Is Netflix Disney’s next big buy and is Reed Hastings its next CEO?
Here’s one more tantalizing strategic reason for Disney to do the Netflix deal. Reed Hastings. Disney CEO Bob Iger is set to retire in 2018 (and already has postponed that move more than once). So, all eyes in the media and entertainment world closely follow the Happiest-Place-on-Earth’s succession plan. It’s no secret that Disney’s board has been in search mode for quite some time, but with no clarity in sight. Hastings – Media 2.0’s CEO poster child – could step into that role and complete Disney’s Media 2.0 transformation. – Peter Csathy, TechCrunch http://ift.tt/2fpDIav
