Disney Tops Media Company Revenue List

Disney is the top dog (or mouse, if you want to be dumb/cute about things). SNL Kagan released its annual list which ranks media companies by analyzing revenue and profitability, and The Walt Disney Company takes the number one spot. According to Mediapost, the company had $42.3 billion in revenue last year. Not bad, considering the people who work at Disney thought Taylor Kitsch was a great actor.

Here’s the top five media companies, ranked by 2012 revenue:

1) Disney ($42.3 billion)
2) News Corp. ($33.7 billion)
3) Omnicom Group ($14.2)
4) CBS ($14.1)
5) Viacom ($13.9)
