News Corp paid executive chairman Rupert Murdoch $5.3 million in 2015, according to SEC filings made today by the publishing company that houses the Wall Street Journal and HarperCollins as well as UK newspaper assets and cable networks like Foxtel and Fox Sports Australia.
The disclosure comes after Murdoch’s other company, 21st Century Fox, reported that as executive chairman chairman there he saw his annual compensation rise almost 25% compared with fiscal-year 2015, with a total package of $34.6 million.
News Corp’s fiscal year ended in June 2016. Both News Corp and 21st Century Fox’s annual shareholders meetings are November 10 at Fox Studios.
