New era begins at Fox Corp. with Paul Ryan, Chase Carey on board

The new, slimmed-down Fox Corp. made its debut on the stock market on Tuesday as The Walt Disney Co. prepares to take over 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets just after midnight Eastern time on Wednesday morning. Fox (NASDAQ: FOXA, FOX, FOXAV, FOXBV) is now a standalone company that produces and distributes news, sports and entertainment content through Fox News, Fox Sports, the Fox Network and the Fox Television Stations. The company also announced the addition of four new board directors, including former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan and Formula 1 chief Chase Carey.
