Who owns ESPN? ESPN is jointly owned by The Walt Disney Company and the Hearst Corporation, with Disney owning the majority share. ESPN was founded in 1979 by Bill Rasmussen and Getty Oil, who sold the channel in 1984 to ABC, which was itself purchased the following year by Capital Cities Communications. Disney purchased ABC in 1996 and has maintained full control of ESPN Inc. since.
