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

It stayed open every single day for the next thirty one years not closing again until the northridge earthquake shattered. The city's Com in Nineteen ninety-four. Even then it was only partially closed. The third closure comes as little surprise. Disneyland didn't open on September Eleventh.

Walt Disney World closes, paralyzing the company's tourism empire

"I'm Kim Masters and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as belony of the Hollywood reporter and Matt We are dealing with really talk about a moving target. We're we're trying to talk about the impact of course of corona virus on the entertainment world when we started thinking about this Disneyland theme parks. Were Open The executive now executive chairman of Disney Bob Eiger had talked to the Governor Gavin newsom and gotten Even though the governor has said gatherings of more than two hundred fifty people should not happen. The theme parks had gotten an exemption from this and this is really a losing bet I would say on Gavin Newsom spart because he now has the effect Disneyland literally closed. A couple of. I don't know an hour or two after this announcement so he has the negative of people saying what kind of decision is that. And it didn't even last long enough to in any way. Excuse it I mean the whole thing just as a fiasco politically I would think. Yeah that was a bad decision. And what we're seeing now is that this is such a moving target that even things that were claimed two days ago are then being revisited. You saw this. The march madness tournament first. They said that they're gonNA play the Games but without crowds then. Two days later the entire March madness tournament was cancelled. So you know the rolling target on this is pretty amazing and I think the assumption now is that the entire cultural and sports community in America and most of the world will come to a halt within the next couple days. Yeah I mean there's going to be ripple effects from this that are mind-bending. I mean obviously the irs itself is a pandemic and terrible terrible disaster but talking about specifically the business that we are covering we see. You know theaters were already challenged before this happened and now they're GONNA GET CLOBBERED. Disney as we were just talking about with key trying to keep the theme parks open as we speak the Orlando Park and the park in Paris is still open. The three of them in Asia are closed and now Disneyland. Disney has cruise ships Disney Hotels Disney has movies. I mean a company like that its stock tumbling And workers in. La are going to get clobbered too. I mean a lot of people working what are supposedly contract jobs with no benefits even though they are required to be at their desks day in day out. The State of California has allowed that A lot of people work on project to project. So we're we're going to see just a falling dominoes that it's going to need leadership to to to try to figure out how to manage this. You're not to mention the venues. I mean the entire touring industry and music has come to a halt so that combined with sporting events and anyone who works at one of these venues is now out of a job. These are jobs based on these venues being full. Disney has said that they're going to pay their quote unquote cast members their employees while the parks are closed. But for a lot of these gig employees The option just isn't

Disney CEO Bob Iger Steps Aside; Bob Chapek Named New Head

"Let's move onto Disney some big news. Disney CEO BOB. Iger is stepping down as CEO but will remain executive chairman until twenty twenty one. Now Bob Chepe pack will take over. Chepe heck was the chairman of Disney parks experiences and products. He's been at Disney for a long time. Twenty seven years and we knew was going to step down. Yeah but still. This is a bit of a surprise in who the new CEO is. Yeah a lot of people thought you know be Bob. Eiger came out last year and he put something called the ride of a lifetime and he basically forecast that he was at the he was at the end of his time as CEO of Disney. The you know that he would be stepping down. It was not in the middle of the route of lifetime. This was kind of a a foreshadowing. The timing is really odd again. Given the corona virus and Disney Disney parks worldwide or about thirty percent of the revenue of the total profitability of the company. Like this is a big deal yet. A lot of people didn't realize you know the thought that the next leader from Would come maybe from Disney plus from the from the video side and they didn't they went and tapped a guy who's been at the benefit the parks. Yeah I happen to think. It's all a big conspiracy just to keep the Bob's in power feels like a snap. It feels like a snub to someone like Kevin Mayor. Who's been heading up Disney streaming service and Disney for so long has been saying streaming Disney placid future of Disney and to bring somebody in who has experienced running the parkside. The experience I've Disney is an interesting choice and the market doesn't seem to like it. But I I kind of do minus the Bob Bob thing strange but I think it's a good thing because as you said it's the parks in the experience that has been driving Disney throughout his entire history. And you don't want to put everything on streaming and ignore the extremely profitable important aspects. That is the Disney culture. That's created from experiences like parks the thing that's really interesting. And the Bob Eiger it. It's interesting to me that when Bob Eiger became the CEO. I don't know if you remember this but it was not a popular pick at all. It was not you know he was thought of as being the wrong guy coming from the wrong industry but what he has been. He's been a master capital alligator. Bought Pixar Lucasfilm's Fox Studios Marsa Marvel Marvel Tuck in acquisitions exactly exactly me transformational acquisitions. But people didn't realize you know people did not give him the credit in advance that that was what he was going to do. And I think one of the reasons that they went to the direction that they did is the thing that Bob Iger did that. People were surprised about is he really cracked the code on direct to consumer for Disney. Yeah and baby. Yoda and finally finally.

