Viet Dinh to Become Chief Legal Officer of the New Fox

Longtime 21st Century Fox FOX +0.29% board member Viet Dinh is stepping down to take a senior position with “Fox,” the tentative name for the company that will consist of entertainment and news assets not being acquired by Walt Disney Co. , including Fox News, Fox Sports and the Fox broadcast network.

Mr. Dinh, who has served on 21st Century Fox’s board for 15 years, has been named chief legal and policy officer for the new Fox, the company said. In addition to oversight of its legal affairs, Mr. Dinh will also direct the new Fox’s government and public-affairs operations.

Most recently a partner at the law firm of Kirkland and Ellis, and before that a professor at Georgetown University’s law school, Mr. Dinh will take on many of the roles previously held by 21st Century Fox General Counsel Gerson Zweifach, who will depart when the sale of assets to Disney is completed.

Mr. Dinh, 50 years old, will be based in Los Angeles and report to Lachlan Murdoch, who will be the chairman and chief executive of the new Fox. Mr. Dinh will also be a member of the office of the chairman, which will be comprised of the leadership of the new Fox.

During his tenure on the board, Mr. Dinh became close to both 21st Century Fox Executive Chairman Rupert Murdoch and Lachlan Murdoch, a person close to the company said. He is the second significant leadership appointment to the new Fox. John Nallen, the chief financial officer and senior executive vice president of 21st Century Fox, will become chief operating officer of the new Fox. He will also report to Lachlan Murdoch.

“Viet brings to ‘Fox’ a unique strategic mind and deep knowledge of our business based on his many years of service on the 21st Century Fox board,” Lachlan Murdoch said in a written statement. “He will be a key member of our senior management team as well as a valued advisor to me, our chief operating officer John Nallen, and the rest of the team,” he added.

Mr. Dinh’s board seat won’t be filled.

The new Fox’s holdings include Fox Broadcasting and its local television stations, the Fox News and Fox Business channels and the national sports channel Fox Sports 1.

Live programming including sports is expected to play a major role at the new Fox. Besides airing National Football League games on Sunday afternoons and Thursday nights, the Fox Broadcasting unit also has struck recent media-rights deals with World Wrestling Entertainment and Premier Boxing Champions.

The Murdoch family is a major shareholder in 21st Century Fox and Wall Street Journal parent News Corp.
