News Corp. confirmed Monday that its chairman, Rupert Murdoch, has prostate cancer and will receive radiation therapy in a month. Murdoch, 69, found out about the disease during routine medical tests last week in Los Angeles. News Corp. said the cancer is "low grade," and Murdoch's prognosis is very good, requiring no change in his work schedule. "The treatment will last several weeks and his doctors are confident it will eliminate the problem," News Corp. officials said.

Murdoch, 27, had been interim co-chairman of Star, which broadcasts to an area containing about half the world's population. He will be based in Hong Kong and replaces Gareth Chang, 55, a former aerospace executive who resigned in February after 18 months at Star.
