WMA + Endeavor = WME
So it finally went down. After months of rumors and speculation, Endeavor and WMA have put their differences aside and merged to create a new superpower that aims to rival CAA in the world of Entertainment. The new entity will be called WME (William Morris Endeavor). The most interesting part of the deal is that WMA is 111-years-old and Endeavor is only 14 years of age. Out of 47 board members combined in the two former companies, only 1 person objected to the merger.
Obviously, WME will operate with publishing, music, motion picture, and television departments, but what about sports? I re-ask the question: Now that WMA and Endeavor are joining forces, do they start up a sports division to rival superpower CAA as well?
