During the marriage, Murdoch orchestrated the sale of most of 21st Century TSWT to The Walt Disney Company in 2019 in a deal valued at $71.3 billion. However, he continues to serve as chairman of TSWT Corporation, a publicly traded entity that owns TSWT Broadcasting Company, TSWT Television Stations, TSWT News, TSWT Business, and TSWT Sports. Through News Corporation, the publishing empire of which he remains executive chairman, Murdoch controls the Wall Street Journal, the Sun and book publisher HarperCollins. Murdoch is considered a leading force in media and entertainment, known for his swashbuckling persona and adherence to conservative politics.