Disney's surprise CEO departure while Baby Yoda steals Toy Fair

"Disney's down. Co but will remain as executive chairman until the end of the year while departure has been widely anticipated. The news still comes as a bit of a shocker. Since he had delayed his retirement multiple times to find a successor. We've got one now name Bob Traffic. He'll take over CEO. But before we talk about Bob. Well let's talk about the original Bob Bob Eiger and his contribution to Disneyworld big highlights free opt above for Disney. Yeah Yeah it came nowhere in the middle of the earnings call yesterday and in a way he gets to go out on top like Disney plus their streaming service launch was very successful. The photo we just round the screen he gets to go out with like a photo of him and a little baby yoga. It's Kinda hard to not get around that so so beyond beyond dizzy plus which is obviously most recent thing but there. There's been a lot of big successes credited to Bob. I go right. He's I mean he's basically bought up. Most of our childhood are marvel. Wait what was the one I well? He basically bought Lucasfilm's Fox Star Star Wars and Fox right and so he's he's cobbled together. This sort of massive Hollywood infrastructure is actually improve the park's right when I think when he started a bunch of the parks were not doing well and he was credited towards like building up. Dizzy Disneyland Hong Kong and Japan and building up Disney California venture. So like he's done a lot of the company but gotta go back to Disney plus and the mandatory which is sort of the latest thing. That's fresh in our mind. This is the fascinating juncture since on one hand like there's so much now going forward especially the Fox and there's a lot of new activity going on so it's shooting step away amidst like marvel's like Face four walls. And of course we've got Yes like he kinda ends his his tenure with like this viral sensation. Yeah and having done in the launch of Disney plus done several interviews like going over early briefs that show and overseeing that it's all sort of confusing because there were twenty months left on his extension. I believe it was. Yeah Yeah and he is. He's sticking around. My guess is he's he's focusing largely on sort of the entertainment aspects of the film studio part of the business and leading the new. Bob Chapman deal so the day to day operations as CEO and then on their hand because so much was built up it might from the consumer perspective. It might not be that noticeable because everything has been put into motion and it's just a matter of them.

