It is."

How Did Their Relationship Begin?

In 2008, Smith lost her husband, Chester Smith, a country singer and radio and TV executive. 66-year-old, she said she and Murdoch bonded over their media industry knowledge. In her line of work, Murdoch owns Fox News and The Wall Street Journal. It is no coincidence that Smith is related to Rupert's brother, Christopher.
