News Corp revenue falls as advertising sales stay weak
Aug 7 (Reuters) - News Corp, publisher of the Wall Street Journal, reported a 3 percent decline in quarterly revenue as advertising sales remained weak and subscription income fell.
Net income available to the company's shareholders was $12.0 million, or 2 cents per share, in the fourth quarter ended June 30 compared with a loss of $1.12 billion, or $1.94 per share, year earlier.
