right now in the. Us You have spring breaks coming up. You have Easter vacation coming up. I can't imagine what actually what the CON. What the consultations within Disney are like as to win the risks tip into a place where they think they should close these parks here in the US. Which would have a huge impact on their business. Of course or you know. What is the responsible move? Do they panic people? If they say we're now going to close these parks or is it the right. Move to say abundance of caution. Let's close the part. Yeah Disney is caught in a really difficult situation here and it's the first difficult situation for the new CEO. Bob Shape Pack. He's got this to deal with. And I've talked to people at Disney and they really feel that the power of the Disney brand and what they choose to do in. This situation is going to send a message worldwide. They closed the parks in the US that says to everybody that pays attention to Disney which is basically everybody that this is a huge problem and you need to be really afraid. I think the Disney is very sensitive to doing that so far. They haven't moved any of their movies. They have not closed the. Us Parks they seem to be adhering to what the CDC is saying. Which is that. They're not recommending that schools or big public gathering places close but a lot of entertainment industry organizations like everything from Warner media to net flix. They are preventing unnecessary travel. They're pulling out of film festivals and things like South by South West and I think that is the next step. We're going to the parks universal and Disney start to close. Obviously the important thing is to be common rational and hope for the best. Thank you
Disney CEO Bob Iger Steps Down Abruptly
"From wondering. I'm David Brown. And this is business wars daily on this Monday march second big news last Tuesday Disney CEO. Bob Eiger stepped down from his post effective immediately. Yeah it had been rumored for years that the longtime well respected executive would retire sometime. But the announcement suddenness reportedly surprised employees and industry executives according to CNN. Especially since Agar's employment contract is up until the end of twenty twenty one it also shocked investors the announcement on a random Tuesday. One analyst said was stunning. The share price sank on the news even more sharply than the rest of the market which was already in freefall because of Corona virus fears items replacement BOB SHAPE ICK Twenty-seven Year Disney veteran. Who since two thousand fifteen has run? Disney parks and resorts division. He'll have Gargantuan shoes to fill. Bob Iger is known as a fearless risk taker. A guy who believes in the motto in by. He's been at Disney for forty five years. He took the reins for Michael Eisner. Fifteen years back then. Disney was turning a profit of two and a half billion dollars a year according to CNBC. Today it's more than ten billion not surprisingly share prices followed growing four hundred percent over Eiger fifteen years managing the house of mouse that soaring profitability is typically credited do bonus as chief executive. He made enormous bets. Acquiring Lucasfilm Pixar Marvel and last year completing a seventy billion dollar acquisition of Twentieth Century Fox. The result Disney films dominated the box office last year. Grossing more than ten billion dollars according to CNBC if that wasn't enough eiger led Disney into streaming TV sinking billions and creating Disney plus the twentieth century. Fox purchase helped fuel Disney plus by giving it a huge catalog of content. So too did I moved to take back. Disney shows that it had formerly licensed Netflix. Now it's fierce rival. The strategy seems to be working. Disney plus launched only three months ago in November. The company says it now has nearly thirty million subscribers. I group is also known as charismatic. Outgoing executive who loves to HOBNOB The Wall Street Journal says not so much. Pick who the New York Times describes as blunt businesslike and devoted to making his numbers but also quote in love with all things Disney. He has even been known to chat with the Disney characters as he walks through the resorts on Capex Watch Parkson Resort. Prophets grew every year for five years in a row mostly at double digits. According to the journal the newspaper credits the growth expansion of the parks shape lead. Disney's new star wars attractions and the five billion dollars. Shanghai Disney resort but also to what the Journal calls strategic cost cutting parks visitors. Were flat last year. But revenue and profits increased as shaping high ticket prices. During high traffic days. Bloomberg reported following the announcement. Social media was a buzz not just with questions about the abrupt news but also with complaints about unaffordable ticket. Prices Bob I toll. Cnbc and others that his plans to step down were widely known within Disney halls. Just not publicly his reasoning. He said he will become Executive Chairman for the twenty two months left in his employment contract and he plans to devote his time to bolstering Disney's creative content before he leaves the company.

"Same store sales up three point. Two percent. This is their twelfth straight quarter of comparable sales growth. Who would have thunk back in the day? Investments to beef up their e commerce business have paid off online revenue up nineteen percent gross margins narrowed a bit just because the product mix by the justice earnings up seven percent. Almost they did mention the corona virus on the call. They think it'll be mostly a first half of the impact. How they know that I don't know but they're looking at it. As a relatively short term disruption that does not impact their long term strategy and initiatives. But of course there are some supply chain related issues that they called out. They took that into account. When giving guidance as a result guidance was relatively weak compared to what investors were expecting but the stocks only twelve times earnings and they continue to put up. Good good numbers. It's pretty impressive that they've had comp growth for three years in a row when you consider ten years ago. I don't WanNa say the best buy was at death's door. But it was the quintessential big box. Retailer the jokes about it being Amazon showroom and the way that they retooled that business is really impressive. I'm as guilty as the next guy about thinking they were. They were dead in the water. And it's very impressive. How they turned it The service aspect of their business was a big big push and is paid off for sure. Fourth quarter profits for booking holdings came in higher than expected but shares down more than twelve percent this week because Andy booking holdings is price line it is booking dot com. It is in the travel business. Yeah twenty percent of their Who the room nights booked are over in Asia so obviously a lot of conversation in the guidance they put forward for the first quarter not so good but the the results for the fourth quarter were pretty impressive dollar bookings up six percent room nights booked up twelve percent revenues up about four percent advertising sales up three percent so nice little advertising business kind of working through the spending less on Brandon advertising. They are continuing to invest in technology as a TECH COMPANY IN TECH PLATFORM PEOPLE EXPENSES UP sixteen percent. It spending in general more than forty percent so making the investments. But Chris as you mentioned the the concerns about the Krona Virus. Really kind of overshadowing very nice quarter the guidance for the first quarter and of course it. They said they don't know for sure. But the guidance fourth quarter is ruined. Night's books is going to be somewhere down five percent down ten percent and the revenues down somewhere between five and ten percent as well too so I was gonna hit on the earnings per share line which is expected to drop somewhere around fifteen percent and of course investors got nervous about then sold the stock off. See this takes me back to the you made Jason about looking at a company in a time. Like this and saying simply. Is this a good business? And Booking Holdings unlike and not to pick on them but unlike the cruise lines I look at butchering holdings and think. Well there's this talk I don't own and yes it's in the travel business but I'm going to put that on my watch list because at the end of the day it's a good business. Yeah I mean I. It is a simple question but it can be very very helpful in just trying to make those simple assessments in what you want your portfolio to look like going forward big. Ceo move this week. Bob Iger step down effective immediately. As the CEO of Disney. He's staying on as executive chairman. Bob Shape becomes the seventh. Ceo in Disney history. Jason I say this as Disney shareholder who is disgusting. I mean I think that's a fair question. I mean this was a Probably a bit of a shocking headline at first for a lot of us but once we got a little bit more clarity as to what Bob idea really wants to do. It's not I don't think it's that big of a deal. The question to your point is is Mr J. Pick the right person for the job and other some questions in regard to his background with parks In in experiences maybe most in the financial media is more of a streaming company and therefore the you know a streaming experts should be leading the way. Let's not forget. The parks and experience is really still are the bread and butter of this company even even though we know the future is going to streaming in over the top entertainment going to play a big role. I listen I think shape is a fine choice. Most of that comes from the fact that he has the blessing of bomb anger. And I don't WanNa put Bob Eiger on a pedestal. No one's perfect but he certainly did one heck of job during his tenure there with Disney. And it's worth noting that he's going to spend the last year and a half of his time through two thousand twenty one working on the creative side and really helping address. I think one of the biggest challenges this company has in the near term and that is building out a content library for Disney plus because as cool as it is a lot of that content is pretty old and so they're gonNA have to start getting some new content in there to keep viewers interested in coming back for more. I like knowing that I was going to be running. That and I think having resources going to serve Mr Shaping very well over the course of the next Jersey get settled in his role he agreed with with Agar as executive chairman