|Vinciquerra stepping down at Fox Networks Group|
INSTRUMENTAL FIGURE: In N.Y., Bill Carter wrote Vinciquerra over the past decade has been "instrumental in most of the biggest financial deals involving News Corp's television operations, including a host of lucrative retransmission deals with cable operators and contracts for rights to sports events for the Fox network as well as Fox's regional sports cable channels." His departure is "being described by both sides as completely voluntary," with Vinciquerra indicating that he "decided to leave because he wants to pursue some undetermined entrepreneurial ventures." His name "circulated last year in a potential management role at NBC Universal after Comcast completes its acquisition of that company" (NYTIMES.com, 1/6).
