And it's fifty one percent owned by Chinese nationals. Now, a new tiktok global would mirror those ownership stakes. So bike dance selling anything more than about ten percent to Oracle would make the company majority US owned now is expected to by about twenty percent of this new company tiktok global. Now, the sale of an additional stake to Walmart would further increase US ownership over that fifty percent mark multiple sources telling me that tiktok global plans to file for an IPO on one of the US stock exchanges in about a year that would again further dilute Chinese ownership and sources. Tell me that Walmart would get a seat on the. Board the board would be subject to US government approvals. I'm told by a source close to the situation and the CEO and C. Suite would be American. Now, this comes as the companies, of course, looking for a permanent CEO replace Kevin Mayor The New York Times reporting that among those that Tiktok has talked to Kevin System instagram's founder and former CEO? We are awaiting word from the president on this the deadline he said on the deal is this coming Sunday for the fact that over fifty percent of the corporate ownership would be us-based seems very much key Melissa to approval of this deal. All right. Julia thank you, Julie. Boston. Karen I wonder what your take is the the notion Kevin System. The head of this new entity tiktok global be even more of a challenge it seems to facebook. Yes I mean. There's it's an interesting little side. I guess I what you would call it but it could be more of a challenge that's right and I was sort of thinking that what the deal was going to be. I'm not even clear what it is I don't know if anyone's got clear what it is would actually be an opportunity for facebook but. I don't know what to make of that. I. Don't know who actually if he will ultimately be the head of it but I think that to me with the skin in the game that I guess I have is Walmart, which is interesting. I'm not I don't understand what they're paying. We don't really know that but I do think this is an opportunity for Walmart to continue their evolution to take on Amazon and I think compete with them is on. Dan. What's your take? I. Think Karen kind of nailed. It really is about price for Oracle from Walmart and what they're getting for it. We have no idea. No one's even talked about. Any of that is far as the concern of our government I didn't really think ownership was the big issue I thought it was really about the data and where that data is going and how it's protected So to me, this story keeps changing. I would not be surprised that if we have some sort of announcement like this, the investors here. In the US the private investors are happy Oracle's to get a cloud contract. Walmart's happy to invest in this sort of thing, and then in two thousand and twenty one, we're talking about a totally nother different thing because as far as bite dances concern, they don't have to shutdown tick tock you as they can continue to grow the value of this asset and they have some important us partners to me. It sounds like a great deal for by dance I would think is the most important extrapolation of this story. Since you mentioned Kevin System, you're talking about the card there, and if memory serves mel and you know about my memory I, think, Kevin System was on the Walmart. Board for about five years. So it's really interesting stuff going on here and I think again on the margins I, think this is encouraging for Walmart Dan and I went back and forth on Oracle the other day I. Still Think Oracle's huge double top here at sixty but I think tim. Karen and Dan would agree that marts in in the getting the revaluation Tim's talk about for while and I think at one, thirty, six Walmart out of all these names just mentioned this the play, a lot of cooks though in this mix now tim to mix my metaphor. We don't know what Walmart's went to get out of this and so should we impute the same value add to Walmart as we did before when we thought it was Microsoft Walmart. No but I think, Walmart shareholders are already back to square zero I think the technology transfers Walmart is proven has been affected for them and other acquisitions that that is something that I think is what they're getting back to tick tock global I don't even know what that is. and. Again I I especially when we've struggled understand WHO CONTROLS THE AL go? That's still in question so I think this is good for Walmart it does matter what price but I think Doug Macmillan on a board seat of whatever this is continues and effort. Walmart. That's positive. We're just getting started here in twenty..

