In her new role, Ms. Nova will oversee the legal aspects of the Company’s M&A activity, capital markets transactions, and SEC and stock exchange reporting, and advise the Company’s Board committees. Ms. Nova will continue to report to Gerson Zweifach, the Senior Executive Vice President, Group General Counsel, and Chief Compliance Officer for 21st Century Fox.

“Janet’s elevation is a testament to the significant contributions she has made to the Company over her distinguished tenure as well as to her exceptional talents as a legal executive,” said Mr. Zweifach. “News Corporation has benefited from her judgment, insight and guidance on a range of critical issues, including the separation of our businesses, and I am confident she will be a driving force for 21st Century Fox.”

Ms. Nova has been a part of the Company’s General Counsel’s office since 1997, including serving as the Company’s Interim Group General Counsel from June 2011 to February 2012. She joined News Corporation from Simpson Thacher & Bartlett, where she was an Associate in the firm’s corporate and securities practice.

She received her law degree from the Columbia University School of Law and her undergraduate degree from Princeton University. Ms. Nova serves on the Board of the Yankee Entertainment and Sports Network (YES) and on the Executive Committee of Entertainment, Media and Communications Division of the UJA-Federation of New York.
