Rupert Murdoch and his wife just became the new owners of a $200 million cattle ranch, formerly owned by the Koch family. 

The 90-year-old media tycoon bought the 340,000-acre property, known as Beaverhead, said a spokeswoman, declining to comment on the price, which was earlier reported by the Wall Street Journal.
