News Corp. Ups Henderson To Chief Communications Officer
Her appointment was touted as part of a "new chapter in the company's history" by Chase Carey, COO/president of News Corp.
Henderson will continue as spokesperson for the company, in addition to leading all global communications initiatives, such as M&A, regulatory issues and litigation. Another part of her new responsibilities is managing the 21st Century Fox corporate brand worldwide.
January 2012, Henderson has been senior vice president, corporate affairs and chief communications officer of News Corporation. Before that, she was SVP, communications and corporate strategy. Prior
to joining the corporate office, she served at Fox Interactive Media and ran the digital unit of mPRm Public Relations.
Last June, News Corp. divided the business into two independent companies: one oversees global media and entertainment businesses, the other houses News Corp.'s newspapers, integrated marketing, book publishing, sports programming and pay-TV in Australia.
