SYDNEY -- News Corp. will cease print publication at more than 100 local Australian newspapers in a massive shakeup that will focus on online content, Rupert Murdoch's media conglomerate said on Thursday.

This move affects about 90% of the regional newspaper portfolio at subsidiary News Corp. Australia. Of the roughly 110 papers affected, 76 will transition to an all-digital format.