in charge of creative direction. I feel like shape because more of a seat. Oh Oh at this point at least for the next year and a half and he appears to be kind of this no nonsense nuts and bolts numbers guy which is kind of what you wanted to see often now a year and a half from now when he takes over more creative control and more of the future control of this company. I might get a little nervous then when when I actually Leave yeah that that. That's certainly a fair point. Something worth keeping in mind. I mean I think a good analogy here is is the Kevin Johnson Howard Schultz dynamic at starbucks. I mean it's it's working out so far but it's certainly worth noting that Mr Johnson had a lot of time to learn from our Schultz along the way and I think that plays out on their business Well also interesting on how the partnerships work we saw over at salesforce. The co-ceo situation changed a little bit and the the Co step down. Step two ways. Benny off his back in running as a CEO solely it is interesting to the hand the hand off as they think about these businesses are so complex. There's so much now goes into these running these massive organizations that having someone in distributed capacity that can really work well together could actually be. Maybe little bit more of the future. Although it's really hard I think to get right unlike Jason. I don't WanNa put Bob Eiger on a pedestal. I do think we should take thirty seconds. And give him his due. Bob Shaping has a tough act to follow. Even if you only look at Disney through the Lens of acquisitions and the way Eiger was able to buy Pixar and Lucasfilm and marvel entertainment and what that did to open up every other part of Disney's business. Yeah I mean I think it's also important to think about going forward is is Mister Chepe. Ix view going to line up with what? Mr Agar's view has been regarded the company and all the interviews. I've seen With the two since this was announced it really does look like Mr Chepe is looking to just keep the ball rolling on the foundation that Bob Migra built in. Listen it seems to have worked thus far. I like that like that. The philosophy leads so I I expect good things shares of shake shack down around twenty percent. This week Four hundred prophets. Look Good Ron. But same store. Sales were down three and a half percent and overall sales are they're still growing. But that growth is slowing. Yep Not a great quarter and guidance was weak. As well companies saw growth in delivery slowing Amid a shift to a soul partnership with grub hub which is relatively unique For these restaurants to go with one delivery partner As you mentioned same store sales down about three point six percent that include one point eight percent increase in ticket prices but offset by a five point four percent decline in traffic. I'm no restaurant to her. But I don't think you want declines in traffic Operating expenses were up margins narrowed company generated. They loss of two point. One million dollar for the fourth quarter. In their guidance they also talked about chronic virus. They do have some international locations about ninety five out of their two hundred. Eighty are located Internationally they do have some in China as well. We'll see what impact that has run your New Yorker right. Yeah okay so we were talking about this earlier this week. Chris in Iowa on foolery and I can't help but wonder if shake shack doesn't have that bojangles dynamic in where it's a good good concept. Good food good good ran and everything but given they're given their regional popularity and given its burger joint at the end of the day. I wonder maybe they just have trouble leaping out of their geographic footprint. Maybe it's not not something that translate so well nationwide right. I mean I don't see then ever getting to a chipotle twenty five hundred stores you know. I don't I haven't even heard them say that. That's their goal. I mean you are right. It's a burger and shake shop at the end of the day which I think does transfer through to most parts of this country. Interestingly they they rolled out a chicken nugget line This this year which would throws a bit of a misstep and they spent a lot of time focusing on the assemble a bit of stumble and that's That kind of impacted results as well. So they probably should just stick to their knitting. I was just GonNa say at least the one thing you can say about shake shack. Is they stick to their knitting. They're just burgers and shakes. I wasn't even aware that they were attempting chicken up next. We've got a few stocks on our radar. So stay right here. You're listening to Motley fool. Money.

"It is going to be an interesting ride nonetheless and for the folks that are following Disney closely like Bob Shape Pec. You've not been given the greatest in the world. And again he still has to deal with the fallout of Twenty First Century Fox and that merger. And everybody's talking about how the five major purchases that Disney made over the course of the last decade or so starting with the Pixar by and all that that this could be by far and away the worst value of them. So how do you gain profitability for that purchase? What steps do you need to take? I mean these are a lot of questions that Bob shape has to deal with. I hope he's the man for the job. I wish him all the best and like I was saying earlier. The challenge is out there for him. Indeed so not everything on the surface is is How should I say golden for Disney right now but definitely is something to look at but there is a lot on the table on the plus side? But there's also some questions coming up on the road for Disney at Bob Chip Beck. What are your thoughts out there? A Bob Iger stepping down a CEO for Disney. And a new Bob Bob.

Don't touch that dial we do. People still use dials for the latest news and Information Analysis and opinions on the Los Angeles Lakers and the NBA. Check off the Lakers fast-break podcast today. On wherever you get your podcasts. My friend a lot to talk about again still. Today's show speaking of Disney. Because again this is something that I don't want to say the pop culture world revolves around dizzy. Darn close sometimes and a lot more was done this week with Star Wars just as the rise of skywalker is now fading into the Sunset. And we're getting the final returns on his now digital and going to video and all that stuff. And the whole skywalker. Saga is fading into the distance into the rear view mirror. We now get word with a trailer and more information on upcoming projects for books TV series possibly even movies when it concerns Star Wars Republic which I believe takes place two hundred years before the events of the phantom menace. If I if I remember correctly so I ask you my friend. You took a look at the trailer about Star Wars Republic and all that and I ask you this right now. Is this something that you think could be a direction that they're going to take for a lot of the things that are going to go on in the Star Wars Universe going forward for a while or do you think that's going to go into a completely different direction. So judging from what I've researched about and I probably haven't read into it as much as you have. But they had said that this is going to be an era of novels and comic books and possibly some video games but not films in. I'm fine if it stays within that medium of storytelling. But if they're going to do films in the High High Republic Era I'm it'll it'll appeal to a certain group of people and yeah. I'll probably go watch them but I don't think that's going to do much for them. In terms of garnering New Star Wars fans getting a new generation. You know this is what we always talk about right after. Rizal skywalk or rise skywalker. What happens next? How a star wars going to survive the next twenty years right and it's not going to do it by appealing to fans who are in it for the nostalgia. If that makes sense I I think that if they want to do something successful they're going to have to move the story line forward give us new heroes. Give us a new era. I don't think the high republic is the best place to do something like that because it's tied too closely to the Djeddai in to the pre empire stuff and it just it feels more like a prequel to the prequels. Absolutely I agree with you on that. I am more of a forward thinking person I just like to look at. What's coming up ahead or what can be created out of the blue ahead and the universe is that you can great from it now mind you. It's not one hundred percent definite what we could be seeing in two years with the New Star Wars movie or what comes after that in two years after that or two years after that. They've said at this point in time that they're probably not going to have a trilogy unless whatever comes out becomes really successful. I'm just concerned that they want to go ahead. And just draw upon the same old stuff from the skywalker saga that they said they were going to be finished with. Which in essence. They're not by going to the Star Wars the high republic because it all draws into it if you put iota in there which if you saw the trailer he's in some of the I guess the art before the actual production takes place. You saw him there as two hundred years younger so he is a part of it. And that's something that ties into very heavily so it's like you're not escaping skywalker. Saga. I'm looking for something new. I'm looking for something advanced. I'm looking for something in the windshield of life as we were talking about on the last episode with the guys from the voice from the underground. I'm looking for something in the windshield. And what's coming up on the road ahead of me as post what's coming up in the past and although it's nice to go ahead and touch on some of this republic like for instance went by aware did the old republic and there's been talk about an old republic movie and that's Nice one authored whatnot but still. I think that they're announcing their intentions. On focusing quite a bit of the material coming up in the future within that realm two hundred years before. The Phantom menace. I'm not sure that's a great decision because it tells me that. They're still so dependent on that skywalker. Saga is just like they can't escape it and try something different new. Here's where I think Disney is right. Now they're trying to figure out how to market things right. They WANNA market to the crowd that they know they're going to get the guarantee the guarantee Merchandise sales right of the fathers who are going by these figures for their sons and daughters and tell