"Disney CEO BOB. Iger is handing over the keys to the magic kingdom immediately. What I couldn't maybe it's not really. He's not going anywhere. I know he's not going to play with this beautiful succession. It's so ordered. It's just weird that it comes down to show. I'm leaving today but anyway I ever stepped down. I WanNa hear whether you've I wanna hear your your you actually no one. I want to hear some of your water cooler scuttle butt. Todd you give you my theory and go wild whatever. Go while. You're seeing that if anyone doesn't know this my son was yesterday afternoon. Bob Stepping down as Disney CEO. It's effective yesterday and replaced by Bob. Pick which has done a good job at theme parks. I guess he's been there a long time. Head of the company's Global Parks and unlike NBC. I was thinking. Wow he's not content creative guys a park that we think of it differently at comcast I think parks are important but it was almost like a secondary thing that we did comcast got when they took me started with garden. Graham Cast Disney started with good argue both NBC Universal and and Disney have been very good at coordinating those parts. Were you surprised the parks guy would run the entire creative operation of Stephanie's yes I I I don't know anyway. He will report directly to either. Who's going to stay on through his contract as Executive Chairman and basically the guy is going to report to the board so the his contract goes through the end of twenty twenty one he been. Ceo For fifteen years overseeing a tremendous growth at Disney acquisitions like Pixar Marvel Lucasfilm and most recently Fox's well as his shift to streaming with the launch of ESPN plus Disney plus in an interview exclusive interview on CNBC. I explained his decision was we looked at the businesses. We felt we have a great set of assets. We have a great strategy. What's next and what was next in terms of my own priorities is making sure that the creative pipeline and the company was really rich that all our creative engines were working extremely well and I wanted spend more and more of my time on that. I'm not sure I want to be. Ceo Virus either so with a theme park. Here's my theory of the case. Okay bye-bye signs a new employment contract as part of the transaction to buy Fox Rupert Murdoch stipulates that he has to be there. Okay Hey that him. By the way we went wild speculation that prevents him from running for president. And if you're really into wild speculation there are people out there that are suggesting somehow that this is some kind of entree to some kind of a Bloomberg Eiger of now. It's taking that off the table. That's crazy however he's still going to be in this place. Becky said it. He's not going anywhere he's effectively. The two bobs are basically running this place. Bob's reporting to him. So if Bob the new Bob about doesn't work out for whatever reason Bob Eiger is still there. He's also seen many transitions where people are sitting in waiting. Why wait it's possible? And I hope I for the new Bob Sake that it works out but if it doesn't and we've seen this story by the way at salesforce just happened yesterday where the CEO. Kevin Block didn't work out so could another Kevin in this case Kevin Mayor Ultimate step up? That's the person everybody expected was gonNA take the job to me. The big question mark this morning is if you are Kevin May or running Disney. Plus are you staying in this job because you thought potentially that you were getting the top job to me.

Bob Iger steps down as CEO of Disney

"There's news today that Bob Eiger is stepping down immediately as CEO of the Walt Disney company to make room for his successor and that is Bob JPEG who runs Disney's theme parks division last year Argo announced that he would step down when his contract expires at the end of twenty 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 is the west coast bureau chief of 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 of the timing right now it's tough to tell exactly why what why the sudden change after all these years about what you're saying he was gonna leave it at night and then on saying he was gonna leave and delaying he delayed his retirement numerous times over the past decade and he's you know less than a year and a half into it his latest three year contract so it's kind of surprising in its day but on the other hand like it's very I gear to sort of do it do it all in secret and then all of a sudden announced to the world and in an unexpected way so his successor Bob che 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 certainly our or other people like I think the biggest contender currently at Disney's Kevin Mayer who's running their new screening effort you know that's led by Disney plus he's piece insert top strategy except for the company for a long time you know with Kate Kate back amongst the current crop of executives that is a bit of a safe choice right he's running he's running sort of the traditional businesses like theme parks obviously business most associated with Disney as opposed to remaining which is certainly the future of Disney and you know by all accounts he pick is a very smart guy and a very competent guy but certainly is not so different sort of had like the the Christmas season as much of the house of a great public speaker of this you know Bob Iger's let's talk a little bit about what Bob Iger has done at the Walt Disney company I'm gonna name before deals Pixar's seven point four billion Marvel for billion Lucasfilm for billion and last year the Whopper 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 really mean highway I think anybody would have to say is sort of the most successful and tightly run major entertainment company in in America today because he's very focused on franchises they were ahead of the rest of Hollywood and it pops into their business on franchises as you said a lot of that to acquisitions of Pixar and Marvel and Star Wars and franchises are busy sort of at the heart of the movie business these days in an auger was somewhat ahead of the curve in realizing you can just keep selling something Netflix is that Disney would have to launch its own streaming service to compete just like Disney plus is already out there and it's you know is is certainly ahead of what we're seeing from his competitors like HBO maxim peacock which are still to come I think I think later this year so you have to say he's always been for media executive pretty ahead of the curve and and been a leader is not just Disney plus as part of the fox deal they got a portion of who lived in they bought out the rest of the portion of Hulu from Comcast so what does Disney focused on now in terms of taking on Netflix with streaming they have Disney plus they have who is that where a lot of their money and attention is going right now absolutely I mean the future of Disney as an intern came distributor is Disney plus Hulu and ESPN plus right those are it's three major streaming services and traditional TV businesses being shrunk rapidly that's for Disney's putting all its efforts and a lot of films such as going there as well so that if that is the future of Disney but yet the one business they have it certainly not shrinking is the one that's cheapest and overseeing which is part of the consumer products right while all traditional entertainment is being disrupted people still love to go to theme parks and Disney theme parks are more successful than ever these days I want to buy the toys as well so that's sort of the more traditional side of the business that is not being transformed by digital technology I think you can make the argument that theme parks have what's known in business as a wide moat there 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 pressure so what is that business look like going forward and what does it tell us about how Disney values theme parks that Bob Chapek will be running the whole company well listen I think in the short run it's 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 I hope we do get the fire under control I think everybody within these businesses will continue to be successful if they have been and you know popped out to tech has by all accounts and done a very good job running those businesses and he generated a lot of profit for the people to the company if that's that you set up for a lot of the revenue and profits comments you know streaming is the future of streaming is a money losing business for now and I think you know with disappointment Disney's kind of saying yes stream is important part of our future but Disney is still a company that that it that it's hard to it's about the experiences people have in our theme parks Bob I will leave a great track record I think the Disney company is a very impressive guy in person a 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 you know as 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 you know very politically active Democrat I would not be surprised if he's hoping that you know if the next president is a Democrat that he might you know have some kind of a role in it in an administration I think that's something he would probably love to do it with fifteen profile very well well I'm gonna assume he's not jumping in this year it feels like we really don't need another billionaire and the rice then Fred's is the west coast bureau chief for the

