James Murdoch has endorsed Mockridge saying he has proven himself. “Tom is an outstanding executive with unrivalled experience across our journalism and television businesses. He has proven himself to be a very effective operator in his time at Sky Italia.
Under his leadership, Sky has grown to become one of the world’s most successful pay TV businesses, reaching close to 5 million homes and launching channels like TG24 which has set a new standard for independent journalism in Italy. I believe that Tom is the best person to move the company forward to a brighter future.” – James Murdoch, Deputy Chief Operating Officer, Chairman and CEO for News Coroporation.
