ames Murdoch to head Sky Deutschland's supervisory board

James Murdoch is to become the new chairman of the supervisory board of German pay-TV broadcaster Sky Deutschland on 27 September 2013 after the deputy chief operating officer, chairman and CEO, international, of 21st Century Fox was elected by the board to the top position.

Murdoch, who's been a member of the supervisory board since April 2013, will succeed Chase Carey, president and chief operating officer of 21st Century Fox. Carey, who's been chairman since July 2010, will remain a member of the board.
The change doesn't come as a surprise as it was announced in July that the son of media entrepreneur and Sky Deutschland majority stakeholder Rupert Murdoch would become the new head of the supervisory board by the end of the year.
