  News Corporation Files Application to Cease to Be a Reporting Issuer in
  Canada

Business Wire

MONTRÉAL -- April 15, 2013

News Corporation (NASDAQ: NWS, NWSA; ASX: NWS, NWSLV) (the "Corporation")
today announced that it has applied to the Autorité des marchés financiers for
a decision that it be deemed to have ceased to be a reporting issuer in
Québec. If the decision is granted, the Corporation will no longer be a
reporting issuer in any jurisdiction in Canada.

The Corporation does not believe that its securityholders in Canada will be
materially prejudiced by this decision since the nature and scope of publicly
available information about the Corporation required by U.S. securities laws
is substantially the same as the information such securityholders are
currently receiving under the U.S./Canada Multijurisdictional Disclosure
System.

The Corporation's securityholders, including those resident in Québec, will
continue to have access to the Corporation’s disclosure documents filed with
the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") through the
Corporation's corporate website at www.newscorp.com and at the SEC's web site
at www.sec.gov.
