News Corp.’s long-awaited split is official. Rupert Murdoch’s media behemoth Friday completed the separation of its entertainment from its news and information businesses into two publicly traded companies. The new News Corp (spelled with no period, differentiating it from the previous conglomerate) is comprised of Murdoch’s newspapers worldwide, including The Wall Street Journal, New York Post and The Times of London, as well as couponing, book publishing, digital education and other businesses. Post-separation, News Corp, split off so as not to be a drag on the faster-growing entertainment side, will emerge the biggest U.S. newspaper publisher , bigger than Gannett Co. and the New York Times Co. put together.
