NEW YORK (AP) — NEW ROLE: News Corp.'s general counsel, Gerson Zweifach, has been designated the company's chief compliance officer, in charge of a review of its anti-corruption controls.

THE PROBE: The review began last summer after disclosures that journalists working for the British tabloid News of the World hacked into voicemails. Until June, the company's compliance probe had been headed by Joel Klein, who now runs News Corp.'s fledgling for-profit education business, Amplify.

PERSPECTIVE: CEO Rupert Murdoch says the anti-corruption review "is not based on any suspicion of wrongdoing" but rather "a forward-looking review" meant to improve its ethics procedures.
