MIKE ON RADIO: Bantering About the Murdoch Family, CinemaCon and Disney's Maker Purchase on KCRW's "The Business"

Kim Masters was back on this week's edition of KCRW's "The Business," but her banter buddy John Horn was out, so I'm once again bacl this week to chat about the week's entertainment news. Here's what we touched on:

- News out of CinemaCon, the annual trade show for theater owners, is that global box office is strong except among the youth in the US.

- More Murdoch family drama and news of a succession plan to run the various companies of News Corp.

- Disney news: Anne Sweeney has been replaced by Ben Sherwood to run ABC and the other Disney-owned TV channels. What will his news background bring to the job?

- Disney plans to spend hundreds of millions of dollars to buy the online studio Maker Studios.

Listen today at 2:30 p.m. (PT) on KCRW 89.9, or listen now below!
