News Corp. taps Breindel senior VP

SYDNEY — Eric Breindel, editorial page editor of the New York Post, has been appointed senior vice president of Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp. Effective Monday, Breindel’s New York-based role will focus on stra-tegic policy and planning for the global media colossus.

“We look forward to bringing Mr. Breindel’s wide-ranging talents into News Corp.’s global operations, where he will play a major role in strategic policy,” Murdoch said in a statement. “I am confident that Mr. Breindel’s new position will enable him to display the same outstanding professional abilities he consistently demonstrated during his decade at the Post. ”

Breindel will also moderate a new weekly public affairs show on Murdoch’s embryonic Fox News Channel. He will also continue to write a weekly column for the Post and appear weekly on “Metro Journal,” a program on Gotham politics that airs on Dow Jones/ITT channel WBIS.

At present, he is writing a book on Soviet espionage in America that will be published in 1998 by News Corp.’s HarperCollins.

Before being appointed to the Post in 1986, Breindel, a New York native, was the foreign policy and intelligence legislative assistant to Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan (D-N.Y.).
