Elisabeth Murdoch Said Leaving Fox After Shine-Endemol Deal

Elisabeth Murdoch will leave her father’s company again once Shine Group Ltd., the TV production business she founded and sold to 21st Century Fox Inc., becomes part of a joint venture, people with knowledge of the matter said.

Murdoch, who is non-executive chairman of Shine, will focus on other investments including startup Locksmith Animation, said the people, who asked not to be named because the matter isn’t public. Her departure is expected by early 2015 when a deal to combine Shine with Apollo Global Management LLC’s Endemol NV, the Dutch producer of “Big Brother,” and Core Media Group, which owns “American Idol,” is complete.
