NEW YORK - August 23, 2012 - News Corporation (NASDAQ: NWS, NWSA; ASX: NWS, NWSLV) today announced that Jonathan Miller, the Company's Chief Digital Officer since 2009, will leave his post at the end of September as the Company moves towards its proposed separation into two distinct companies.

Mr. Miller will serve as an outside advisor to News Corporation on digital issues through fall 2013.

During his tenure, Mr. Miller revamped News Corporation's digital strategy as the Company transitioned away from standalone owned-and-operated web properties and refocused on digital content distribution and the monetization of its existing brands on emerging platforms. He was instrumental in strengthening News Corporation's relationships within the technology industry and also oversaw a number of key investments in the U.S. and abroad, most recently stakes taken in Roku and Bona Film Group. Mr. Miller also represented News Corporation on the Hulu Board of Directors.

Rupert Murdoch, Chairman and CEO of News Corporation, commented: "Jon Miller is a visionary in the digital media industry, and his commitment to News Corporation over the last three years has driven us to truly evolve the way millions of people use new platforms to consume news and entertainment. As we prepare for our proposed Company separation, I respect Jon's desire to return to an operational, entrepreneurial role with a standalone company. He will be missed and I can't thank him enough for his efforts and many valued contributions."

Chase Carey, President and COO of News Corporation, commented: "Jon is a seasoned technology veteran and we've benefited enormously from his insights and deep relationships in Silicon Valley and beyond. We wish him the best of luck on his new ventures."

Jonathan Miller commented: "This has been a fantastic three years and we've made real progress across a number of fronts. I am grateful to Chase, Rupert and James for the opportunity to work across such a great canvas of businesses at a time of real industry change and transformation. While my time spent has been productive, it feels like the right time to exit. I look forward to pursuing new ventures that will lead me back into an operational role."
