Keith Rupert Murdoch, AC, KCSG is an Australian-born American media mogul. Keith Rupert Murdoch has an estimated net worth of $12.9 billion in April 2017, according to Bloomberg. Beginning with one newspaper in Adelaide, Murdoch acquired and started other publications in his native Australia before expanding News Corp into the United Kingdom, United States and Asian media markets. Although it was in Australia in the late 1950s that he first dabbled in television, he later sold these assets, and News Corp’s Australian current media interests (still mainly in print) are restricted by cross-media ownership rules. Murdoch’s first permanent foray into TV was in the USA, where he created Fox Broadcasting Company in 1986.
