Former NYC Education Comms Director Joins News Corp

Just one day after it was announced that News Corp‘s SVP of public affairs and communications, Teri Everett, would be stepping down, the company has announced that another comms director is stepping in.

Natalie Ravitz, the communications director for the New York City Department of Education, is joining News Corp as Rupert Murdoch’s chief of staff. The change takes effect in two weeks. A focus of her job will be to “prioritize my commitments to align with key News Corp. initiatives,” according to an internal email from Murdoch.

Ravitz has a history with another News Corp exec, Joel Klein, the former NYC Department of Education who left in 2010 to serve as EVP at News Corp. According to the L.A. Times, Klein’s influence at the company is growing.

Julie Henderson has been promoted to Everett’s previous position.
