Wikipedia, 18 April 2021 (The original incarnation of News Corporation (abbreviated News Corp.) was an American multinational mass media corporation operated and owned by media mogul Rupert Murdoch and headquartered in New York City; prior to its split in 2013, it was the world's fourth-largest media group in terms of revenue, and News Corporation had become a media powerhouse since its inception, almost dominating the news, television, film and print industries; On June 28, 2012, after concerns from shareholders in response to its recent scandals and to "unlock even greater long-term shareholder value", founder Rupert Murdoch announced that News Corporation's assets would be split into two publicly traded companies, one oriented towards media (21st Century Fox), and the other towards publishing and the Australian broadcasting assets (News Corp); the corporate spin-off formally took place on June 28, 2013)