them stories about it. Oh like Yoda. Let me tell you about iota. You know Yoda's on Dagoba. And he trained. Luke scoured the those types of stories. They're too afraid to to take a risk on something new and that's that's actually the overall problem with Disney general. Right we're looking at marvel properties stars properties Disney movies. Everything's a retelling of a retelling a sequel to a sequel and You know and this is showing up now in their marketing. Strategies is the fact that they're not willing to let go of the past and try something new and that's why we liked so much the idea that even though it's up in questions far from financial standpoint but when it comes to marvel they had the cachet right now do some things that are new as we talked about with shank she and these are new things new properties that we haven't seen before for the most part for a lot of us out there is general consumer so that could be something that is a reach and is something new but how they package it. Hopefully it's not too familiar but again like I was talking about something new and unexpected that we could really get into right and I don't think that's what this is going to be because to me the high republic era. It's like Los Angeles right. I think it's a cool idea and I. It's fun to to dive in there for a little bit. But it's not something I want to go back to over and over again. It doesn't feel fresh. Feels like it's crowding and already crowded universe and I think they need to jump a couple of hundred years into the future and just below show. Us something new. Show something that we haven't seen before something that doesn't tie into the skywalker saga in any shape or form another hard the Star Wars universe. Let Yo to go yet. Let the LEGIT. I era go. Let create some. I mean you can keep the jet. That's a staple star wars but don't don't make it take place within the confines of some of already established lower. I agree with you should be something that take a bold new step. Take a bold new step into a different way of doing things because it's clear after the results of what happened in the declining numbers that the movies had over the course of the past five years or so since twenty fifteen since star wars. The Force Awakens. The numbers have declined. It's right there. Fans interest is less when it comes to star wars. I we talked about it before when it was you and I were talking about the generation after you Josh. When we talked about ten fifteen twenty years down the line we'll star wars retain its cultural footprint with individuals that are ten fifteen years younger or more younger with you. I'm not convinced it will. Because Disney of Star Wars has not taken the right steps to go ahead and recapture that magic. And I don't think going back two hundred years in time and focusing the entire universe on that era is the right answer again. I think should be just a clean slate of go from there. You've got some very talented individuals and writers and creators. We talked about Kevin Feige. And tyco not you know they both been attached to possible star wars projects. Something that you've got some of the most entertaining and intelligent minds in the industry. That could be focused on it. I mean the man delorean has been such a great success because it seems just seems outside of what goes on Skywalker Saga even though it is in a way still tied to it. It just seems different. It seems a little fresh. And that's why I think a lot of people have attached itself to it but again if you could go even further and take bolder steps. I think you might like the results that for the most part of it's done well that you get out of it. As opposed to going so far in the past with the high republic and not to mention to that every time they take a step with star wars. And it doesn't pay off. It has de-legitimize the franchise right is made people angry. May PEOPLE NOT WANNA go back and and keep revisiting this world like they don't have the goodwill of this is sad to say they don't have the goodwill of the people anymore right they don't have the goodwill of the the hardcore fans are going to be more skeptical about like. I knew friends I have. I have friends who love Star Wars and after you know the last Jedi. They don't even care to watch it. Didn't even WANNA see Risa skyrocketing when you want to see how that resolved itself and every time Disney takes a step like that a step in the wrong direction they de-legitimize it so when they finally do get stars headed in the right direction. People aren't gonNA care anymore. No they're not and that's going to be very disappointing that there will be less people like me wearing. Star Wars T. shirts and things of that nature having anything in their room or the artifacts or buying anything and I know that will be bad for Disney but it also be bad for pop culture as a whole because as you and I know as you and I when we started this show. We realized very quickly the pot culture itself started really emanating from nineteen seventy seven when star wars was released. I mean it created that Geek culture at created that pop culture that made things like star wars cool to a larger audience and then outside of just certain individuals that was specifically loved it made pop culture and everything associated with it acceptable to a larger audience. And we to me. If I could point to a real milestone in pop culture I would say is star wars and to not have star wars as a major staple of the pop culture experienced would be very disappointing. And there's a very real possibility if Disney doesn't go about it well than intend to fifteen years we could say it is something start. Meaning The star wars property. In the star wars franchise be something that is in the past and not really a major part of our president when it comes to pop culture. Yeah I agree I agree and I it would be a shame to especially with all the money that Disney's dumping into it and you know you see more and more lately. George Lucas expressing disdain. At towards himself for having sold the property and viewer. Do if your finding the creator of a.

What up just doing some late night. Pop Culture Talk Catching up on things that I have been slow on this week so No this POK POK. Mon countdown is a very interesting to me. It is and we'll close out the show with that coming up on the back camera but we'll also be talking about something going on with the new xbox series exits on the way and the reason why we mentioned tear flop is because they announced specs recently. And we'll go ahead and we'll talk about that real quick later on in the show as well. Plus we'll be talking about star wars the high republic which is basically Disney Star. Wars new plan for a lot of stuff coming up starting later this year with books with television things of that nature. We're going to ask the question. Is it the right direction to go back into the past and focus on that for a lot of your material possibly even movies as well and if that's a new direction for star wars are we cool with it or maybe going ahead and going into a different direction? So we'll talk about that coming up later in the show as well also something very important. I know we'd like to just talk about light. Pop Culture subjects all the time but every now and then real news gets into the fray so the corona virus. It's out there. A lot of people are worried about where it's headed. What's happening with it? And all that and obviously going to be taking a toll already has taken a toll already on the entertainment industry. So we'll discuss that major issue coming up on the show as well but I my friend of Berry surprise resignation kind of a resignation so to speak as Bob. Iger the man who's been guiding the Disney Empire for well over a decade now steps down a CEO to focus in on creative duties. So his I guess new task in life. That's just solely focused on the creative direction for the Disney Empire mainly the marvel the star wars the Disney stuff like that and he's turned over to the man that was in charge of the Disney parks. And that is Bob Shape. So Bob. Shape is now Disney C. E. O. So I WANNA ask you my friend. Did this come as a surprise to you. I know this is something that was going on his book tour and he'd already said that he was going to be retiring by the end of twenty twenty one but out of the blue. This came as quite a surprise to me and I'm sure it came as a surprise to a lot of other people as well. Di Come as a surprise because he was always the one who is like confirming decisions made by Disney like. It didn't really seem like there is a lot going on. Behind the scenes that would indicate any tension or any danger with his job or anything going on so is kind of came out of nowhere really and Makes me wonder like what what was going on behind the scenes. Because we're hearing more and more like there's all these stories coming out with Kevin Magee talking about how there's the diversity in the Disney Museum was walked away or the marvel films almost walked away like we're we're hearing lately a lot of stories about Discontent behind the scenes at at Disney. So it wouldn't be surprised if like there's a lot of this stuff is just being covered up. People aren't talking about it. There's a nondisclosure agreements or whatever's going on but it just it. Yeah it's Weird. It makes me wonder what else is happening behind the scenes that we're not hearing about. I will say that he was asked by obviously shareholders and the executives at Disney. Bob Iger meaning to stay in the platform as did C. C. E. O. Back I think it was a two thousand eighteen. Twenty nineteen thousand nine. He was asked to stay on so because he was going to retire. I think back then obviously promote his book an focusing on that which he has since released in twenty nine thousand nine hundred. It's done a book tour based off of that but I think he is planned originally was to go ahead and take a step back a couple years ago but he was asked to continue again. His contract was going to run out the end of twenty twenty one so this to me came as a little bit of surprise but he is not shifting away from the Disney Empire entirely which is something that I think a lot of people are breathing a somewhat of a sigh of relief because he's still focusing in on a overall creative narrative so I don't know where he will stand. Let's say for. Its marvel storylines for face for is Kevin Fi going to be the ultimate say on that or is it going to be Bob? Iger or is it going to be BOB SHAPE BACK? So that's what I'm a little bit confused on right now who is