Fox’s entertainment chairman Peter Rice is adding oversight of News Corp.’s FX and Fox Movie Channel, and Fox Sports chairman David Hill will oversee News Corp.’s 19 regional sports networks, as well as Fuel TV, Speed Network and Fox Soccer Channel, B&C reports, confirming a report from earlier in the week.

Both will report to Fox Networks Group Chairman and CEO Tony Vinciquerra. Rich Battista, who had overseen the channels as the president of Fox National Cable Networks, is talking to the company about a new role, and News Corp. said he is a “valued member.”
