Deadline Hollywood was the first to report Tuesday that ABC Entertainment Group President Stephen McPherson will resign. Deadline posted that “something’s going on” with the upper ranks at Disney, and that McPherson had been on vacation for several weeks and had not returned. McPherson was under fire at ABC, despite bringing hits to the network such as Lost, Grey’s Anatomy, and Modern Family. Disney chief Robert Iger has publicly insisted he will not sell ABC, but it's rumored that Iger had lately focused on McPherson’s tenure at the helm of the network. McPherson had famously clashed with Disney-ABC TV Group president, Anne Sweeney, for years. According to New York Magazine’s Vulture blog, one outsider opined, "Anne Sweeney finally got her way."
