Kathryn Murdoch — the daughter in law of conservative media mogul Rupert Murdoch — and her husband James have emerged as unlikely voices for climate change and setting aside partisan politics, according to a profile by The New York Times.
He was running its British satellite TV service Sky while quietly slipping in green initiatives to the company’s efforts.
James’ older brother, Lachlan, however, soon emerged as the “favored sun” with James receding.
After News Corp. sold many of its assets to Disney earlier this year, James left the company.
Lachlan, meanwhile, continued on as CEO and chair of Fox Corp., the company that held on the assets that weren’t sold — namely its broadcast network, Fox Business and the cable channel that airs “Hannity.”
Meanwhile, James and Kathryn Murdoch have widened their push into climate change initiatives, which is likely a sore spot with the other Murdochs and Fox.
