Iger told CNBC On Thursday, he is set to potentially sell an equity stake in ESPN. Disney has controlling stake in ESPN since 1996, 17 years after the network’s launch.

Give Taylor Kitsch and Adrianne Palicki the lead roles as Tim and Tyra, who are grown up and married. Maybe ESPN can bring back the listicle show they did for their 25th anniversary as well? No matter how Iger envisions the future of ESPN, it’s markedly different from how the company is configured now.
