Freudenstein, 41, who began his career as a lawyer, has been chief operating officer of British Sky Broadcasting (Sky) in Brit- ain since 2000. He first joined Sky in 1999 and has worked for News Cor- poration and related compa- nies since 1994. At Sky, Freudenstein man- aged the successful bids for English Premier League football coverage in 2003 and 2006. He also negotiated a range of con- tent deals with all of the major Hollywood studios for film and television programming and channel distribution. He led the launch of Sky's high definition service earlier this year and has been the chief architect of the company's de- velopment strategies, includ- ing the launch of mobile and broadband products in Decem- ber 2005. He also led a successful re- structure of Sky's customer op- erations group, which includes the 8000 employee call centre and field workers that manages relationships with more than eight million residential cus- tomers. Prior to joining Sky, Freuden- stein worked in a number of senior roles at Foxtel in Austral- ia, having helped negotiate the joint venture to establish the Foxtel business with Telstra. He was a frontrunner for the managing director's job at the ABC, which went to Fairfax's Mark Scott. Freudenstein pulled out in May over remuneration issues. Changing of guard at News Ltd’s digital media Ray Smith (pictured), 85, president of the New Zealand Newspaper Publishers Associa- tion for 11 years and the New Zealand Press Association news agency for 15 years, died in Ro- torua on June 26. Smith began his career at the then Morning Post in Ro- torua as advertising manager after returning from war service in the Middle East and Italy, the NZPA reported. He later co-founded the Rotorua-based United Publish- ing and Printing company with newspapers including The Daily Post (Rotorua), Wanganui Chronicle, Levin Chronicle, Hawke's Bay Herald- Tribune, and the Napier Daily Telegraph. He was the company's gen- eral manager, managing director and then chairman. When Auckland-based newspaper owner Wilson and Horton Ltd bought the company, Smith remained as a director until retirement in 1994. Smith helped to lead introduction of new technology into the New Zealand newspaper industry. In 1964 Smith's Daily Post and Nelson publisher, Rex Lucas, were the first to introduce web-offset printing. These two publishers also were first to install typesetting equipment known as justowriters which replaced hot metal linotype machines and were forerunners of photo type-setting. Smith also chaired a committee overseeing computerisation at the NZPA in 1978. The news agency's journalists were the first in the coun- try to replace typewriters with computer keyboards and screens. Death of a news man
