WME-IMG/RocNation, the sports-rights business arm of the Walt Disney Co., is bringing a new asset to its portfolio.
The company will add Wild in a variety of media and entertainment sectors, including television and film, as well as in publishing, music and entertainment.
In the media, Wild will be joining a portfolio of companies including ESPN, NBC, Fox Sports, NBC Sports and ESPN.
The new asset will expand the Wild brand across a broad spectrum of entertainment and sports.
The Wild and its players, coaches, owners and management will remain the core of the team.
WME-ImG/RocketMedia is a media company with an international footprint.
Its brands include ESPN, CNN, Golf Channel, Golf Digest, GolfStar and the Golf Channel.
“We are excited to bring Wild to our portfolio,” said Tom Leyden, the president of Walt Disney Pictures Media and Entertainment.
“This new asset strengthens the brand as we continue to strengthen our brand and its position as the top entertainment brand in the world.
We are proud to be a part of the Wild family, and we look forward to building on our successful partnership with the Wild to create new opportunities for Wild fans worldwide.”
The deal was announced today.
The new assets, the company said in a statement, will enable Wild to continue to expand its content portfolio and to expand Wild’s global reach, including with new partners, platforms and platforms in multiple languages.
As part of its new portfolio, Wild has already added ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, Fox, NBCSN, NBC Golf Channel and the NBC Sports Live Extra sports channel.
The team is also adding an additional slate of original content and content for its social media channels.
Wolves CEO Russ Bridgestone said that the team is looking forward to bringing more of its content to fans.
There are many things we look for in a partner and they include having a strong commitment to sports and supporting the team in whatever way we can, he said.
At the same time, we look to our brand to be one of the biggest pillars of the company and that is the Wild, he added.
Bridgestone and Wild board member Steve Greenberg have been working on a new ownership structure for the team for several years.
The board has said they are ready to move forward with a plan to buy the team, but it’s not clear when that plan will be finalized.
A deal has been made between Wild and the Wild’s ownership group, which has been known for taking a hard-line stance against team owner Bill Foley.
Foley was fired from his position as general manager of the Philadelphia Flyers, and the team has been without a general manager since December.
While the team and the owners have been engaged in talks, the Wild did not make any major announcements or make any moves on Friday, including the hiring of Foley as general coach, which is expected to happen on Saturday.
With a roster that has been built by Foley and the previous ownership group and an ownership group that has had its own troubles in recent years, it was not surprising that the Wild announced that they would be adding a new owner.
This move was a surprise.
But it’s important to understand that the board has been working very hard on a plan and it’s time to move into the next phase of this process, said Bridgestones co-owner Mike Pinfold, who is in his seventh year as CEO of the organization.
That was the first step.
We know that we have a very good ownership group.
After the team’s first year under a new GM, we made a number of decisions that will benefit the franchise and we’ll continue to do that.
It’s a good time to get this going.
You can’t really say anything right now, but we know that this is the right time to do it, said Greenberg.
I’m really proud of the ownership group in place, said Pinfolds co-chairman Mike Raskin.
When the new ownership group was formed in December, there was a lot of uncertainty and a lot was going on with the team right now.
It’s important for us to move ahead with this ownership structure, and it will be good for the future of the franchise.”
