“I have asked Siobhan to provide strategic oversight of our broadcast assets, work closely with Peter Tonagh, Patrick Delany and Angelos Frangopoulos on their major initiatives, and to work with me to further develop the News Corp Australia portfolio.
“Siobhan has joined the boards of Fox Sports, Foxtel and Sky News as a director. She has deep experience across multiple media categories, and is a sought-after business leader and company director across varied industries.
“Her deep knowledge of our industry, its challenges and opportunities make her a great asset to our company.”
