The article reports on the decision of John Malone, Liberty Media Corp. chairman, to exchange his voting shares in DirecTV Inc. for common share which earns him 160 million dollars. It notes that the move was caused after Liberty Media Corp. acquired News Corp.'s controlling interest in DirecTV Inc. and merged Liberty Entertainment in 2009. According to David Joyce, Miller Tabak media analyst, his decision could be also affected by his desire to protect his interest in Liberty Global.
