Murdochs Divvy Up Disney Payday

Walt Disney Co.’s $71 billion takeover of 21st Century Fox assets was expected to turn the Murdoch family into one of the biggest voices at the entertainment giant. But the six Murdoch children — heirs to billionaire Fox founder Rupert Murdoch — will be paid cash and stock from the deal individually, according to people familiar with the situation. That means they may not be much of a force at Disney, even though the family as a whole will become one of the biggest investors.