"Walmart and Microsoft Dj I definitely think you're onto something where you could use Tiktok as an advertising platform for Microsoft devices. It's still won't make Microsoft. Cool but I like the idea in fact I think this is the beginning of the new Walmart. They've already made it no secret that they. have a single target in their site and it's Amazon this makes me personally a much bigger advocate of a Microsoft purchase like you said, the risk would be diversified among the two companies and Tiktok would have a solid lifeline I'm still bearish in Tik toks long-term viability because I just don't know how sticky Tiktok is like I said in earlier shows tiktok is only one. APP. Update away from irrelevance facebook, Google and twitter could copy. The APP instantly make Tiktok a distant memory. Google already has a music partnership with the labels. So that's one less hurdle to deal with if Google has to take on tick Tock facebook and twitter on the other hand could sign similar deals with the music labels and bring tick tock functionality. In fact, twitter could revive line and add the music feature and they're back in business. The hard part would be attracting a younger audience and. Keeping them I personally never understood why Kevin Mayor became? TIK toks CEO he was warned and warned again to not get involved with this company in fact, Jason Kelly Kansas Silicon Valley mogul put it best. When he said don't work for a Communist Company, I'm sure when tiktok approached Kevin it went something like this Kevin Were GonNa go to IPO in you're gonNA make millions and millions instead Kevin resigned after one hundred days. Kevin is. Having a bad year I. He was not offered the CEO role of Disney where he led the direct to consumer market as well as the international market. He then gets the job at TIKTOK. He gets caught up in a unwinnable war with three countries. Think about this DJ TIKTOK is at war with India USA. An China maybe Kevin just had enough or maybe there is something else going on behind the scenes was Kevin fired. By China because of the Bite dance owner, which is tick tiktok parent company was Bite dance disgusted with Kevin's ability to shut down this force acquisition word on the street is that Kevin wasn't included as part of this new package when Tiktok is being shopped around it's quite the story and I can't wait for books to be written about this continually fascinating tale but there's one more thing dj the plot thickens on Friday night China's. Ministry of Commerce released an updated Export Control List. Including personalized content recommendations based on data analysis and several other.

Walmart Joins Microsoft In A Bid To Buy TikTok

"Lots of TIKTOK news to report I up. It looks like Walmart is joining up with Microsoft in its bid by talks US operations while it might seem like an unlikely pairing. Both companies actually have some shared interests namely competing with Amazon Microsoft has gone head to head with Amazon Web Services on cloud computing and Walmart competes with it on retail reporter Sara Nassauer with more. So Walmart has been trying now for for well to build their own advertising business, meaning the advertisers pay them to put their products at Walmart Dot com and other platforms. The reason for that is because it's a way to have more profitable revenue than just selling stuff and supercenters. Meanwhile, Amazon has ways beyond retail. Selling advertising as well as AWS, which is cloud computing. To to be profitable, and that allows Amazon to like have this bucket of profitable revenue from other things that allows them to offer really fast shipping and look millions of products sometimes at a loss, you know in a less profitable way. So Walmart for years now has been seen the writing on the wall. So I see this is then say now we're really serious about building an advertising business where people are going to pay US advertise and we want a stake in tiktok potentially to to do that. Tick. Tock has been on a deadline to sell its US operations or else face a potential banned from the trump administration among other concerns. US officials worry that Beijing, could require the Chinese owned company to share Americans. Data Tiktok has said it would never do that. In any case, it looks like some of the political pressure spooked CEO Kevin Mayor who said yesterday he'd be leaving Tiktok after only three months on the job in a letter to staff mayor said, the political environment had changed drastically in that time and that the role of CEO would look very different on the other side of any sale.

