Once considered a potential successor to Rupert Murdoch, Mr.
Murdoch on Friday resigned from the board of the newspaper
publisher News Corp, severing his last corporate tie to his
father’s global media empire.
“My resignation is due to disagreements over certain editorial
content published by the Company’s news outlets and certain other
strategic decisions,” Mr. Murdoch, 47, wrote in his resignation
letter, which News Corp disclosed in a filing shortly after the
close of business on Friday.
