Michael Eisner ends CNBC show

'Conversations' to wrap in March 2009

The conversation has come to an end for Michael Eisner and CNBC.

The former Mouse House chief will wrap up his monthly series “Conversations With Michael Eisner” in March after three years on CNBC. Eisner told the New York Post on Monday that he needed to focus on running the various businesses in his Tornante Co. venture, which includes Vuguru, the Internet production shingle behind the online serial “Prom Queen” and other made-for-Web skeins.

CNBC declined comment, but insiders indicated that it was Eisner’s call to end the series. A rep for Eisner declined comment.

“Conversations,” a one-on-one interview show that tended to feature showbiz and media bigwigs, bowed in March 2006, a few months after Eisner ended his 21-year tenure as CEO of the Walt Disney Co.
