Rebekah Brooks Returns to the Murdoch Fold in New Internet Role

Rebekah Brooks, the former chief executive officer of News Corp.’s U.K. subsidiary, will return to work under Rupert Murdoch eight months after being cleared of phone-hacking charges.

Brooks, 46, will rejoin Murdoch-controlled News Corp. to take a senior role with Dublin-based Storyful, a startup that helps newsrooms find and vet video content from across the Web, according to a person familiar with the matter. News Corp. bought the company in December 2013 for $25 million to take advantage of growth in crowd-sourced reporting.
