News Corp names more senior executives in prep for split


(REUTERS) - Soon-to-be publishing company News Corp named Mr William Lewis, one of the executives who dealt with the aftermath of the phone hacking scandal, as chief creative officer.

Also joining the executive suite will be Ms Anoushka Healy, who was named chief strategy officer.

Mr Lewis and Ms Healy will report to News Corp chief executive officer Robert Thomson.

News Corp is preparing later this year to split into a separate company that will operate such properties as the Wall Street Journal, The Times of London, and book publisher HarperCollins.
