Steve Jobs to Go to Disney?

By Deane Barker on December 7, 2003

Jobs May Fill Seat at Disney: Eisner and Jobs — two egos that go great together. Eisner is under fire, and bringing a tech and creative legend like Jobs aboard may be enough to deflect some of the damage.

As far as the entertainment industry and Wall Street would be concerned, the most welcome second-in-charge and nominal successor to Eisner could be none other than Steven Paul Jobs – head of Apple Computer and Pixar, and the guy who currently has Disney over one massive barrel.

[…] sources out in the land of warmth say speculation that the Disney Co. would be forced to offer Jobs a position — if only a seat on the board — intensified this week, as soon as Roy Disney’s keister had cleared the company parking lot.