"Details straight ahead plus shares of gap surging in the after session on earnings the company's call is just kicking off. WE'LL BRING ALL The headlines, and later beyond meat goes beyond the grocery store. We'll tell you about the consumer play that got shares of the fake meat maker sizzling today but we start off but the TIKTOK twist Walmart with Microsoft in a bid for the popular social media both stocks rallying to new all-time highs today on this news let's get straight to Julie abortions got all the details Julia. Well Melissa the news keeps coming on this one Reuters just reporting that China's bite dance told Tick Tock engineers this week to make contingency plans. Indeed to shut down its US operations, take talk confirming to us just now that they are preparing for various scenarios including the potential of four shutdown telling US quote we are simultaneously developing plans to try to ensure that our US employees continued to get paid in any outcome. Now, this comes on the heels of Walmart confirming that it's teaming up with Microsoft to bid for. TIKTOK, as the government forces a sale by talks. Chinese parent by dance while Mart. Telling US quote we believe a potential relationship with TIKTOK US in partnership with Microsoft could add this functionality in provide Walmart with an important way for us to reach and serve Omni channel customers as well as grow our third party marketplace in advertising businesses. Wedbush Dan is telling us that Walmart partnered with Microsoft. Likely. Seals the deal he tells us quote we believe Microsoft buying TIKTOK would be like. Christmas morning coming early investors especially at evaluation in the thirty five billion to forty billion dollar range or lower depending on negotiations, which in a few years of navigated the right way could reach evaluation in the two hundred billion dollar area code Kevin Mayor announcing his resignation as the of Tiktok. Last night indicating that a deal could be imminent source tells me that one reason that mayor that he resigned now is that he? was excluded from the senior level most senior deal talks. With Bhai Dancy does aiming leading talks of Microsoft and General Atlantic's Bill Ford leading the talks with Oracle sources, Tommy that mayor did not want to run a division and Microsoft. He'd have preferred the greater authority heat of had if an investor group had bought out the company from by Dan's Melissa Julia. Thank you, Julia. Boorstin. So we look at this news and you think Tim Thought rerating for Walmart. Walmart has been on a path to some type of an ECOMMERCE or a tech platform multiple S- probably since they went out and bought jet. Flip, cart, the discussion of Walmart plus what that means in terms of taking on the multichannel going toe to toe n e commerce we with Amazon the you throw this in there and the ability to meet not only a younger demographic, but obviously, their ability to then channel generate advertising revenues. This is part of a world where we are rerating companies in valuing companies based upon hybrid multiples. Why Not Walmart and why not a company that generates fifteen billion dollars a year in free cash flow I. Think this is huge news and I think Walmart's gone higher. There's not a lot of analysts knows out yet on this potential deal, but one analyst from. Karen, caught my eye and that is the notion that if Walmart is now trying to switch from a transaction based model to a subscription based model with its prime competitive offering than the value of a captive audience, which tiktok would provide all of a sudden goes up for player like Walmart and that's why perhaps the deal makes a whole lot of sense. That could be one reason but I think even without that said, maybe that's maybe that's a wealthier of a Walmart customer either way it's good I think that the I just went back and looked at Goldman Sachs piece on some of the parts for Amazon. So obviously, we know aws much higher margin growing rapidly taking that out of the equation and looking it. Amazon's. The rest of Amazon's business, it trades they were giving it a three and a half times sales multiple. Walmart doesn't even trade at one time sales not even one. So they can narrow this gap in any way at all I mean I think we could see very substantial upside for Walmart and I gotTa give this management team credit. They have been slowly methodically changing the business and it is definitely not your father's Walmart anymore. So long I like it. I think that the only risk of buying a day like today is what if Microsoft doesn't end up getting it? In the stock will be down tomorrow but if they do I, think there's more upside in the short-term and the longer term here. What I thought was kind of unusual Alex Sherman of CNBC dot com broke this news on CNBC DOT COM Walmart, actually came out and confirmed it, and I thought that was sort of a maybe a good sign guy that this deal was progressing was moving along that they are confident enough to say instead of saying no comment on on rumors. That we will comment on it in fact. It isn't courage. Good for Karen and Tim by the way in a lot of people love this name I thought valuations been a concern but to Tim's point about rerating, you think about it. Walmart has gone down this avenue in terms of media before with varying degrees of success. But this makes a lot makes a lot of sense in terms of shuffle ads, interactive commercials, those types of things I mean everything you saw in the New York Times article today makes a lot of sense that you have to ask yourself. What's the right multiple on the six dollars earnings ish they're gonNA make. Next year and I think analysts is GonNa start to crunch the numbers and you're going to start seeing people probably with one hundred and eighty to two hundred dollars price targets on this name I. Think the Tim's point. So kudos to the people that have been steadfast in this name and you know, Kudos to Walmart which accounts point is absolutely pushing the envelope. It is no longer your grandfather's W. Get, Cairns. Argument..

