To make his dream as it is today, Rupert started his journey with one newspaper in Adelaide and eventually grabbed other publications in Australia. Soon Murdoch expanded News Corp in United Kingdom, United States and Asia region as well. However, it was the late 1950’s decade when Rupert first immersed in television. Later these Rupert Murdoch assets were sold but News Corp’s current Australian media interests are prohibited by cross-media ownership rules. Rupert’s first long-lasting venture into television was in the United States and it was Fox Broadcasting Company founded in 1986. In 2010, Fox News accumulated 700 million dollar as operating profit and it was the head to head competition in terms of rating while pushing republicans over the top in the midterms. Last year, 7.1 million dollar was allocated as Rupert Murdoch salary along with attractive stock options, incentive compensation and profit in the value of his retirement plan. Rupert Murdoch house is worth 57 million dollars. Rupert Murdoch and News Corp must be thankful to Apple as it became the first publisher to sell digital subscription on the iPad with the launch of The Daily.
Well moving into personal life, Rupert Murdoch married thrice in his life but now is said to be single. At first Patricia Booker was first Rupert Murdoch wife until the couple divorced in 1967 after the 11 years of marriage. Rupert then married Anna Maria Torv soon after divorce. But this time also Rupert had got a long time appointment with the law as he legally separated with Anna in 1999. Just after 17 days of divorce with second wife, at the age of 68, Murdoch tied a knot with Chinese-born Wendi Deng. But this time also he was not lucky. Unfortunately, in 2013 Rupert filed for divorce in New York. Murdoch also gave up his long term relationship with Tony Blaire after suspecting him of having extra marital relationship with Deng even while they were married. About a month ago, Murdoch made an announcement of his engagement with former model Jerry Hall. Rupert Murdoch has 6 children and 11 grand children.
