Murdock, MCI set on-line venture

News Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch said his company and MCI Communications Corp. will unveil a "very, very big" on-line services joint venture later this month, U.S. entertainment magazine Television Digest reported yesterday.

Arrangements aren't final, Mr. Murdoch said, but the venture will likely be announced before the Fox Broadcast Co. affiliates meeting in Los Angeles on June 22. MCI officials have been briefing News Corp. executives in the United Kingdom.