guiding some of these these narratives now going forward is going to be Bob. Eicher how much more of a hand will he have in the creative process when it comes to Kathleen Kennedy and what's going on Star Wars? Which will talk about here in a little bit of Star Wars the High Republic and the shift in Focus in. That is going to be a major part of that. What about everything? That's going on to Pixar on where it's going to be coming next week to theaters. How much Ford is he going to be part of that narrative for all the stuff going on as well so it's very interesting to see where the chips lie? I know for Botchy. Pec His task right off. The Bat is going to be tough. He's not going to have it as easy or as cool as what Bob. Iger did because right off the bat you've got the issues and concerns with the corona virus and your Disney parks overseas primarily right now being affected and potentially your tire park system being affected by the end of the year. Your movies a lot of people are going to be affected by that. In fact we're going to be talking about that again later on when it comes to major movies like black widow and Milan. He's not being given the greatest platforms right now. It's not being an easy transition so it's kind of curious. Oscar went ahead and did this at the time. He did this because this year is not going to be looking as swell as it did last year because last year we had what six or seven billion dollar movies. Your parks were earning revenue at a record pace. You raise rates but you still earning even more revenue. That last year was tremendous year. So I'm not quite that like you. Are that everything is on the up and up and Bob Iger telling everybody in reassuring to everyone that this is not done out of any danger or health issues or behind the scenes chicanery. I'm not totally convinced on that. Because right now instability lies on the horizon for Disney. Yeah I mean there's a there's a lot of things going on. You know a lot of things waiting up ahead that we don't really know how to handle or or you know you. You mentioned the corona viruses thing. You know all these franchises are marvels moving their franchises in different directions. Now introducing all his new Hero Star. Wars is starting this new era lot. Lot of moving pieces going on a lot of lot of wheels and action. You know. We're just now. Seeing the results of the Fox merger always new properties Disney plus and. He's he has his his. He has his job cut out for him right he has. He has a lot of work ahead of them. So it's not going to be a walk through the park. And perhaps that's why Bob Eiger step down like he was just didn't WanNa start all these projects and then leave him a year later who knows but You know it's not. It's not a fun task to be. Ceo of Disney. I'm I'm thinking but at the same time. It should be in honor for him to be entrusted with the because I mean they think that he can handle it so let's hope that he does You know he does what needs to be done and good things from Disney coming up here. Let's hope that continues to be the case but it is. I mean you can easy see. It's going to be a rough time at least in the first few months because of what's going on you know as we talk more and more about the corona virus and that becomes more of issue and we'll talk more about that again in the back half hour of the show more about how it will affect the industry going forward and some of the things that were going back and forth that are being said being done about the corona virus real life. My friend is going to be kind of tough and again. Also you've got a changing dynamic when it comes to the Marvel. Cinematic Universe got some unknowns as far as phase four. And we've talked about this. Before it's not a certain slam dunk with marvel as for with all the new properties that they're introducing not only from a dizzy plus standpoint but from a cinematic standpoint which Shang Chee and the internals. These are complete unknowns. This is a great time to introduce it because you come off the success of phase three but phase four is going to be very trick on how you go ahead and go about it. Dc is now you know try somewhat with birds of prey aside. Has Its act together too much more of an extent than it did two three years ago. So there's all these different changing things star wars we talked about the declining returns where the rise of skywalker earned less than one half or earned about one half of what Star Wars. The force awakens it. So you got declining returns on your star wars properties. So what does that mean going? Forward I mean on the surface. You think everything's great for someone like Bob Shape. Pick to come in there and guide the dizzy ship. But it is going to be some tough sledding ahead for Bob shape back and I hope that he's up to the challenge because again as not everything was great as it was last year. I mean we could go on and on and on about all the great things that happened with Disney last year this year again like we were talking about Josh. It could be a whole different story by the time we talk that the end of this year for Disney. Yeah just a lot of unpredictability right now right. It's hard. I'm guessing even like they're market. Researchers are having a hard time figuring out where things are going and and what what. The market's going to look like even six months from now so it's you know you had mentioned it's interesting because you had mentioned the Disney park in corona virus and things like that are going to see a decline in people visiting theme parks like how what exactly. What kind of effect is this going to have on it? And then you know. We'll talk more about this later. But how long until a it normalizes writing everything kinda levels back out. That's the big question and we don't know you know there's no market research. Nobody really knows anything at this point. Exactly it's all unknown. It's all out there. We're not sure exactly where it's GonNa take but it is going to be an interesting ride nonetheless and for the folks that are following Disney closely like Bob Shape Pec. You've not been given the greatest in the world. And again he still has to deal with the fallout of Twenty First Century Fox and that merger. And everybody's talking about how.

Yes right not for the state next to it right. Yeah I believe in the authority of the State is what I'm saying. Let's silly over a centralized I want big government. See that one of the founding of our country Jerry. I don't know if you understand. This huge intrusive government puts their hands in all of your stuff. We're our takes it over.

And they can only eat eucalyptus the eucalyptus and they filibuster. It's not like a real lame duck bowled and they get into filibustering season. You don't WanNa be around. They're not allowed and that's when they mate. Yeah that's Big News that happened this week. Is Bob Eiger? You know him I do yeah. He stepped out really. He's the CEO of Disney. Now is that whether stock price been crashing? Yes absolutely bad like I lost a ton of money. He's stepped down and Bob Shape replaces him. That's not good Finally step down. He chose to. He said it was the right time for him to step down the longtime CEO since two thousand five. That's a long time. Yeah fifteen years. He took over after Michael. What was his name I know Mike Eisner Michael Eisner. Who is the most dynamic? Ceo Disney ever from like mid eighties on the way. He's like responsible for everything except for like one. Bob Eiger was evolved. They so bob. Iger were pixar over so his claim to fame and to be honest. Disney was stalling a bit towards the end of Michael Eisner's but if you look back at some of the stuff Michael Eisner did. It was incredible but Bob Bob he was a was a president of NBC Universal. I think at the time or something he came from more from Hollywood and his whole idea was hey. We need own intellectual property. That's what we need. Yes so we need to get a hold of these entities that produce intellectual property and everything will fall in place from there and so he orchestrated the purchases of Pixar and marvel and you know Lucas Arts Lucas Twentieth Century Fox Twentieth Century Fox. He bought that for the IP. And that's genius because he's got this east the company on-track now for another fifty years of success absolutely apparently with an interview on CNBC. He said it's actually been in the works for the last few years And they set it up. They identified Chepe pick. What's his name? Bill Bob Bob shape a few years? Bill Belt built shape. Boekelberg built shape coming in going to take over the lead on this. Yup Bill always does a good job. Apparently the board like some and he's been named as the new CEO so we'll see what happens But yes I would say you should have dumped some stock out of Disney if you were in it A while ago I just bought a bunch today. 'cause it's like way down so. I'm like yeah. I'm more kind of a bear market. The stock market is crashing and burning in fact. Hirono virus already erased like almost a year's worth of gains really. It's really bad tell you. What my My 401k did pretty good. Well it's called the P but it did pretty good last year last year. But I'm saying up until this point but I've lost all of it now and I am broken. I can never retired up until this point. The growth was like Like fifteen to twenty percent depending on what you're invested in and pretty much. Most of those gains have been wiped out. But it'll come back that's ugly. Yeah it's brutal but I bought more stock today. Yeah let's keep talking about that We'll talk about because it's corona virus. That's why it's going now it's stupid. It's the dumbest thing in history. So you're talking about this before the show we were and there was a Dr drew on the news. And if any if I'm GONNA listen to anyone it's definitely Dr Drew Doctors for his name and he helped me through so many bad relationships you made. You made love connections unbelie but I thought it's pointless Pretty solid he's just like this is all being orchestrated by the media like you guys are out of control your reporting shit that you have no idea what it means. Yeah you're listening to science. You're not listening to the doctors here. Just Click baiting and playing on people's fears fearmongering in. It's hurting our economy. Here's the thing though. A If people don't understand that the media has been been doing this for years. I mean this has been a thing worse so dumb Jerry it's been ramping up in like it's like compounding every year on how bad. I think the media gets on just Rollin. Smoke up your butt