James Murdoch Rebounds From Hacking Scandal to Run Fox

James Murdoch has regained his status as heir apparent at his father’s media empire just four years after a phone-hacking scandal in the U.K. threatened his ascent. Rupert Murdoch is preparing to step down as chief executive officer of 21st Century Fox Inc. and hand the title to 42-year-old James, according to a person familiar with the matter. His older brother, Lachlan, would become co-executive chairman, the person said. Bloomberg's Mark Beech discusses the moves with Anna Edwards on "Countdown." (Source: Bloomberg)
