News Corp. (NWS) confirms the appointment of WSJ Editor-in-Chief Robert Thomson as the CEO of its publishing operations. Thomson will start the job on Jan. 1. The publishing company will retain the News Corp. name, while the media & entertainment business will be called Fox Group. News Corp. indicates that its breakup will still occur in June next year. That appears to be contrary to a report that the split will be concluded at the end of this month. (PR)
