Executive Shuffle: News Corp To Restructure TV Divisions
News Corp. is considering a restructuring of its television division that is expected to a see a re-shuffling of duties among top executives, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the situation.
While details are still being finalized, Peter Rice is expected to assume greater control over the entertainment assets, including the cable side, while David Hill will gain greater power on the sports side.
No changes at the FOX broadcast network, but it looks like Peter Rice who now oversees the broadcast net will also be responsible for the cable networks, including FX, that are currently run by Rich Battista. So FX chief John Landgraf would report directly to Rice.
