Willow Bay to Bloomberg

BayIger_4.20.jpgFormer ABC News and CNN anchor Willow Bay will be working for Bloomberg TV covering a west coast business conference next week. But NYT’s Brian Stelter thinks there might be something more here:

The short-term hiring of Ms. Bay, the wife of the Disney chief executive Robert Iger, is bound to renew speculation about a potential pairing between Bloomberg and Disney’s ABC News division. A partnership of some sort has been the subject of widespread speculation in the television news business recently.

David Rhodes, the head of U.S. TV operations for Bloomberg, noted in an interview Wednesday, that “we have relationships with a lot of different networks,” and said Ms. Bay’s stint on the business news channel is unrelated to that.

“This is about what she’s able to do for us in covering this event. We’re hoping to break some news there and put on some interesting programs,” he said.
