We’ve heard quite a few statements about the future of Disney ever since CEO Bob Iger took over in 2022.
Iger has made some major changes to the structure of the company and announced updates to help get Disney back on track financially. But during a recent interview, Iger answered some of the most pressing questions that fans currently have.
Yahoo reports that during the New York Times Dealbook Conference, Iger was interviewed on a variety of topics. During that interview, Iger shared that he will “definitely” be stepping down as the company’s CEO when his current contract ends in 2026.
Another hot topic that Iger discussed? He announced that the ABC broadcast network owned by Disney is not for sale. There has been quite a bit of speculation about whether or not the company would sell this particular asset to dig itself out of a financial hole, but now the CEO notes that this won’t be the case.
On top of those announcements, Iger talked a little about the process for choosing his successor as Disney CEO. Iger described this task as “robust” currently.
Disney CEO Bob Iger says succession process is "robust" right now.

With three more years of Iger left, we expect more announcements and changes from Disney. Since Iger took back the reigns of the company, we’ve seen him undo many of his predecessor, Bob Chapek’s, decisions. We’ll be interested to see what comes next.
