News Corp. Denies Interest in The Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune

Both The Los Angeles Times and Reuters have said that News Corp is currently in talks to acquire the Los Angeles Times and The Chicago Tribune. And both, according to News Corp., are wrong. “Reports that News Corp. is in discussions with Tribune or the L.A. Times are wholly inaccurate,” Julie Henderson, a spokesperson for the company, told Bloomberg News in an email.

The LA Times reported that News Corp. is in talks with the debt holders of Tribune Company (parent of the LA Times and Chicago Tribune). Those holders will become majority holders of the company when it emerges from bankruptcy.

Reuters has updated their report, saying that their source redacted info. The LA Times is sticking by its claim.

Veteran Communications Exec Departs News Corp.

Teri Everett, News Corporation’s Senior Vice President of Corporate Affairs and Communications, is leaving the company after 12 years. Everett started with News Corp. in 200o, directing its Los Angeles communications. She has been in her current position since 2009.

“News Corp. executives are a peerless group and I will miss them immensely,” said Everett. “I will always be grateful to Rupert and Chase for their support over the years and am thrilled that Julie will be succeeding me. While it may be a tired cliche, I am ready for something new.”

Julie Henderson is succeeding Everett, whose last day is February 10. Henderson’s title will be Senior Vice President, Corporate Affairs and Chief Communications Officer.