Disney Plus reaches nearly 29 million subscribers in 3 months

"On the Disney plus streaming service reaching nearly twenty nine million paid subscribers in less than three months that is impressive for what Disney is positioned as its future as more people drop their cable subscriptions CEO Bob Iger telling CNBC more content is on the way of course it's content like the Mandalorian that drove those subscriptions by the way about fifty percent of our subscribers came direct from you know our own website a lot of that had to do with the fact they signed up early before was available for other services Verizon about twenty percent came through that that agreement that distribution which has been great for us and then the rest came from apple and roku and all the other services that are distributing the app so here flagship show the Mandalorian it which has been entirely released through a lot of attention but did you see turn after the show was over and you expect to have to invest a lot more original content to help dry even more people to the platform well we were actually heartened by the fact that after the original episodes of Mandalorian were all made available we really didn't see significant churn from that as I said earlier we continue to see subscriber growth from the end of the year December twenty eighth through yesterday will say more about that one of the things that we've noticed is quite interesting is about sixty five percent of the people that actually watch Mandalorian washing least ten or more other things on the service and so what we're seeing in terms of consumption is consumption really across the board for films valley films from our library but recently released films from being including a Latin and and lying king of course Toy Story just come on came on Avengers and game but we're also seeing a lot of interest and other original programs that we've created movies and series great interest in Disney Channel shows and then brought interest and just a lot of other things Pixar shorts and older Disney shorts and clearly those brands Disney and Pixar and Marvel and Star Wars and National Geographic a resonating which will as we said at the beginning gives us the ability to focus more on quality high quality branded content for the service and less on volume we will continue to add we've got a lot coming up Disney plus launching in November to compete with online video services like Netflix and and they just continue to rise and continue to add subscriptions E. heard Bob weir talk about the number of subscriptions coming from the website of course Verizon customers have a year of free Disney plus of course we're paying for it through our bills and talking about myself as well but it should be noted Bob Eiger they're talking about the new content Amanda Laurie in season two will come out next year when all of the subscriptions or at the free ones if you will are about to expire so there's a little bit of strategy on there and Disney for its part with all of this content and everything else can afford much more to keep its prices low then Netflix etcetera so that that's something to watch as

Prince Harry pitched Meghan's voiceover work to Disney CEO at 'The Lion King' premiere

