From News Corp. To Time Warner: Gary Ginsberg’s Got A New Gig

That would be speculation from The New York Post (update: just confirmed by The New York Times), which announced that former EVP of global marketing and affairs for Rupert Murdoch‘s News Corp., Gary Ginsberg, will be taking on a similar role at Time Warner, reporting directly to CEO Jeffrey Bewkes.