because it's not true. I realized that when I was deployed like we did some things when we were deployed like some humanitarian missions. Like hananel like under the table yet. Like yes assassinations. Now we just went to school did some things. We went to schools in hand. Handed out like school supplies last day. In all of it yes to yeah we realize people yeah hundred precise part of a CIA program and yeah. It was called sterilized stations. Anyway so we were doing this stuff and then like we had some people that were with us like reporters that were with us and there was like an engineering group. That was there that was building schools and everything and the only thing that they reported on was about like death that had happened in in the area because of us not not be specifically but because of the US they had talked about like how we basically destroyed the city Even though we were actually they're rebuilding. It wasn't us that destroyed it at all. It was the fighting that had been going on previously. Like none of it that they were witnessing when they were with us was ever reported in all of the other stuff that was put on. The news wasn't even what they were there for. And it just really ticked me off because none of it was even remotely accurate to what they saw. So they came there and reported on something that they kind of just fabricated and it was so aggravating. Because everybody was excited to see this big news story like our unit is going to be on the news and then when we saw it they didn't even report the right unit. First of all they told they said that we were from Wisconsin. I am not from Wisconsin. Condole much definitely not Johnson And it was just like bad reporting a put a bad taste in my mouth and then so many other things were reported while I was there about certain things that went on. I just don't agree with and from then on watching the news I was like well. That's probably not true. Yeah and it's really not true. It's crazy because he was talking about the corona virus. How it's actually pretty. Maybe this is all bullshit too. So don't take my word on it. But he's like it's really pretty mild illness comparatively like when you look at the amount of people that die from influenza and like nobody thinks about that right and it's the same or influences worse and they're like well but more people have died now from. Corona virus than. What's the last one bird flu? Or whatever SARS SARS and he's like yeah but not per capita not not the rate. He's like you just said it like you're sitting next to me hearing me say this yet but you're so dumb that you can't understand what I'm saying. He said yes. More more people died but more people have had it so the death rate is way lower than sorrow or gas like. Yeah but more people have died and he's just like the success rate of it is not as good as what a normal flu would be. Well I don't know that I didn't mention what they were reporting on that I think it like but then the reporting made is seventeen. Thousand confirmed cases four hundred deaths or whatever it's been he goes but there's probably been hundreds of thousands of unreported cases like if they people have this in China and it's a mild illness like the flu. How many people are going to get that illness recover and never get reported? Listen at this point I mean I'm not saying something to be worried about. I would take everything seriously. I would take it seriously and I obviously with any. It just came out today at work. They because the CDC released a a to say like. Make sure you're doing everything you can to not spread your hands. If you're sick. Stay home exactly. It was all these. It was the standard stuff that you would put out for any flu And it is the standard for any flu. That what they tell you to do Stay home if you're sick. Wash your hands. Don't cough on people you know basically all that stuff So I would say absolutely take it seriously but I just don't think it's to the point where people need to really freak out about it. Is it to the point now where we have to have. Our stock market crashed. No second most of the levels of two thousand eight no not at all. I don't think it's ridiculous and I understand. You also have to take into consideration like how how good is China's you know health your way. They take care of people gnawed or the way I don't know either but I just feel like it's probably not to a level that we are. I wouldn't make that assumption. You don't think so no. I wouldn't make that assumption in most areas of China China's huge. I know it's huge and this is I think we're this is mostly emanating from his fairly like not a every part of China populated region. But I don't think it's like the higher population regions. I don't really know it's not. I'm not sure to be still taking hold over there right. I mean I guess but when he talked about seventeen thousand cases in China a country one billion people. Yeah isn't it more than that? Yeah I think so. That's a lot I don't really know I mean. Obviously it's something to be on your radar but it's definitely something not to be worried about. It's definitely way less than what the news is making it out to be. Yes it wouldn't change your daily irony insane and you could take my advice. I'm a doctor. Your Doctor Chris. Wake is drew his first name or last name. I don't know but I don't even know if he's really a doctor. He's a doctor of love. Some caller the doctor of love. Yeah yeah kissed some people call them. Marie stay call me. Dr Love Comment Doc to know this one. I'm thinking of I think that's that's a good song. I liked that Song Kiss. Have you ever seen kissing?

"The Walt Disney Company has named a successor to Bob. Eiger we'll tell you who the new is and why Disney made that choice then. Megan Ganz and RAW mcilhenny on their new comedy. Mythic quest it said inside a video game company but it's designed to appeal to Gamers and non gamers alike definitely at the heart of it so I always make it a pretty typical workplace comedy. Where hopefully would see your own workplace reflected even if you didn't know anything about video games and we visit music festival that's known as Europe's version of south by southwest. That's today frame. We'll be right back. Welcome to the frame John Horn. There is news today that Bob. Iger is stepping down immediately as CEO of the Walt Disney Company to make room for his successor. And that has bob shape. Heck who runs Disney's theme Parks Division? Last year Eiger announced that he would step down when his contract expires. At the end of two thousand twenty one he will remain at the company as Executive Chairman and according to a Disney press release will direct the company's creative endeavors joining me to discuss the Disney news. Is Ben Fritz? He's the West Coast Bureau chief at the Wall Street Journal. He's also the author of the book. The big picture the fight for the future of movies so Bob. Eiger has mentioned several times that he was going to leave his current position. What are we to make the timing right now? it's tough to tell exactly why. Why Sudden Change? After all these years about you're saying he was gonNA leave and then and then on saying he was gonNA leave and delay. He's delayed his retirement numerous times over the past decade And he's you know less than a year and a half into His latest three year contract so It's kind of surprising and but on the other hand like it's very eager to sort of do it do it all in secret. And then all of a sudden announcement the world in an unexpected way so his successor Bob. Shaye PACK RUNS. Disney's biggest business that is theme parks and consumer products. What are we to make of his selection and were there other people who might have been competing for the job? There certainly are were other people like I think the biggest contender currently at Disney's Kevin Mayor who's running their new streaming effort. You know if that's led by Disney plus And he's piece Benefit of top strategy company for a long time You know with cheaper amongst the current chronic executives is a bit of a safe choice right. He's running. He's running sort of the traditional businesses like theme parks. Obviously maybe the business most associated with Disney as opposed to streaming which is certainly the future of Disney And you know by all accounts shape pick is a very smart guy a very competent guy But certainly is not so doesn't sort of had like the the charisma. Let's say he's in as much of the you know sort of a great public speaker of this. You Know Bob. Agar's let's talk a little bit about what Bob Eiger has done at the Walt Disney Company. I'm going to name four deals. Pixar seven point. Four Billion Marvel fourbillion. Lucasfilm four billion and last year the Walker twenty-first-century Fox seventy one point three billion those are all kind of content movie TV DEALS. What kind of studio is Bob? Eiger leaving behind before we talk about the rest of the company. I mean Bob is leaving behind what I think anybody would have to say you sort of the most successful And tightly run meter. Entertainment Company in In America Today But Disney's very focused on franchises. They were ahead of the rest of Hollywood and focusing their business on franchises. You said a lot of that through acquisitions of Pixar and Marvel and star wars and franchises. Obviously sort of at the heart of the movie business these days and then was somewhat ahead of the curve and realizing he couldn't keep selling and stuff like that Disney would have to launch its own streaming service to compete which is why Disney pluses already out there and It's you know is is certainly ahead of what we're seeing from his competitors like. Hbo Madison Peacock. Which are still to come. I think later this year. So you'd have to say he's always been for media executive pretty ahead of the curve and and being a leader Disney plus as part of the Fox deal. They got a portion of Hulu than they bought out the rest of the portion of Hulu from comcast. So what is Disney focused on now in terms of taking on Netflix with streaming they have Disney plus they have Hulu? Is that where a lot of their money and attention? That's going right now. Absolutely I mean the future of Disney Entertainment Distributor is Disney plus Hulu and ESPN plus right. Those are It's three major streaming services and traditional. Tv business is being shrunk rapidly and that's where it just means putting all of its efforts And a lot of its films stuff is going there as well So that that is the future of Disney but yet the One business they have certainly not