Murdoch appoints son to head British network

by on November 15th, 2003

When it came to media-mogul Rupert Murdoch’s decision to appoint son James as head of the British pay-channel BSkyB, some shareholders saw it as nepotism.

Several shareholders vigorously expressed their concern at having a father-son combination at the helm.

Or so it would seem.

But when it came to the vote, James was comfortably elected to the BSkyB board.

Looks like much was made of nothing, and that the board wanted him anyway.
