In the Oct. 20 edition of Barron's, News Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch said his son James may be the best candidate to take over U.K/Ireland satellite TV powerhouse British Sky Broadcasting.

Murdoch told the financial publication that James "succeeded during his tenure by finally turning a profit at STAR. I'm biased, but James is the best I can see."

He added, "Nobody is more qualified to take over a multichannel platform than James, with the exception of Charles Ergen of EchoStar. But, of course, Charlie isn't available."

James Murdoch, 30, is chief executive of the Hong Kong-based Asian TV service STAR. Last year, he directed the News Corp. company to its first operating profit. He has been rumored to be the top candidate for the chief executive role at BSkyB, which is being vacated by Tony Ball.