TikTok CEO resigns amid U.S. pressure to sell popular app

"Has resigned. Kevin Mayor led the company for just three months. During that time, the Trump Administration had put a lot of pressure on the video sharing APP to cut ties with its owner in China. NPR's Bobby Allen reports. President Trump has issued two executive orders aimed at banning TIC TAC or forcing the APP to be purchased by an American company and talks are ongoing companies, including Microsoft and softwaremaker Oracle are discussing a possible acquisition. But now TIC Tac's chief executive, Kevin Mayor says he is quitting. In a letter to employees reviewed by NPR mayor said quote the political environment has sharply changed, He says he's thought about what the next phase of Tic Tac is going to look like, and it's not going to include him. He didn't say why. Beyond, citing upcoming structural changes to the company. Back in May, Tic Tac's US general manager, Vanessa Pappas, told NPR what she thought mayor would bring to Tic Tac after his time as a top streaming executive at Disney. Personally, I'm very excited to see Kevin Mayor joined. I think he brings the right level of global expertise to really guide our expansion. Now Pepe's herself will take the reins from mayor and it's during a moment the company itself describes as an existential crisis. The Trump Administration and TIC Tac are now locked in a legal battle over whether the White House can outright ban the app in the US over unproven fears that Chinese authorities can access Americans data. And Trump signed another order directing tick talk to sell off its U. S assets to an American company, citing unspecified national security concerns. In May. Pappas said the fears about it's Chinese parent company by dance, cooperating with the Chinese Communist Party are unfounded. From our U. S operations we manage and I personally oversee all of our content, moderation and operations and from a data perspective, we don't store any of our user data in China. We started in At the U. S and Singapore. In his letter, Mayor says tic tac employees and users should not be significantly affected by any structural reorganisation, and he suggested ownership issues will be resolved soon. Meanwhile, the millions of American teens making dance challenge and communiqu skit videos do not seem to be paying much attention. Bobby Allen. NPR NEWS SAN Francisco The president is

Wall, Street. Journal reports that by chance considering changing its corporate structure, possibly forming a separate board and headquarters for tiktok outside of China Tuxedo. Kevin Mayor who is also the parent company CEO has his office in Santa Monica California the USA. TIKTOK also says it doesn't store any data in. China has never been asked by China for any data and would refuse such a request. It got one. Took was musically musically was a Shanghai company, but it had offices in Santa Monica, because it wanted to to be able to reach out to record companies in the United States, and so it was very us focused bite dances. APP was they have towel and a few other things, but that was their version of Tiktok so when by but musically? And then they may Tiktok. They had tiktok in the rest of the world. And do you instill in China so? It would be easy enough for them to say well. We've got our CEO of tiktok in Santa Monica. Let's just make Santa Monica. The headquarters I'm not saying they would make Santa Monica. They can pick anywhere in the US, but he's already there right, so you make that your headquarters. You are already a Cayman Islands Company so you reorganized tic TAC is a wholly owned subsidiary that is now outside of Chinese control. Just arrest all of these concerns about China. China having influence, this is something tiktok to say a while way definitely cannot even if you do that though you are not addressing why Amazon asked their employees to delete it from any phone, because it doesn't. You don't have to be spying for the Chinese government to be spying, and there has been a lot of concern about how Tiktok uses data, just for itself just for advertising, and the fact that we talked previously on about how they were checking your clipboard, and over, and over which they was for spam mitigation, but was a pretty old, fashioned and clunky way. To do spam mitigation so? Elissa I'm particularly curious what you think of Tiktok. So. Yeah, I'd I'm sure some of you have seen the the threat that was on reddit about this and research..

