Disney brings Tiki to TV

While NY Giants star running back Tiki Barber looks to extend his final year in the NFL deep into the playoffs, he has already made solid plans for the future. Those plans include a four year $10 million contract with the Walt Disney Company. He’ll work twin jobs as a host on Good Morning America and on ESPN. Disney’s clearly hoping they have the next big television personality in their hands.

But don’t listen to the critics that say he’s an untested talent. He has his own cable tv show, has made numerous radio and tv appearances, and let’s not forget those great Visa commercials he and his look-a-like brother made. Plus he has a great smile and a personality that’s made for TV. I think he’ll do fine. (Via MouseKingdom Blog)
