    Question Michael Eisner

    Does anyone have any idea about what's going to happen to M. Eisner? I know he's not CEO for Disney anymore (thank God), but is still part of the chair? I haven't been so caught up with that these days. If anyone can just give me some news about that, I would deeply appreciate it! Have a "magical" day!

    I think he was supposed to stay on in some way but chose to remove himself entirely but I may be making that up. I get confused in my head sometimes.

    Just relating this thread to the Walt's head thread. Maybe I am confused. It has happened before and will probably happen again. Chances are it will be in the near future.


    I was grading like a madwoman for my university class that I thought was meeting tonight but it is tomorrow. So I had to make sure that I am ready for my class tonight. Oh, well-brain function is optional at this point of the day.

    LOL! I give my final exam on Monday and I am done for the year. Except in December I get to take MY update classes. Oh, and the two days after Thanksgiving I get to take my Real Estate continuing education classes. And then the first two weeks of January I get to teach TPS to first year tax preparers. And then tax season starts in full earnest. Oh bother.....

    If you do have that article, that would be awesome if you could just summarize the main points. I was just curious about that man. He might've saved WDW, but still...anyway, thanks for everyone's responses!

    It wasnt a very long article.


    Eisner cuts las ties to Disney
    Eisner, who stepped down last week as cheif executive of the Walt Disney Co., has resigned his seat on the company's board of directors, Disney said Thurs.
    Eisner and the co have severed all ties in a surprise move that means he will not serve as a consultant as he had been entitled to do under his emplyment agreement
    Eisner "no longer provides any services" for Disney, the co said in a filing w/ the Securities and Exchange Commission
    Eisner resigned from the board Sept. 30 his last day as CEO, accordin to the filing. Disney's former president and chief operating officer, Robert Iger, succeeded Eisner the next day.
    Eisner who led the media and theme park co for 21 years had been expected to remain on the board until next spring when Disney will elect a new board.
    At one time, Eisner had hoped to continue a relationship w/ Disney, perhaps even as board chairman. BUt since Iger was named in March to succeed him, Eisner has stepped aside and allowed Iger to run the co even watching as Iger ended a 2-year feud w/ dissident ex-director Roy Disney who has pushed for Eisner's removal.

    Thanks, I guess. Like you said, I'll have to wait until the next podcast. Hopefully you'll add that to it, just to clear things up for me. But thanks, though.

    Why don't many people like Eisner. He did some major development of the World, such as Disney-MGM Studios, The resort explosion, Animal Kingdom, Typhoon Lagoon, Blizzard Beach, and all of Downtown Disney???? In addition he seemed to have passion for the original ideas behind the World.