"kevin mayor" Discussed on The Information's 411

"We you got a bit of really interesting executive movement this week where You have this name. I'm not a close follower of of Disney and Tiktok but I certainly knew the name Kevin Maher particularly because he was someone who everyone talked about being passed over for the Disney CEO role And it turns out. He's leaving Disney. What what what's the news? What happens yeah talk about a bolt out of the blue so yet earlier? This Week You know it came out through very carefully managed process by the company that Kevin Mayor who is the head of Disney streaming division is going to be taking on the role of US CEO of Tiktok and also CEO of which is the parent company that owns Tiktok and Kevin. Mayor is a longtime Disney. Employees has been there since actually the early ninety S. I was looking up his his resume the other day. So yeah I mean look. Disney has a a a lot of people who are lifers at the company. Just folks who live and breathe the mouse. And and Kevin's definitely one of them and he like you mentioned was someone who people saw as a real potential to be near the Bob. Iger replacement you know. He was kind of the muscle and brains a behind the Disney Disney's deal strategy which has really been like the company's engine over the last decade or so. They have bought Pixar they bought marvel they bought Lucasfilm and then they also brought bought assets major asset of Twentieth twenty-first Century Fox and Kevin was. It depends on who you talk to at the company but certainly no one's that he was a key player. Some will say maybe Bob Eiger was really the the shepherd behind it but regardless he was the Disney Deals Guy and win the company kind of reoriented around streaming when they announced Disney plus Kevin was named as the leader of this initiative. You know and they kind of created this whole segment of the company around him which is predominantly to lead Disney's new era and streaming but this kind of folded other businesses underneath it. I mean to me that has been like the keys project bet that Disney has been making over the past few years and it seems like it's been somewhat. They've what they wanted out of it. I mean look they. They announced Disney. Plus you know. In a very savvy press events an investor event last March so march of two thousand nineteen and they put out what they thought the subscriber projections. We're going to be in five years. The low end of that was sixty million. Well last May serve a couple of weeks ago when they had their earnings call. They said they're already fifty. Four and a half million subscribers to Disney plus so I mean they are now obviously. There's a lot of expectation managing that goes into these things but for them to hit. What was some people thought an aggressive five target in less than a year? Yeah they've knocked out of the park for right right with Hamilton. The probably going to get most of the English speaking world so okay. So what guy leaving? He's leaving the Disney kill holding onto. Kevin Mayor Rookies a lifer and had been leading the initiative. That's proven successful. So because he wanted something more much like America at the turn of the can't make a Hamilton reference. There probably could Kevin Mayor wanted. Look I can't speak to what he wanted. But there was very much an expectation inside the company that he was the leading candidate to get this job mostly because of how successful his tenure has been but didn't job. Yeah Bob Eiger sorry by is stepping down. Finally after many false attempts to do that at the end of next year and in February there was kind of another kind of surprise abrupt announcement that he named Bob Peck. Who is the head of parks and resorts to be his his immediate? To immediately named as CEO Bob Iger was stepping into this executive chairman role. And the whole thing was not handled particularly well you know. I and others have reported that Basically Kevin. Mayor was informed of this wall in the middle of a meeting over at Hulu. He did not have that much advance announcement. Disney was certainly trying to avoid any kind of leaks but there are people who say that the way that was handled kind of left a bad taste in his mouth but also you know people. Are I mean if you kind of start to see your success and maybe start to believe the hype you maybe think I really do? This was supposed to be my job now to be clear. Kevin Mayor has said in interviews and other outlets that he only took this. Tiktok job or left Disney. Because this was just an incredible amazing opportunity that you know. He couldn't he couldn't bear pass up also Disney pluses and such a great place that he felt comfortable stepping away from the company. While in this position so believe what you turn doing through great. They didn't anymore So what does need for Disney streaming going forward though? I mean it's still obviously closely watched in both attack an media. World's you reported a little bit this week on sort of what happened next to it right. Yeah well so the interesting thing to me and this is really you know. Kind of inside baseball for Disney. Is that? They immediately reorganized his unit so beyond just streaming Disney plus. Espn pleasant Hulu which existed under this group. He also had control of the Advertising Team. They reported up into him. And then also the cable business which