News Corp. Promotes General Counsel

News Corp. has promoted Janet Nova to exec VP and deputy group general counsel for 21st Century Fox as part of the executive reshuffling in the leadup to the conglom’s split from its publishing unit June 28.

Nova has served in News Corp.’s general counsel’s office since 1997. She joined the company from Simpson Thacher & Bartlett, where she was an associate in the firm’s corporate and securities practice.

Nova’s promotion comes on the heels of News Corp.’s announcement that CFO David DeVoe will exit the company after the split, which will separate News Corp. publishing assets including the Wall Street Journal and the New York Post from its media and entertainment divisions. The latter unit, which includes the Fox film and television studios, will be renamed “21st Century Fox.”

In her new role, Nova will oversee the legal aspects of the Company’s mergers and acquisitions activity, capital markets transactions, and SEC and stock exchange reporting, and advise the company’s board committees. Ms. Nova will continue to report to Gerson Zweifach, the senior exec VP, group general counsel, and chief compliance officer for 21st Century Fox.
