Disney CEO Bob Iger, wife Willow Bay on verge of purchasing controlling stake in NWSL’s Angel City FC: reports

July 3, 2024

Bob Iger is one of the most powerful figures in the media. The longtime Walt Disney Co. CEO and his wife, Willow Bay, the dean of USC’s journalism school, appear to be close to striking a deal that would see them make a significant investment in a professional women’s sports franchise.

The pending investment from Iger and Bay would allow the couple to succeed Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian as Angel City FC’s largest shareholder.

The deal would also see the sports franchise’s value jump to a record-setting $300 million. fox
