News Corp’s Digital Retreat May Focus On Online News This Year

News Corp is doing it yearly company retreat again this year at Murdoch’s Californian ranch in Carmel next week, and this time the three-day meeting will plan a survival strategy for his global newspaper empire in the digital age, reports FT. It was possible some executives might be shifted around as a more detailed plan was put in place, the story says. “All the news divisions will discuss where they are [online], what they are going to do, and where they want to get to,” said a News Corp executive, quoted in a story. “It is the first such detailed meeting to work out the online future for news.” Music like earlier years, a handful of outside speakers will address the 60-or-so executives, including Meg Whitman, CEO of Ebay.
