Despite a contract that had until the end of next year to run, Chase Carey is to leave DirecTV and join News Corp as president and COO, in effect Ruperts non-family deputy. News Corp confirmed the announcement late on June 3.

The appointment marks a return to News Corporation for Mr. Carey who spent 15 years as a senior executive at the Company before becoming Chief Executive Officer of The DIRECTV Group in 2003, said a News Corp statement.

Chase has been one of my closest advisors and friends for years and I am delighted well once again be working together across our businesses as we face the challenges and great opportunities ahead, said Murdoch.

Carey said: Under Ruperts leadership, News Corporation has always been the boldest, most innovative media company in the world. With its leading franchises, News Corporations growth opportunities are second to none and I am thrilled to be returning at such a transformative time for our businesses across the globe.