is like. Espn the business of getting comcast and Cox to give Disney money for carrying all of those Disney owned channels. All of that reported up into him which people thought was kind of beyond the scope of what a streaming division really should be doing and so for reasons that will be interesting to watch playing out. They immediately moved those over to the TV networks and You know it's debatable. As to what the actual impact of this will be. But you know there are people who have said in the past the TV networks. Were really annoyed by the fact that they didn't have a central part of their business basically the advertising that appears next to their programs reporting up into them. And you know some people saw it kind of Kevin Mayors empire-building within the company to sort of control a huge amount of revenue to be clear we report in the story that this was not Kevin's decision to report into him. That this came from the board and and Bob Eiger himself but anyway that's sort of the nature of disagreement but it is noteworthy that immediately upon his leaving. They kind of dismantled parts of his division. I don't know if it's going to be a major problem for things that release just kind of line of reporting chains right now but it's definitely worth watching. What was the smart story? You always gotta do the unwinding of the Empire Story after the executive leads round. It's it's very experienced. It was okay so less. What is protect The it's You have this new. You know really high profile American executive coming into a company with That is sort of still a bit of a mystery to the rest of the tech world. Because you know the power of the somebody based in China but it's profile has grown substantially. It's APP downloads. Are are are growing rapidly. But it's also under these pretty you know intense regulatory pressures Zito in a moment where U s China relations aren't particularly strong so Yeah like how did you read this from a tick box back? There was a smart higher. It's fascinating I mean that to me is going to be one of the most compelling stories intact to watch play out over the next couple of years because it is such a hotbed of regulatory issues. Tiktok is such an interesting company. That is really. I mean maybe folks at the Hong Kong Bureau would disagree with me on this but I think it's one of the only Chinese companies. Have a true breakout hit in the US and obviously their political tensions between the US and China over a number of things but as a sense of how much of a hot seat job. This is hours after Kevin was announced as the CEO of Tiktok Holly. This kind of prominent Republican tech critic tweeted out like I'll see you and Senate sir. Yeah I mean it's just like we're going to you in your whole team up in front of a Senate panel to probably berate you with questions about China and whether this is spy APP and all kinds of unrelated things that Kevin has basically jumped right into and there's all kinds of fascinating things that Kevin is. Someone who is you know made his bones as a salesperson at Disney. He never really dealt with the political concerns that Disney had which Disney has had many. I mean they have huge business in China But that wasn't ever Kevin's purview. That was much more. The purview of Bob Eiger or even Bob Peck as head of Parks Disneyland. Shanghai Disneyland is a huge business for them so these are all the things that he is not as experienced in that he will have to step into in the next. You KNOW COUPLE MONTHS IN YEARS. as he he's in this job well chantel teams like It might be the right person for the job but also you know some of the key things he might need to do. Arnold directly hit skillset. But I will say to you know to his credit. He is someone who is a gain skills as he's been at Disney and there are a lot of people who were thinking. This guy had no business being the head of streaming division having never let large groups of people you'd always have kind of a tiny strategic strategic planning group within the company but ended up with thousands of employees and was successful in getting this thing off so. I'm sure he enjoys the challenge. This is a different challenge. This is this is intense right. Yeah well we have challenge of Memorial Day weekend while sheltering in place. Yeah no see we. All we all face different things to overcome Any any streaming picks by the way corey to to close at this podcast. Anything you recommend people to be over the long weekend. I just watched Who Lose Mrs America With Kate Blanchett As Phyllis Schlafly Sort of a a dramatized version of the Of the feminist movement in the sixties seventies apparently Gloria Steinem said in an interview this week that it was unrealistic. So take that for what you will pretty good job. It was from one of the producers of Madman pretty good. That's pretty good. I can throw out there another Hulu series. We should probably dedicated an episode to this later. Devs I just finished it. Look there their issues. We should all discuss it at a later date but it definitely was interesting one of the more interesting things I've seen in some time. Have you written about the Fx who partnership with those two shows trump? So yeah it made for very Made for a very bizarre experienced trying to find devs within the APP because it's not contained within who originals it's contained within the fx on.

