• Sandberg, Dorsey to leave the Disney board

    Updated:
    BURBANK, Calif. (AP) - Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey will be leaving the board of The Walt Disney Co. Neither executive will stand for re-election at the company's annual meeting in March.

    A Disney spokesperson says it has become "increasingly difficult for them to avoid conflicts relating to board matters."

    With Disney planning to put ESPN online, Twitter live-streaming sports like NFL football, and Facebook prioritizing live video, online video is a likely area of overlap.

    The pending departure of the two Disney board members was revealed in a securities filing Friday.
