(This version of November 9th story corrects to say expenses fell to $1.15 billion, not $1.14 billion, in paragraph 6, and total revenue rose 4.7 percent, not 4.5 percent, in paragraph 10)

(Reuters) - Wall Street Journal owner News Corp (>> News Corp) reported a better-than-expected quarterly profit on Thursday, driven by a tight control on expenses and growth in revenue across all its businesses.

News Corp said revenue in its rapidly growing digital real-estate unit, which includes REA Group Ltd (>> REA Group Limited), rose nearly 20 percent to $271 million.

Increased competition from digital media and a declining readership is driving print advertising down. Spending on print advertising in the U.S. is expected to fall 14 percent this year to about $18 billion, a third of what it was 10 years ago, according to media research firm Magna Intelligence.

Major publishers have not been immune to eroding print ad sales. New York Times Co (>> New York Times Co) reported a 20.1 percent decline in print ad revenue in the latest quarter, while Chicago Tribune Media owner Tronc Inc (>> tronc Inc) posted an 18 percent fall.

News Corp, controlled by media mogul Rupert Murdoch, has been implementing various cost-cutting measures like reducing staff in its Dow Jones division, which includes the Journal, while boosting its digital real estate business to improve margins.

Operating expenses fell to $1.15 billion from $1.16 billion.

Revenue in the company's news and information division, which accounts for about two-thirds of total revenue, rose 1.6 percent to $1.24 billion in its first quarter.

Net income available to shareholders was $68 million, or 12 cents per share, in the first quarter ended Sept. 30, compared with a loss of $15 million, or 3 cents per share, a year earlier.

On an adjusted basis, the company earned 7 cents per share, beating the average analysts' estimate of a profit of 1 cent, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

Total revenue rose 4.7 percent to $2.06 billion, beating analysts' estimate of $1.98 billion.

Thomson Reuters <TRI.N> (>> Thomson Reuters Corp) the parent of Reuters News, competes with Dow Jones Newswires.
