Fox Corporation


Executive Chairman / CEO

Murdoch had to give up his studio-chief job in 2019 when News Corp. sold its 21st Century Fox assets to Disney, but he’s retained his position as the No. 2 man at the company and heir apparent to his father, Rupert Murdoch, who turned 90 in March 2021. As chairman and CEO of Fox Corp., he was able to boast of rising ad revenue, the success of its AVOD platform Tubi and Fox News’ continued ratings dominance. In May, Fox acquired sports website Outkick, which complements its Fox Bet online gambling platform, owned in partnership with the Stars Group. Murdoch took a break from News Corp. from 2005 to 2014, during which time he founded the private investment company Illyria Pty Ltd, whose holdings include media company Nova Entertainment in Australia.
