Lachlan Murdoch, 46-year-old executive chairman at 21Century Fox, will become CEO of the revamped media company following completion of the $66B sale of its movie studio, cable networks and overseas businesses to Walt Disney Co. Family patriarch Rupert Murdoch meanwhile will serve as co-chairman.
Scott, who has served as president of programming for Fox News and Fox Business since June 2017, said she "is "incredibly honored and humbled to take on this new role and very thankful to Rupert and Lachlan for their leadership and confidence in me to run FOX News".
Scott takes the role after overseeing a shake-up of Fox News' prime-time lineup past year.
Fox agreed previous year to sell the bulk of its film and TV assets to Walt Disney in a $52.4 billion deal.
Despite the changes, the new Fox News hosts have kept the network atop the cable news ratings race, with Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson and a surging Laura Ingraham consistently in the Top-4 spots in cable news lately along with MSNBC's Rachel Maddow.
The Murdochs are expected to spearhead the new, slimmer Fox once the deal shakes out.
