Rupert Murdoch Net Worth – Rupert Murdoch is a media mogul from Australia, most widely known as the head of the Fox Broadcasting Company who has a net worth of $13 billion. Rupert Murdoch began his career with one newspaper in Adelaide and expanded into other forms of media, in other countries, in the late 1980’s.
Rupert Murdoch was born on the 11th of March, 1931, in Melbourne, Victoria. Murdoch is the son of Sir Keith Murdoch and Dame Elisabeth Murdoch. He is of English, Irish, and Scottish ancestry. Murdoch’s parents were also born in Melbourne.
Keith Murdoch was a war correspondent and later a regional newspaper magnate owning two newspapers in Adelaide, South Australia, and a radio station in a faraway mining town, and chairman of the powerful Herald and Weekly Times group.
Murdoch took over ‘New Limited’ after his father died in 1952. One of its newspapers, ‘Adelaide News’ became one of the most-read after the young man took ownership.
He had also managed to increase his stake hold over media firms all across Australia. In 1964, Rupert got to know of a bid going on for acquiring the Wellington-based newspaper, ‘The Dominion’, on a trip to New Zealand.
In 1968, the Australian media tycoon ventured into the British market, and took over ‘News of the World’, following it up the next year with ‘The Sun’. They were initially in the long broadsheet size, but were later shortened to a tabloid format, and were printed in the same press to cut down on costs.
In 1986, this businessman came under scrutiny, when he introduced electronic publishing in the Wapping area of London. These processes did not require as much manpower as before, and this resulted in downsizing.
Three years later, ‘News Corporation’ took over the charge of telecasting the ‘National Football League’ , from competitors ‘CBS’.
In 2014, ’21st Century Fox’ attempted to buy over ‘Time Warner’, but the offer was rejected. Presently, the management of most companies under Murdoch is looked after by his younger son, James.
