Disney Out in Full Force at CES

January 8, 2007 8:35 PM

Disney sent quite an entourage of suits out to Las Vegas for CES and Disney CEO Bob Iger’s keynote on Monday afternoon. With more 200 seats earmarked for Disney here in the Venetian ballroom, Disney’s been filling them with the likes of Anne Sweeney, co-chair of Disney Media Networks and president of the Disney-ABC Television Group; Albert Cheng, executive VP of digital media with the Disney-ABC Television Group; and Bruce Gersh, senior VP of business development for ABC Entertainment and Touchstone Television. But I like to think of him as my supplier, since Mr. Gersh was kind enough to get me addicted to my most favorite show in the whole universe, “Grey’s Anatomy,” when he slipped me the DVDs for seasons one and two of the show back in September.

Disney is also packing those seats with executives from ABC.com, Disneychannel.com, ESPN and its mobile television group.
