Steve Forbes: Jobs is the man for Disney

Steve Forbes, CEO of Forbes and Editor-in-Chief of Forbes magazine, says that Apple CEO Steve Jobs would be the perfect successor to Disney’s Michael Eisner. “Jobs knows high tech, Hollywood and finances as few Hollywood moguls do, and he knows the critical importance of creativity. Jobs’ understanding of technology would be crucial… Jobs understands that when we get true broadband in this country, the Internet will radically change radio and TV broadcasting, just as it’s already changing telephony and the distribution of music and videos. What about Apple Computer? Despite last summer’s cancer surgery (a success), Jobs remains enormously creative and energetic. He could still head Disney and be, as he is now, Apple’s guiding spirit. Walt Disney himself was an artistic genius. The Disney company needs that kind of vision again. Steve Jobs can provide it.”