shrinking is the one that shaped expert overseeing which is part of consumer products right while traditional. Entertainment is being disrupted. People still love to go to theme parks and Disney theme parks or are more successful than ever these days And people love to buy the toys as well so That's sort of the more traditional side of the business that is not being transformed by by digital technology. And I think you could make the argument. Theme Parks have what's known in business as a wide moat. They're not a lot of competitors to theme parks but there is something called the corona virus and there are problems that theme parks and cruise lines of which Disney has a cruise line are also facing pressures. So what does that business look like going forward? And what does it tell us about how Disney values theme parks that Bob? Shaye pack would be running the whole company. Well I think in the short run is not a great moment to be running theme parks in Shanghai and Hong Kong is Disney does and to have cruise ships So that businesses under pressure right now but I you know presuming. How do you get this virus under control? I think Everybody would think businesses will continue to be successful as they have been and You know about shape that has by all accounts than done a very good job running those businesses and he's generated a lot of profits for the difficulties any company. That's that's as you said it's a lot of the revenue and profits come in you know streaming the future but streaming is a money losing business for now and I think you know with disappointment. Disney's kind of saying yes remains an important part of future but Disney is still a company that at its heart is about the experiences. People have theme parks. Bob Eiger will leave a great track record. I think the Disney company very impressive guy in person great public speaker. There's been some speculation about him running for political office. Do you think that's potentially part of his future Anything's possible right. I think I urge you know. Has He's publicly said that. He toyed with the idea of running for president this year and he decided it wasn't right for him But he's very politically active Democrat. I would not be surprised if he's hoping that you know if our next president is a Democrat that he might you know have some kind of a role in administration. I think that's something. He would probably love to do. Fifty profile very well. Well I'M GONNA. He's not jumping in this year. It feels like we really don't need another billionaire in the race Ben. Fritz is the West Coast Bureau chief for the Wall Street Journal. Ben Thanks so much for coming back on the show. Sure it's my pleasure. Don't coming up on the frame.

But I think he needs to stay in school for at least one I pay one more year on the John John line a year with can't hurt you with Sanderson get bigger. I mean. Yeah, it can't hurt you. But you know, you're learning. Look you're learning the game. When you have Johnny Linas goes, not just rolling out balls and saying, okay, we gotta run my my run, my my place. Okay. And so I mean if that's what he wanted. He shouldn't have came here. But I don't think that's what he wanted. Here's another question of there's more. I'm joking. Oh, yeah. Bob shape Patterson in the quarterback position. I personally think obviously open up during the off season he's gonna let him compete. He just that's just who he is. However, I do think shape has a starting job. I do think he'll start next year. I don't see what he didn't do this year like. What did he do this year that made people so upset with that? It's not about that. I'm not saying it is. I'm just saying everyone's, you know, it's not about that. Maybe Joe Milton. Got better may be true. Maybe maybe Dylan McCaffrey got better. So I mean, everybody's got you. Hey, there's no in between either get better, you get worse. But why are we worried about the quarterback is worried about it? I think what I think you asked the question, I think Jim Harbaugh done it each and every year he's been here where he's opened up the quarterback position to find the better quarterback. And I think they've all gone through it seen it. I mean, we all know he's not gonna say who that starter is after spring ball either. But as I said he has he named the starting quarterback much earlier this past season, then he has in before the first game. I mean, those let those first three years is the first game that he named the starter. But last year. Name the starter two weeks to go with two weeks to go ten ten fifteen days to go. So they could get used to being the starter you right with that being said, I mean, you have a true friend. You have a true freshman and Joe Melton. You have Dylan McCaffrey coming off an injury, Brandon Peters. And now you I mean, I I don't know. He would be a redshirt freshman now who Joe million-. Did he play four games? Did he get all four games in? He doesn't have to pay four games. He doesn't have to. I don't know if he's a redshirt. If you if he played more than four games he played more than four. Okay. Then he can look he can come back a year or badly. Either way. It's not like we don't have the potential lying in the quarterback position. It's just a matter of who's I guess like you were saying who improves over the off season and who wants to take the job over exactly. That's the problem with. I don't have a problem with that. If Shays that guy he's that guy. Right. What if he's not then obviously somebody else's that guy, and they have trusted him to take over and lead that team on the offensive side. No problem with that. No problem. Okay. I I don't have a problem with it. Either. And I don't think the coach problem with it. Because if you look at it each and every each and every year you've had different starter. You know, you haven't had a. You know, a guy that's been there. So that's where we are. You left your mic on by the way? Are you on this fine evening? He doesn't know. Hey. He doesn't know. Sorry. I'll put John Hall John here in just a second. You left your, okay? You left your mic on when you answer the phone? Yeah. You have to turn your mic off. I heard that. Everybody else heard that too. That's fine. Hey, you'll get your you'll get it. Don't worry. Don't worry you'll turn around. And I like why am I not hearing anything out of the speakers seven three four nine hundred fifty seven three four nine hundred fifty. Let's go to who Andrew was talking to. Hey, Brock and west Bloomfield, what's. Hey, how you doing? I'm good. I just you know, I'm working with I'm working with a young when again or you just coaching him up. Jay mom, trying of dry. Big day to day. I just wanna know what's the narrative? Now Ajay mocha's went back. D- committed. Doom and gloom around here. It was Ohio. Yeah. Here we go. Kids is transferring and coach Harbaugh the guy for the job. What are what are we you know, what are we doin' around here? So now that he's committee ambition has the number one class in the big. I mean, I guess what the narrative now is it? What is he gonna do? I mean, he's beginning classes the last couple years, whereas the big ten title. Well, eventually that's gonna come out Brock, you know, as well as oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. So I mean, I. You know, I know I heard ease response yesterday. I love e you know, I mean, as we just don't see eye to eye on you know, that that barbershop tight conversational. You're right. What we like about this sports radio weei. I don't want a bunch of guys agreeing all the time either all year. With me. I if you don't think. Yeah. But no, but I'm happy. I'm Jay Moore. I'm happy that it seemed like there was no holes in this class. And what I mean by that is they address every level office of line defensive line linebackers secondary running back receivers every position group that better got more depth coach air water is able to do what he did. And and allow these kids to continue to be molded under his tutelage and things like that. I mean, these are the kinds of classes that in like, we'll be talking about this class the way we were talking about this Bush, and resigned Gary class. Yeah. You know, national championship aspirations. I know what you you. You are right. And they got the right guys there. I mean, if these look brought we talking twenty seven guys, I mean, it could be a priority. But that being said, I mean, if you eighteen of those guys that's pretty much twenty. I mean, you need twenty two, but you get eighteen is to be able to contribute as a part of that as a part of that trust me, you're going to be a good team. It's gonna be a good team. They just got to come out of it. It definitely. And that's and that's what you know. We look at for it just real quick her jaw talking about basketball where Ignace will play. Yeah. NBA position lives basketball J mall. Now, it is. I got. Yeah. If you could play no matter if you will want two or three I mean, I'll look at teams like Milwaukee bunk Philadelphia. I mean, I mean, Ben Simmons the point guard for Philly east sixteen John is basically playing point for Milwaukee. I mean, if you could play they're gonna they gonna put you on the court, just call it position lives basketball at this point. That's that's what the league. The. Right. I agree. I mean, look, I think he's gonna be a great player. I think we get a little we we we we tend to have these kids going NBA two quick. Let them go. Let them play for two. I mean, let them play at least two years, right? Right. No. I agree. I mean, sometimes I think because the way the NBA. Did you get a key that you're like, okay? He's ready to go because they they don't want you to get to own. And then you don't have the potential, but then I look at a guy like carrots who stay for as long as he did he was still a first round pick and what year two year three and was really just starting to come around to the NBA. I mean, they were talking about him being the most improved player this year before he got hurt. Yeah. You're right. So you you wanted to those type of situations and things like that. So it's like just let the kids get better. Look at what Jordan pool is going and how much better he is John. I mean, people ready to throw him out with the bath water. Goodness. Do you? Remember? Even made him look bad in that five minutes stretch. I I mean, people were you're right. They were ready to get rid of him. Not letting him, you know, not letting them play. I mean, let them get get a chance to get in there. But I mean really brought give him the time. Yeah. Yeah..