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. We're going to see some BAYONA merchandise and other high not gonNA sell

"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. Those are the issues that are being talked about around. The water

"One of the winners out at the Golden Globes. I do want to talk about the progress of Amazon and net flicks. We saw take home two awards for Roma. You know, a big deal for Netflix has as its first original movie winning and an award. What do you make of that? Look, I think content from wherever it comes today is is the answer. Net. Flicks is certainly spending enormous sums of money as Amazon and so the likelihood of them having more winners in the awards season. I think is to be expected there. You know in the proverbial throwing more of it against the wall. That much more of it has an opportunity to stick. I'm certainly not referring to the content as that on just using the analogy. And so I think you'll see more of that as opposed to less of that as the marketplace really doesn't care who the producer is. They care how good the content is. Does that mean that net? Flicks loses its edge in the future as more companies pull their content from net flicks and develop their own OTT services. Well, look. With Disney being a serious as they are in their mission. And with the FOX deal ready to close momentarily, obviously within the next few weeks is what the expectation is what what Disney is doing under the leadership. Kevin mayor. I think you can't underestimate that. And certainly Warner media with John stanky, Richard club. Learn the team Kevin Riley now moving over, you know, not moving over, but taking on additional responsibility. Relative to the over the top. Creative mix and let's not forget our friends in Philadelphia and thirty rock with Comcast NBC universal. I think the the field as crowded, but as in all crowded fields, the creams gonna rise and those who can create the best content and catch the attention of the viewers, and we'll talk about that for a moment in terms of catching the attention. I think that's who's going to win and they're all capable of spending enormous sums of money to create content. Not that money ensures good content. But as I said, the more you produce the more of it, you create the more you distribute, the higher likelihood of catching the attention of the audiences when I talk about capturing the attention of the audiences though. I think it's important to note the amount of money that is being spent on program promotion, we don't any longer and haven't for quite some time relied on lead in as as network television. Used to refer to it. You just have to drive up and down any of the main thoroughfares anywhere in certainly Los Angeles, New York, and and as well places all around the country and see the amount of money being spent in one sector, particularly out of home producing. I mean, promoting rather the content on Netflix, Hulu, and you know, the like so. The money's being spent to drive the eyeballs and the eyeball seem to be responding. The content is good. Now back to devices since you're at.

So who won't right from even though I asked him, no, that's that's called loyalty. I fear and it's a great story. Matthew ball who does our redecked publications.

And I just said to him like, listen, I'll give you a bunch of money and will come up with topics together and they need to be data oriented, but narratives about the media business and three years later to his credit. He was the head of strategy at Amazon video and now is about to do something else which is not announced yet. But as one of the great thinkers in the media business now, and you know, it's good that I can help him come up with a topic, but Matt's way smarter than me. So again, and we give this things away for free like the stuff you haven't haven't read these things. He's written these really, really deep inciteful pieces, particularly Netflix and HBO in the last few Disney as well and curation. And I'll tell you funny story about the Disney piece that he wrote a piece called Disney is this Aspen about three years ago, and I got a call from Kevin mayor at Disney and said, hey, Bob, I and I would lay subscription business doesn't know this question visits, but it is. Yeah, yeah. Well, not yet, but he says, we'd love to have lunch with you and I had known Kevin for a long time. So I so I have lunch with him in idir and I'm gonna paraphrase here, but we're having. Launch at Disney and says, you know, you're an idiot and, and I'm like, why is that Bob? And he goes, you give away for free what we pay tens of millions of dollars a year from management consultants for so thus came in the idea of a subscription pay wall. Okay. But he gave you that advice couple years ago? Yeah.

