Chase Carey, Co-Chief Operating Officer, Resigns Executive
Duties At News Corporation

Carey To Remain on Board of Directors and Serve as Consultant

NEW YORK, NY, January 24, 2002 - News Corporation today announced
that Chase Carey has decided to resign his positions as Co-Chief
Operating Officer of the Company and President and Chief Executive
Officer of Sky Global Networks.  Mr. Carey, who will remain on the
Board of Directors of News Corporation, will serve as a consultant
to the Company through 2002.

News Corporation Chairman and Chief Executive Rupert Murdoch
said:  "It is with great regret that I accept Chase's decision
to resign from the Company.  For the past 15 years, Chase's
vision, energy and leadership helped transform News Corp. into
a global leader in broadcast and pay television. Today, in
part because of Chase's extraordinary accomplishments, News
Corp. encompasses a major national television network; the
number one name in sports broadcasting; the fastest growing
cable channels in the U.S.; and the leading providers of
pay-TV services in Asia, Europe and Latin America. Chase has
been not only a valued colleague but a personal friend, and
while I will miss our daily interaction, I will continue to
rely on his superb judgment as News Corp. builds on the
successes Chase helped foster."

Mr. Carey said:  "I have had a great career at News Corp. and
leave with tremendous pride in the Company we have built.  When
I joined the Company, we had a two-night-a-week broadcast network,
seven stations and no cable programming, international television
operations or sports and news programming.  Today News Corp. is a
global media industry leader and a company that is truly a model
for the 21st century."

Mr. Carey continued: "I want to thank Rupert for the opportunity
to be an integral part of this challenge.  The environment he
created - one in which intelligent risk-taking and the ability
to seize strategic opportunities are rewarded and bureaucracy
is eschewed - has been critical to our success.  The toughest
aspect of my departure is having to leave a set of colleagues
who are not just the best at what they do but great friends.
Nonetheless, it is the right time for me to take a step back
and catch my breath with confidence that only bigger and better
things lay ahead for News Corp."

Mr. Carey was named Co-Chief Operating Officer of News
Corporation in 1996.  Previously, he served as Chairman
and Chief Executive Officer of Fox Television beginning in
1994.  Before holding that position, Mr. Carey was Chief
Operating Officer of Fox, having served as the company's
Chief Financial Officer until 1992.  Mr. Carey joined Fox
as Executive Vice President in 1988.
