Born in Melbourne, Australia, Rupert Murdoch's interest in media began at an early age. His father had worked for years in the newspaper industry and Rupert Murdoch quickly became involved in the school newspaper. Through his father's guidance, Murdoch began to work part-time at the Melbourne Herald. Murdoch went on to attend the University of Oxford. Once his father died, he returned to Australia and ran the family's company, News Limited. Before long, Rupert Murdoch had managed to quickly grow the newspapers and purchased smaller papers in the region. In an effort to increase sales, he created the modern-day idea of the tabloid newspaper. Later on, he purchased more publishing, newspaper and music companies in the United Kingdom.
