One of Rupert Murdoch’s children has announced no interest in succeeding the 82-year-old chief of News Corp.

"In a Q&A session this morning, Elisabeth Murdoch told the Edinburgh TV Festival, ‘I really harbor no ambition for that top job,’ " reports Deadline.com.

The story adds, "In today’s Q&A, she said the Murdoch family had met to talk about the future of the company, but did not disclose what was said."

The article also says, "The Shine chairman’s comment came the day after she delivered the MacTaggart Lecture at the industry gathering in the Scottish capital. … She also came out on the side of the people when, contradicting something [her brother, James Murdoch] said in his own MacTaggart in 2009, she said she was a supporter of the BBC."
