New Disney CEO?

I'm curious as to what effect the stepping down of Eisner is going to have for the company as a whole. Personally I believe he's turned it into a giant empire which is *only* about making money and has totally drifted from what originally Disney stood for. (i.e. resignation of Disney family members from the board)

There have been a ton of rumors circulating about who is going to be the next CEO of Disney once Eisner steps down (which is either 2005 or 2006), and many websites are speculating that Steve Jobs would be the man that could turn things around. I believe this would be a great choice, as Jobs is the CEO of Apple Computer and Pixar, Disney would not have to reclaim a deal with Pixar, but rather work with them. Also, since Jobs' return to Apple six years ago, he has turned the company around... I think this would be a good thing for the rest of the company and turn it back more on what Walt Disney originally meant his company to be.

Mulletman, I'm with you on Jobs being a great candidate. Even the Roy Disney Jr. camp has rallied around Jobs -- with or without Jobs ever indicating he would be interested in the position.

BUT don't be too upset when June rolls around and the board names Bob Iger as the next Disney CEO. I'd hate to see it because I think he will neglect the parks in favor of his broadcasting stronghold but the fact that ABC is doing well again sort of ices Iger as the next Disney CEO.
