Rupert Murdoch has stepped down from the boards of several companies behind British newspapers The Sun, The Times and The Sunday Times, according to The Telegraph. Katherine Rushton reports:
Companies House filings show that Mr Murdoch stepped down from the boards of the NI Group, Times Newspaper Holdings and News Corp Investments in the UK last week. He also quit a number of News Corp’s US boards, the details of which have yet to be disclosed by the US Securities and Exchange Commission.
News Corporation played down the significance of the resignations as “nothing more than a corporate housecleaning exercise prior to the company split”.
