Clive Milner to leave News International
News International today announces that Clive Milner, Chief Operating Officer, is leaving after 30 years in the company.
Clive has successfully delivered many of NI’s most ambitious programmes and also represented News International within the industry with great professionalism.

He joined News International as a young man and epitomises a culture in which talent and hard work can rise to a commanding role at the top of the company, as he has done. I and my colleagues will miss him.”
Rupert Murdoch, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of News Corporation, said: “Clive has been my colleague at News International for 30 years and in that time I have had great regard for the skill with which he helped create the successful company we see today. Clive is a professional newspaperman of the highest calibre who has served both his company and the whole industry in the UK with distinction. We all wish him well in the future.”