"bob shape" Discussed on WDTK The Patriot
"They're there when you need them. We're talking now with Bob shaped runs sports national, Bob how you doing? I'm good. How are you doing? I'm doing fine, man. I've looked at your stats. So we're one thing. I not a couple of things I did not know about you. You're actually the homerun leading NCWA home run champion. Yeah. Hundred years ago was that. Book. It was during the nineteen hundreds what? Sixty six Connecticut and. Games because it's so cold up there. But they went percentage number per game. And. Yeah. Home as I did what we played eighteen games. So he had seventeen games that one percentage point. Well, it's up there. You've had a great career baseball. You've been managing the big lease bench. Coach for three teams player. Personnel director special assistant special assignment scout man and first base coach in Kansas City. You know, I had a good friend of mine. It was a first base coach. And I'm sure you know, him Dan carnival. I know of them, but I really don't know him. He was first base coach he was a first base coach back in. Late sixties early seventies. And he got to be a friend of mine used to come in. And we had a third base coach in Detroit Grover racing or what a great baseball man, he was was from Saint Louis, and and he introduced me to of and we and we became prince later when he was a scouting scout. He's from buffalo used to go work out like crazy this guy. He's got dues. Eighty seven years old went back to buffalo, and I knew him, and and that you bandaged Kansas City. You succeeded. Tony. I I six eighty John McRae came in after that. Right. I manage one game. And let's just happen because we wanna know maybe inter manage again in two thousand five and a good for a while. But then all of a sudden. Yeah. Pitching that Lewis was battle here. Anyway, that's when fire. But and then buddy. Right. And. But he was great. Outstanding. I worked for Tony was a good person and good baseball guy. But when you're short handed in some areas, especially pitching how demand demanded yard or whatever. Second workout. So I took over for a while. And then buddy took over and. Yeah, but he found out that wasn't gonna be a piece of cake either. But. Yeah. But he's a great vantage. Okay. So fortunate a lot of really good guys. John Walker was outstanding. He's up. I wanna gave me a job in the big leagues Antonio's Grady took over and then and then of course. Yeah. But he came in. And but you know, he was great to me too. And. Buddy guys at the end of season, which is fine. I mean, I had eight years for eighty to ninety one more two thousand two thousand five so I can't see with great town. Great place at coach I four years. We had good teams last four years. We had one good team. And of course, they won the World Series two years ago, and they put it together. And that has happened for me because the great people in Kansas City, get great fans great ballpark and it over the winter, and they got a winner. So. We came in and took over and started grassroots, and when I was touted bear the general manager, and he did a great job too. But its hands are tied. They didn't want to spend a lot of money. So instead of drafting best guys drafted guys could sign cheap. And you know, that's what happened. Dodgers bench coach with the dodgers from and then Manley took over you decided to step down, and let them bring in what a younger coach is that what you told them. Best defense. I manage down in nineteen eighty years first full year in a big lakes, and then he helped me get to the dodgers was Joe Joe Harry says bench coach Donnie took over, but I'd had twelve years and that wasn't really a west coast guy, east coast guy in Danica. I don't feel bad. I said, but I'm done. I said I twelve years. I don't know. I had enough bring it somebody's gonna have for you know, four or five six years take and we're still best defense. But the point where I just realized that, you know, then you're younger guy at that time, they realize it, but I was second oldest coach in the big leagues. Thank you. Uncles stuff. Anyway, said young man's game. Who's over you the big time. Texas. I think it was I can't take more. Jackie more. You got a good guy. He was catching the Tigers. Jackie real. Well, he boy he coach. Oh my God. He is he's still he's done a baseball anymore is he I don't know. I don't think. So I never really get to know. I know Jackie. But I know real well and the guy like I said, I mean, I could soda fun goes my arm shot. I couldn't so batting practice. And but I do it a capitated, but the more you coach in the longer the way the game has changed even then you got a ballpark at twelve thirty one o'clock and just a lot of times that you just don't have a life. You know what I mean and your whole life depends on when losing a game. And I enjoyed competition. I enjoyed working with the players and teaching players and baseball, but Joe left pick pickets on guys, and you know, take the burden off him. I don't know if he would have five or not, but I'd be up to the point. So now, your special assistant to the Washington general manager there, and that was a tough year last year, wasn't it. Yeah. It didn't work out too. Well, we had no manager that didn't have any experience. But you know, he's the guy and the coaching staff, which I thought they were great coach and everything, but we have some serious. I mean, you know, key injuries to key players, and it just didn't get off a good start. And they just stumbled, and you know, just couldn't get it going spaghetti going through the end. But yeah, Bryce Harper wanted to like three months slump and that didn't help to go break, but didn't get the job at the right time. And we had great talent. Again, you guys get hurt and some young guys did well, but it just. Just really couldn't get a I couldn't get anything. Really? Yeah. Get together get a long winning streak, or you know, ten out of twelve type of thing. So hopefully, you know this year, it'd be better situation. So guys will get better than played away. They can play, and you know, some guy's underachieved and year before a lot of guys overachieved in order to win unique guys overachieved. And that just didn't work out through LSU. We're talking with Bob Schaffer, special assistant general manager of the Washington nationals and taking your calls at eight hundred nine two three nine three eight five eight hundred nine two three nine three eight five. What a laundry list of things that he had including the NC double home run champion. I will get floored me when I read that. I didn't know it was percentage. Right. Well. Days. That was we had wooden bats. And in college was different game. But the game changes every day. Oh, different. It was before. And you know for good or for bad defense, you talked to, but I'm old school and some of the stuff I see is looked up to watch. But it's still a great game. Well, you know Doyle Alexander keep keep the Tigers trade for John Smoltz. And that was something he said if anybody steps up aluminum bat when I'm on the mound. I walk off the mound and never come back. Yeah. Well, there's no doubt about jumps up there. Living in bed. Oh, it's terrible. Somebody get hurt. But that just went to high school schools went to it because it's more cost effective and ensure that it was kind of a little fake power type of thing that thought that about it. Yeah. We get some calls for let's start off with cowboy in Windsor. You're on sports dot com by with Bob Schaffer. Oh, hi, Bob. Now, of course, Whitey Herzog was eighty seven yesterday, and did you work with Whitey Herzog at any capacity. And did you ever think you see the day in baseball where there'd be almost as Benny strikeouts base hits? Maybe carrying manner at least I'll leaving. Thank you put me on running. Great talking to you what Bob. Okay. Bob. Why why did was before me? I talked to what he'll have we we share the complex has admits in Saint Petersburg and around where do you little bit? I mean, he was outstanding. Yeah. Great baseball guy. And if you could manage this as the way, it's going. No, no. I don't like I mean, he's he's great baseball very old school baseball game. I'm old school myself. But not quite as. Oh sam. But what was the other question? Just. What what was the other question said said something did you ever see the day when you'd see what what what was hers? The only question the other day. Oh, yeah. Strikeouts. Well, the problem is the games all based on stats now. I mean. All these guys might put numbers they swing the same with two strikes to do with no strikes a lot of guys. And you know, they have to shift is something that's come into effect. Because it, you know. Article guys a little things stick it out and everything and. Do you like two days? But nobody with guys on base. I don't like it. I think it it hurts help them. I mean, you can't turn double plays because shift that I would play situation than the right when I came up with the mileage. Cardinal George Kissel. Probably the best teacher in