In this role, Collins will oversee the company's Ad Sales efforts across the company's portfolio of brands and platforms, including FOX Entertainment, Tubi, FOX Sports, FS1, FS2, FOX Deportes, and FOX News Media, which includes FOX NewsChannel and FOX Business Network.

"I want to thank Marianne for her many contributions to FOX and congratulate her on a phenomenal career," said Murdoch.

Jeff has established himself as a leader and an innovator and we are confident that he will continue to build value for our advertising partners across all of our platforms."
