ABSTRACT
This article talks about who will succeed Rupert Murdoch, chief executive officer of News Corp., when he steps down from his position. Murdoch insists his board of directors will decide the question. Nell Minow, co-founder of the Corporate Library, says it would be impossible that the board, with 7 out of 15 members having strong ties with Murdoch, will choose someone who is not biologically related to the chief executive. James, the younger son of Murdoch, is expected to step up to the position.