"Talk about more Megan markle really. There's more my God. I did thirty minutes the other day. Oh boy there's way more of course and I'm sure they'll be even more. This is like an ongoing big story. All right as we spoke about and I mentioned I think. And and it's obvious one of the big motivators for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to make this shift in their royal life. Life is for money and to allow Meghan Markle to work and she's already got a job. You know what the rules of the crown there established for a reason and or multiple reasons queen. Elizabeth is a lot older older than prince. Harry like decades upon decades. She's seen it all and she knows how things work. Very and Megan have really opened up. The most massive acid can of worms because now everything that they do actually is gonNA come under greater scrutiny for for example doc over the holidays and actually still. They've spent time in Vancouver Island at the home of some really rich rich Russian person and they have refused to reveal the name of whom that is their new role. They want to take part in there not abdicating. They don't want to abdicate. They still want to keep their titles and they still want to be a part of the royal family. They still claim to want to go on engagements for Queen Elizabeth and represent her in the UK and abroad so I would think that they should still will be transparent right so right now. They're not even living up to what they say they want to do. They're not being transparent. They were flat out asked by the media to maim aim that rich Russian person and they refused so time that into what I was starting with. Meghan markle just got a gig with Disney. She signed in some kind of voiceover deal going to do some some voice over project with them in exchange for a donation to charity however however as soon as I heard that the biggest red bulb but that the expression red bulb is that is that a that mashing mall. Whatever it doesn't matter we know what you know what I mean right? The biggest the biggest light bubble the the biggest warning or whatever went off in my brain. I'm like let me break it down for you all yes Disney's Disney's GonNa make a donation to the elephant charity and they're GonNa pay her DA. It's like pay me but I come with strings. I'm not going to search for free. You pay me but you also have to give a big donation to this charity. And if that's the case if that's the case I think they need to be transparent as well right given how they are positioning their new role. I think they're still public. Figures like politicians and they need me to be transparent and if they don't and they're not and then if it does become public knowledge in the future because Disney is a public company. It will come to bite them in the but this is GonNa Backfire in so many ways. I cannot wait to see it all go down. I don't think it matters. They decided that they don't want to take the royal family money or money from the people there and they want to earn their own money and they're still doing a little bit of both. They're giving money and taking money at the same time. I'm not really sure the bites them. It sounds like they're being transparent. They're just not telling you everything as most people don't you don't tell us everything of how your money comes in nor do I I just think they wanna be more normal in that regard and yet they're still giving. They're also like a politician and if a politician straight up asked about something and then straight straight up refuses to answer that's not being transparent however they are being transparent because they're saying we're it's tit for tat. We are are not taking the money from the crown any longer but we are taking money from other people. We don't have to tell you. We'll continue to work for the crown. We just won't take their money. We'll just do it free when we want to do it. So they're just basically hired work while this also that does bring up other and this is why I I didn't even mention this last episode. This is why it is such a complicated issue. Because in America there are all sorts of rules around this. Can you see that with trump children. You know those that like like the Russian whomever or like Disney there could be undue influence and access us to the the the royal family to the crown to the Queen bought through Harry and Meghan. That's a stretch. It's not a stretch. It's it's it's absolutely Louis Accurate yeah but they're not Americans. I mean she's not filing taxes in America. She is not living here right is she. Thought they were GonNa live in Canada or something but she's still filing taxes in America she has to legally. She hasn't renounced her American citizenship. That's how being in America works. If you make money you have to report your money right. Yeah Yeah it's interesting. I also I saw this video. That was wild last year. What did that movie come out? I don't remember but whatever the Lion King movie came out Harry and Meghan went when the Lion King Premier in London and video just surfaced that a fan talk of prince like oh I got this is how successful people do shit and not even having to do with like being the one percent of the one percent which Prince Harry is but a lot of successful so people they just ask for things and your that successful when you're that privileged if you ask for things people don't want to tell you know so so at the Lion King Premier Prince. Harry had a conversation with the head guy at all Disney Bob Eiger and you could hear you're him say did you know she does voiceovers. He's like no. I didn't know that he's like you did it. No like he said it twice yes and then. He's like she'd love to do voiceovers servers like way before this is all announced they were already working on these things Ah I love it I love it. I love everything about it. I can't wait to see how this continues to play

