CEO of 21st Century Fox, Rupert Murdoch, has taken home a salary of $US28 million ($A39.8 million) for 2014-15 documents have revealed.
However, this was a pay cut of 4.6 per cent on his $US29.2 million salary the year previous.
Murdoch’s base salary was $US7.1 million while the remainder was made up of stock bonuses, incentives and pension benefits.

However, despite the lavish salaries, both James and Rupert have taken pay cuts after Fox’s underlying fourth-quarter revenue fell nine per cent to $US6.21 billion due to poorer ticket sales at the box office.
