Elisabeth Murdoch Net Worth: Elisabeth Murdoch is a British American television industry and international media executive who has a net worth of $375 million. Elisabeth Murdoch was born on August 22 1968, in Sydney, Australia. She currently serves as the Chairman and CEO of Shine Limited, a media production company with offices in London and Manchester. Being the daughter of international media mogul Rupert Murdoch, Elisabeth had the chance to attend notable schools in New York City before eventually graduating from Vassar College. After graduation, she started her career as a manager at her father's FX Networks, a cable TV service located in Los Angeles, California. It was in 1994 that Murdoch made her first acquisition together with her then husband, Elkin Kwesi Pianim, buying a pair of NBC-affiliate television stations, KSBW and KSBY, in California on a US$35 million loan provided by her father. In less than a year and a half, the pair re-arranged and re-sold the stations at an incredible $12 million profit. Next, Elizabeth moved with her husband to England, where she landed a key role in BSkyB, where her father shared the CEO position with Sam Chisholm at the time. Eventually, she took over the position of a Managing Director and during her tenure BSkyB became one of the most profitable companies in the UK. However, she went on to veer out on her own as a television and film producer in London, following a public quarrel with Chisholm. After a futile attempt to set up a film and production unit similar to BBC Films and Film4 Productions, Elisabeth successfully established Shine Limited in March 2001. She owns 80% of the company, with 15% of the shares are owned by Lord Alli and 5% owned by BskyB. In 2011, she sold Shine to News Corporation, but she is still Chairman and CEO at Shine.

Elisabeth Murdoch was born on August 22, 1968 in Sydney, Australia. Her father is Rupert Murdoch and her mother, Anna Murdoch Mann (born 1944). She was named after her philanthropist grandmother, Dame Elisabeth Murdoch. She attended schools in New York City and graduated from Vassar College.
She started her career as a manager of program acquisitions at her father's FX Networks, a cable television service based in Los Angeles, California. Operating as EP Communications, on 22 September 1994 Murdoch and her then husband, Elkin Kwesi Pianim, purchased a pair of NBC-affiliate television stations, KSBW and KSBY, in California on a US$35 million loan secured by her father. Within 18 months, the couple re-organised and re-sold the stations at a $12 million profit.[citation needed]
She moved with her first husband to England where Rupert Murdoch was running BSkyB after forcing a 1990 merger with BSB. The early years of BSkyB saw a haemorrhage of cash from Murdoch's News Corporation funds. To help turn around the financial fortunes of the company, New Zealand television executive Sam Chisholm was brought on board to manage the day-to-day operations and build the subscriber base, with Elisabeth Murdoch as his second-in-command and de facto apprentice. By the time Chisholm left the company, BSkyB was the most profitable company in the UK. As Managing Director, she oversaw BSkyB's ??12 million sponsorship of the troubled Millennium Dome, to the relief of its Cabinet overseer, Peter Mandelson. However, she also earned opprobrium after brokering her father's ??623.4 million bid for England's champion Manchester United team.[citation needed]
