Dec 3 (Reuters) - News Corp named Robert Thomson as the chief executive of its new publishing company.

News Corp said in June it would separate its publishing and entertainment assets in response to shareholders who had pressed it to get rid of its troubled newspaper business.

Thomson is currently managing editor of the Wall Street Journal and editor-in-chief of its publisher Dow Jones & Co.
