Murdoch 'sorry' to see Tom Mockridge leave News Int

For nearly 22 years, it has been my pleasure to have Tom Mockridge as a colleague.

Whether it was his early days with our newspaper group in Australia, his incredible work building Sky Italia, or his steadfast leadership of News

International, Tom has always been a skilled executive and a trusted friend.

His decision to step down is absolutely and entirely his own. I am sorry to see him leave us but I know he will be a great success wherever he goes."

– Rupert Murdoch, chairman and chief executive of News Corporation
