Gabriela Baczynska of Reuters wrote Wednesday that News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch expects to receive approval from the Bancroft family that controls Dow Jones & Co., the parent of The Wall Street Journal, to purchase the company in two to three weeks.
Baczynska wrote, “‘Everything is done. We are just waiting for a final approval of the Bancroft family,’ Murdoch told Reuters during a visit to Warsaw on Wednesday.
“‘The final approval is in the next two, three week’s time or not at all,’ he said.