However, he wanted and make a business of it. And that's how this program got started at the time. Bob Eiger was at a b c caps. He survived the cap cities. Merger and his star was golden. I, I remember at a couple of meetings with Bob Eiger involved about the possibility of TV show way way way way back in the early nineties, and even the set next joy dinner party at Barbara Walters house, and he was is always nice guy. And I, I understand why has Starr was golden at ABC now. He's, I mean he's still is essentially the president of ABC ABC now has become Disney, ESPN, and so forth. And he's he has an aged all he's a. He's he would be the if you wanted to put a picture of the quintessential CEO picture next to the definition, dictionary. Bob Eiger would be it. So Bob idir went out and the sad fact, let's grab the sound bite. Again, I think is it twenty four? This is what I said yesterday on the Reuters website.

Thanks for coming here and not making me come to Bristol which was the original plan. You're still welcome. I'm happy to come to this place. It's a slight do you live up near Bristol at this one. We relocated from Los Angeles to Westport Connecticut, which is kind of right in between Bristol in Manhattan. The Upper West side occasionally to exactly. But most of my time is in Bristol, which is about a hour drive. I think if you listen to this podcast, you know, that Jimmy recently took the job at ESPN, but let's explain how that happened. You'd been at Disney for a long time. This job came up. What about a year ago, fifteen months ago? Yeah. Fifteen months ago. Did you raise your hand right away and say, I want to be president VSBN. Absolutely. Yeah. How does that process work? So I'm lifetime sports fan. I have some history in the sports media business, I was over at Yahoo responsible for Yahoo sports at, you know, in two thousand six two thousand seven before I took on some other responsibility there. But my my goal was always to get back into the sports media industry. And I think in the first meeting I ever had with Bob Eiger. In two thousand ten we talked about. About, you know, the fact that the Walt Disney company, you know, of course, owned ESPN and that could be something down the line that I could move over to you. Initially went to Disney to run interactive. Correct it which at the time was one of five segments at the company broken out separately. And so, yeah, Bob, Bob hired me to go lead that group will run your digital group your interactive group. At one day, I wanna run ESPN you sort of flag that early wasn't. It wasn't. There was a conversation around, you know, the potential of me at some point moving over. I didn't give Bob and ultimate them say, you know, I'm gonna join I really wanted to join the Walt Disney company and wealth for Bob to be honest with you. I was I was quite happy at Yahoo. At the time. I taught a variety of sports news entertainment, and you know what I, I sat down with, Bob, you know, very quickly realizes is someone I wanted to work for. So, I was I was more than thrilled to have the opportunity over and lead, one of the segments, and there was well, there were multiple stories. I think I wrote one of them about you. You at one point when John skateboards running it, there was a thought that they would send you out there to sort of work under him, and, and sort of with the idea that you'd be sort of groomed eventually take over USPS. And basically, short version is skipper said, no, no, thanks so you, stay you stay in Burbank. You look over the years. I, I don't know that, that's probably a conversation that happened, if it did it all between John and Bob, I wasn't obviously privy to that conversation if it happened, but I will tell you that over the years Bob, and I had many conversations around, you know, me me, potentially moving over to USPS when I get my annual review review..

But he got a Bob from dizzy, and that is always tickled me that that's what it's like to be lebrons agent were Bob idir is Bob from Disney. That's the Brandman dog. Yeah. It's amazing. But rich has gotten himself in there. And I think if you pay attention mayor rich knows what he's doing. I mean there have been some contract situations. But I think he is handled like fairly masterfully the air Bledsoe situation in Phoenix. He wound up getting Tristan Thompson, his money in Cleveland, all of this business things that he's I I really feel like he's demonstrated that he's good at this. Lebron hired him because he's good. If this not simply because he you know, that's his man's. Lebron doesn't have an equity share in the agency like people looked into this. And apparently, he does not have an equity share in it. But it's hard to shake the idea that he's not the one in charge. We're Rich Paul because they got this other stuff. You know, they're all tied up it. So it gets tricky and people feel like this is like LeBron puppet. Master in this. And I think it's possible certainly that LeBron is in control of this in a certain way, my problem with the idea of LeBron tampering with Anthony, Dave. How stupid do you think? Anthony Davis is. And when I ask how stupid do you think Anthony Davis is what I'm asking? Is. You think Anthony Davis Dita Braun to tell him a you might wanna get out of New Orleans complete with me. Right. He did he needs somebody to tell him that. I recall them saying Anthony Davis. Hey, good grades in high school. Idea that, you know, this is going the way these things always go.