baseball Kissel. You said, you know, she didn't your for that will play. It's an whole shake his hand. Have all the information in the. Yeah. I don't know. I watched you know, like hundred thirty major league games last year. And I think the shift it helps to nobody on both guys on base. I think about just playing with more straight away and you can over chips. Yeah. Strong colours because site opposite that type of thing. But I think sometimes it hurts the pitcher has the team when they over shifts to the double play because over we can get the second base. It turned it flights. But that's you know. I can't stand the ship. They don't want to shift when they're on the mound. Well, when you play ball, and it's someone there to catch it this kind of stuff. But again, that's that's the new way the baseball. But he wanted strike outs. Yes stats. I mean players play for the stats because they get paid for the stats. And I remember when I first started coaching if you struck out like ninety times, you sit out the last two games now strike on one hundred not guys, right? One hundred twenty hundred thirty all-star break. I know. Oh, yeah. Coach billion strikeouts. Eighteen. You know strike. I never took a bad hop and never started third. So you know, strike out so bad. I mean, I really think team that the a boom play has a better chance to win games. And. Some power hitters. No doubt the mounts and sometimes have rated those out a whole bunch of great. But it's thirty five home runs. Sometimes probably, you know, half of those mean, anything what are you gonna play with him in at third base in less than two outs. Scores a run. I mean that's also escorted game is driving runs in Houston is proving your point lead the baseball and balls put in play last couple of years and got him a World Series and close on this year. Well, Kansas City a few years ago. Today. Yes, right out play great defense. And I mean, that's the way the game should be played in the me. That's what the game is about. You get up there as a hitter you get through things. Get on base or dance basements in strikeouts. Don't advance base. So I mean somehow going to make that adjustment. And you know, we got a kid one soda. How much you seen him? But this guy is tremendous. I mean, it's naturally you guys American people in Detroit. But once so well ahead of his age. He's nineteen years old. With two strikes the ball the other way, and you're joke up top of the plate little bit. And he just eat a hell of a to strike hitter. And he's nineteen years old. So it can be done. It's just that mentality. You know, they they they don't. They don't discount strikeouts. They did the past. Let's take some more calls. We've got too many questions for Bob Schaffer. We invite your calls at eight hundred nine two three nine three five eight hundred nine two three nine three five.

Well, speaking of brawny glad you're speaking of one right now. What do you mean? Your brawny you're five nine hundred seventeen inch pythons. What does a python sounds like an animal? That's all the talk about his. But he was using steroids and stuff. Back at anyway, anyways, I guess Wally Triplett died Thursday and Ron Johnson died today. I guess Ron Johnson running back. Yeah. I thought he died before he died today gets heard it on the Michigan said to me he said dementia. He said dementia. Oh, I know. Yeah. And his brother, of course, was Alex Johnson. He had to mention to. Yeah. He was a piece of work. Well, I don't care. What a pizza worke is look at all the crappy put up with baseball. And I would have been a big bigger piece of work than me. But any anyway. Oh, yeah. And of course today you don't worry perish sixty five today. Is it really? Okay. Johnson. Ron Johnson was a heckler runner. Oh, he was he should be in the hall of fame. If I'd go that far, but he was very very good cowboy he's in a college team. I know this isn't collar job, and he was seventy one Ron Johnson. Today. He passed away. He was seventy one seventy one money. Yeah. I didn't think today's his birthday Alzheimer's dementia. It's almost the same thing along with them. Almost the same thing. But anyway, I guess after that eighty yard run by Pacheco for for Rutgers. Michigan finally awakened didn't. They tied to scored seven. And then Michigan awakened just blown them on. And you you knew that was going to happen. That's a touchdown favorites. They are Rutgers doesn't belong high school team. You know, this coaches been there three years in Rutgers. He's supposed to turn the program around. It's getting worse his recruiting for the three years. He's been there is one of the worst in the country. Nobody wants to play at Rutgers in New Jersey. Do you think he's related to Hugh Jackson? Why would he be the former bounce coach? It was three thirty six and one over there before they got rid of him. No relation. But I mean, it's a. And that was a sad situation for him there in Cleveland to cleaning out. Position absolutely stinks. Rooting for him because his name is Hughie, and I had an uncle Huey Tertre. But no, I I don't think he's a great coach. But I think he's a lot better coach than better coach and that kind of record. But I would hope anybody we'd better coach that kind of record. We wonder. Yeah. But Cleveland has been a clown show for so many years is not even funny. But anyway, who do you think will be the Tigers shortstop next year since Iglesias won't be there? They're going to have to go and get one. I don't see anybody in this organization ready to come up by shortstop and Detroit right now. Now, I don't I wanted to see glaciers come back for a year or two if you would have accepted the offer. But they didn't I didn't. I know he was bad in the clubhouse for while. He was a little bit of a clubhouse lawyer. But I thought tour did he got his act together? I don't know that for facts, I don't go in the room at this guy can play shortstop. But he's not that bad of a hitter. He's a streaky hitter. But he's not that bad of a hitter. Yeah. They're going to have to go on and get a good defensive shortstop in a punch and Judy hitter. Obviously, probably and I'm gonna say less. Well, if they may keep re Khalil Mack off Stafford. And and and also were caught with respect. I think the lions twenty four the bears Twenty-one tomorrow. No way. Oh my God. They have. H is screwed to cover. They have no chance of beating the bears. I mean that bears defense is whether they keep killing Makov for ninety still out there, and and that running attacks going to be gone. Oh, good. They will keep him off of staffer because without your Johnson doesn't play. Oh my goodness. They're just going to Stanford to be gone over the. Only trouble is there you go. We've got somebody now. But they now they have to use Lawson in the end they as one of the the quarterbacks and sway won't play. And that's kind of a warrior a heck of a lot of worry. A heck of a lot of worry as right cowboy. Yeah. Oh, and by the way, you remember the record the edge FitzGerald. Is the guy would see in Detroit. Yeah. Yeah. Was off whitefish bay. No. Yeah. That was Canadians Canadian singers. He's still alive. Gordon, Lightfoot Hobie eighty next Saturday. He did a great job of that L. He did a great job on that was you know, my sister had the paper from the that day. But obviously it didn't have that. Is that in the paper because it was November tenth just think if she had managed to keep the paper from what well that wasn't that was a Saturday. And I think it would have been Sunday. So I think a little bit on the Monday paper the next day and just think of a topic here. She probably would have had a lot of money if she had kept that paper. Why just because of the paper and all that. Because it because of the tragedy. I know the tragedy that's goes without saying, but. Just an article in the newspaper though, isn't it? You can always go back and get those anyway. Oh, yeah. But when you yeah. But if you say that for like forty three years once couldn't you make a lot of money if you will. But I doubt it because you can anybody wants to they can go back and pick it up above. Well now. Yeah. But so anyway, so as far as far as the pistons are concerned. Yeah. Seems that Jackson is especially shooting a lot better. Bullet to Bullock was the second leading the three point percentage shooter last year. He's coming back and like the only Germans having a good season. But the only trouble is he's missing. So doggone many put Bax it's not even funny, but he's four shots the other night.

And he was sitting down. He was never up because of the leg injury. Of course. And we did the TV show. Of course, I presume reason I remembered I thought he was a thought he was touch taller than me. But I I I can't swear to that. Or I know he's not six speed. I know they always had them. Listen to six read I knew he wasn't six feet. But anyway, about five shave vantage the Kansas City Royals for a while. He did he was between management one thousand nine hundred ninety one for one game after Hal McRae took golden helmet.
