Disney's Bob Iger Gives LA NFL Stadium Project a Boost

Hosted by and

There are two competing bids for possible NFL stadiums in LA--one for the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders in Carson and the other for the St. Louis Rams in Inglewood. The Carson plan got a boost this week when Disney CEO (and football fan) Bob Iger agreed to be the non-executive chairman overseeing that project. If he were able to pull it off, it would be another coup in a successful career. Under Iger, Disney brought in Pixar, which also reinvigorated Disney Animation Studios. Disney also acquired Marvel and Lucasfilm under Iger's reign. Iger has pushed off retirement several times. Now, if he does indeed give up his CEO post in 2018 as planned, it looks like we know what is his next plan will be.
