News Corp. picks Daisy Dunlop as deputy comms leader

She is reporting to News Corp. CCO Jim Kennedy.

NEW YORK: News Corp. has selected Daisy Dunlop as VP and deputy head of communications.

She stepped into the role at the beginning of the month, reporting to News Corp. CCO Jim Kennedy.

Dunlop succeeded Ashley Huston, who joined Dow Jones as interim CCO last July and was picked to fill the role on a permanent basis in November. Since last summer, Huston had also handled her previously responsibilities as News Corp.’s SVP and deputy head of communications.

Dunlop confirmed that she will work across all corporate communications matters for the company. She will also assist News Corp.’s media outlets, which include newspapers such as The Times in the UK and the New York Post, as well as book publisher Harper Collins, digital education arm Amplify, and its Australian TV business.

Dunlop relocated from the UK to New York in March 2013 to join News Corp. as VP of strategy and planning, just ahead of the company’s split into two publicly traded businesses that June. Its former film and TV business became 21st Century Fox, while its media and publishing assets retained the News Corp. name.

Dunlop declined to comment when asked if the company will replace her in the role of VP of strategy and planning. Before that position, she worked at News International in London for 12 years, most recently as head of external communications for corporate affairs.