"This now is hollywood doing some soul searching you know as mr snerdley accurately pointed out yesterday hollywood media is a bunch of copycats but they don't want to copycat this that's why they're doing the soul searching they don't want to copycat they don't i guarantee you bob eiger is not running around l a's smiling and beaming with pride hey bob we love that show you got about that middle class bunch a hicks in illinois way they go bob this is this is not gonna get bob eiger and his wife all the favorable cocktail party chat bob what are you doing to us you bring that visa junk bank and it ends up winning we told you bob we told you can't do that you can't expose these people but the key that hollywood's gonna look at here more than likely they're going to look at this and they're going to see what they always say the dividing line in america is conservative versus liberal in their world they miss the class elitism even though they practice it even though they are cardcarrying members of ruling class upper class elite clubs and by virtue of their membership in these elite clubs they they condescend and look down upon anybody who's not an elite anybody who doesn't anybody who does live in the midwest upper or middle or lower it doesn't it doesn't matter but if roseanne if the tv show is not conserved in it isn't folks and i'm not trying to throw cold water on anything here so why did the roseanne show rate what's behind this what could it possibly be if i'm right and this has nothing to do with conservatism versus liberals in other words people didn't tune in because they heard there were some brand new conservative show and they wanna stick it to the lips and the conservatives feel sorta like reborn because now we finally got show of our own in prime time and we're going to support it we're going to let people know we watch it but that's not what happened the truth is something that the hollywood moguls and exects and other media titans are going to have an even bigger problem with this show in my humble expert opinion attracted.

"The yes network iraq yet which is the yankees channel and so that's something i guess what's interesting about that is know bob eiger sees that as a complement to espn by a lot of those regional sports networks just like e s p and you're not going to get the really premium sports the nfl games the really highprofile college football games in just like on those regional sports networks because of the contracts there have with cable operators they can't show the best game so you know it is a bad in the future i mean i think the best way to look at this is bob igirs thinking maybe five six seven years down the road when people are really not going to theater change potentially and really not signing up for cable he's got sort of this beachhead where he can say you know what i can go direct to consumer i can buy pa bypass the theaters bypass the cable operators in and so you you know content directly online to extend this force great consolidation as well in the sect whichever where whichever paul the business that you're looking at hand is going to be a lot of people here again that she we need to find someone to partner with now too that's right i mean i think that there's some of the thinking now is that if you're a smaller studio in hollywood you know if you want to compete you might have to find another studio to partner up with i mean even a universal studios which is one of the larger studios in hollywood meena some analysts are saying maybe they'll have to find a partner certainly there's studios like sony of a comes paramount pictures mgm there's other studios that are smaller some of them are independent and eat a thinking just is that.

"And fox business in 21st century fox and so on and then there's also robert eiger bob igor who's the longtime chairman and ceo of the walt disney company there had been a lot of speculation about how long bob eiger would stay at disney after having a tremendously successful run and now looks like he's going to stay for a lot longer that's right so bob eiger is is responsible for dizzy as we know it today and he's made some really big acquisitions in his time of course they're all dwarfed by this fox on but he's the man who brought in pixar he brought in marvel and he brought in lucasfilm which of course is why disney is as premiering start the latest star wars movie tonight so he's really focused the disney business on these franchises these you know where you just had this never ending a run of of movies of properties of merchandise tied to these brands in these really beloved characters and so he he's really he is created the current company um and it's been a little bit hard to figure out who is going to succeed him he is now extended his contract with disney for a fourth time before today's deal he was supposed to have left in 2019 he is now going to stay on through 2021 to help oversee the integration of fox and in the meantime over the years there's been various people within disney who has been who've been seen a successors to agar on they've left at various times and so now the question is what happens after 2021 and one possibility could be that james murdoch whose rupert murdoch's younger son may may join.
