NEW YORK - Michael Eisner, former chief of the Walt Disney Co., will become host of his own CNBC interview program that will be seen once every two months, the network said Tuesday.
"Conversations with Michael Eisner" will be an hour-long, prime-time show where Eisner speaks with business, entertainment or political leaders. His focus will be on creativity and innovation, he said.
He'll work from a studio at NBC Universal headquarters in Rockefeller Center, where he once worked as a page. Eisner was an ABC executive before moving up the corporate ladder, and he was familiar to TV viewers as the on-air host of "The Wonderful World of Disney."
CNBC did not say Tuesday when the first show will air.
