FOX News Network
Fox News Channel is an American cable television news and political commentary channel launched in 1996. The network operated under the Fox Entertainment Group’s film and television division of Rupert Murdoch’s 21st Century Fox, formerly known as News Corporation.
Murdoch sought to expand his presence in the American television market after having experienced success with his Fox Broadcasting Compan. After an attempt to purchase the 24-hour cable news network CNN failed, he endeavored to create his own cable news channel. He enlisted television producer and former Republican political consultant Roger Ailes to oversee the new network. Ailes’s business acumen and political leanings became closely associated with its eventual success.
The initial hurdle for the fledgling cable network was to obtain “carriage” on the numerous local and regional cable systems. It was routine for cable companies to pay networks such as HBO or MTV for the right to broadcast their content, but Murdoch reversed the equation, paying cable providers to carry Fox News. As a result, when the network first took to the airwaves on October 7, 1996, it was viewable in more than 17 million homes.
He has an estimated salary ranging between $70,000 – $125,000 and has an estimated net worth of $1 Million -$5 Million which he earns from his broadcasting career.
