Having moved up through the Disney ranks to head of Disney Channels Worldwide and then a short tenure running the Disney Studio, Rich Ross is now taking over chairman Elisabeth Murdoch's TV and production company Shine America as CEO, reports Variety.

In 2011 News Corp. acquired her ten-year-old Shine Group, which has 28 operating companies; Elisabeth Murdoch is assumed to be readying herself for wider responsibilties at her father Rupert's empire.

Ross takes over for departing Carl Fennessy, who is returning to Australia after two years supervising the U.S. Shine Group.