"Now you can tell me I'm wrong about that and I'd be interested in your answer, but I think barstool van talk would exist if Jimmy Petar was president as opposed to John skip or what are your thoughts there? I completely disagree. I see. I see. Jimmy is more being more risk averse. I think that he would have been, and by the way, remember something that the connection between Bristol and Burbank has never been stronger. I, I really believe that in in all the years, since nineteen ninety six there has not been. I mean, George Bodenheimer was of course loyal to Michael Eisner. But I think that Mike Elisa was busy running a big company, and even though he was very interested in ESPN, I don't think he paid much attention to it on a weekly basis, but say as Bob, I grew does now or is Kevin mayor does now. And so. So I think that what you have in Jimmy somebody who is going to be working hand-in-hand with Burbank to make sure that the next several years of ESPN is as profitable as possible. And so I think that I see him as being less risk verse. I think that you have a situation where in barstool where there was this kind of. You know wild element about the fact that they generate a content that was was different and at a different sensibility to it. And that's part of what the attraction was, but I think and skipper was in Burke Magnus. They were willing to take a chance on that, but I can't. I can't imagine Jimmy doing that. I, I really can't. You may be right. I appreciate your insight. I my guess is you are right? I defected. He's risk adverse strikes me that. I think you'd be right on that because that would. For a second because Richard verse in terms of anything that can potentially damage the brand or anything potentially drag the company into the kind of situation that they got into with barstool. And I think skipper who's you know people? The worst mistake people made about John skipper was they looked at many as these like nerdy glasses, and you know, he doesn't have. He keeps his hair very short and and he has got a, you know, Columbia graduate degree in literature. And so they thought that he was this buttoned up, kind of, you know, really, but he's not. He's he's he, he's not a radical, but he, as I said before, he's a disruptor. He likes to take chances. He likes to poke at places like the NFL. So I think that he was probably more willing to take on something with a barstool than you know, Jimmy would've. Come from, although in the NFC skipper killed it, but I, I understand your point and and I appreciate it wasn't about the killing. It was about doing it in the first place. I, I don't think it would have lasted one meeting with Jimmy. I Gotcha. Yeah. And I mean that that whole thing is kind of fasting in that there was there were executives at ESPN including Burke Magnus who were all for it who went down the line, negotiated with Eric and our Dini who basically got assurances. It was going to happen. And then obviously in the end, John skipper sort of steps in and kills it. And there's a larger discussion about how why? Why wasn't the president of the PIN informed about stuff prior to killing it? You know what's is part of my take sort of a sub brand of barstool and should've treated as such and not part of barstool longer conversations will will do that another time..

"Not stormy Daniels adult, but like you know, deadpool the Handmaid's tale, right? R. rated PG thirteen risky stuff. FOX searchlight. All those Oscar films that FOX searchlight has produced. Isn't that confusing? The consumer though shouldn't have one product. Maybe they have, you know, maybe they have, you know, Netflix manages to segment by genre. The kids I have the other stuff, they mix the content. I mean, wouldn't it be better up? Just they have the technology. So confusing blue becomes Disney flicks this in the piece in the Atlantic right? About Disney strategy. I say, you know, Kevin mayor their chief strategy and now chief of of streaming strategy has said, you know, we're all in on streaming. You're not all in all over the place. You have Netflix of Disney products. Ties supported ESPN two, three with ads and exactly you've a pay TV strategy you the pay plus strategy with like ESPN plus a family streaming strategy with Disney flicks. You have an adult shaming strategy with Hulu. I mean, this is not an all in strategy actually very, very confusing to figure out if you're thirty five year old forty five year old guy who likes who likes Oscar-winning entertainment, but also has kids. They're basically making up for two products, complete different interests. Netflix is not going to spin off Netflix plus the stuff we think might get any consideration. That would be very, very weird. I think, but Disney's essentially done that with their announcement for Hulu being an adult. I entertainment product. I don't think it makes sense. And my expectation is that in twelve months, they will realize the same there, Thomson author of hit makers and senior editor at the Atlantic. Thanks very much. Thank you.
