The possibility of Disney buying out 21st Century Fox is slowly becoming more of a reality. This would result in the company owning the likes of Fox’s regional television networks and movie studios. A recent report by CNBC stated that Disney CEO Bob Iger would remain at the company for an extra two to three years following the purchase.
This makes sense given Iger’s time as a Disney CEO. Since he was given the position in 2005, he has overseen the company’s purchases of Pixar, Marvel, and Lucasfilm. So if the purchase does go through, this would not be his first time overseeing the purchase of a major entertainment company such as Fox.
Although the deal has not been finalized, both Disney and Fox are in its final stages. Therefore, it would be plausible if Iger stayed at Disney after the Fox purchase. If this purchase were to go through, Fox would still have control over its news and business news divisions but would lose its film and television divisions.
