Joe Dorrego, a 15-year veteran of Fox Corp., has been named as the new chief financial officer and chief operating officer of Fox News Media. Dorrego succeeds finance chief Amy Listerman, who will step down from her role on April 1.
Dorrego was most recently the chief investor relations officer and executive vice president of corporate initiatives at Fox Corp. He was previously the CFO of Fox Television Stations for four years, and served in a variety of senior finance, accounting and investor relations roles at 21st Century Fox for 11 years.
Listerman joined Fox News as CFO in April 2017 from Scripps Networks Interactive, where she served as the CFO and SVP of advertising sales and head of advertising sales data strategy. Previously, she worked at NBCUniversal, Goldman Sachs and Procter & Gamble.
Fox News is the crown jewel in what remains of Fox Corp. after last year’s mega $71.3 billion sale of Fox’s entertainment assets to Disney. A large portion of Fox Corp.’s operating income is generated by Fox News, which ended the first quarter of 2020 with the highest-rated quarter in the network’s history, according to ratings data from Nielsen Media Research.
