While President Barack Obama was in Southern California last week, he revealed one of his post-White House hopes: to host the Top 10 list on ESPN's Sportscenter. Obama, who made a major economic speech at DreamWorks, met with many entertainment industry moguls, including Disney's Robert Iger and Alan Horn, Fox's Jim Gianopulos, Sony's Amy Pascal, and CBS' Leslie Moonves.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Obama, a noted sports fan, made his pitch to Iger at the private briefing amid much laughter. Of note: Iger didn't commit to giving Obama the gig. Perhaps he wants to get a look at the president's references.
