Wendi Morduch, with her husband Rupert Morduch, chairman of News Corporation.

Wendi Morduch, is a  Chinese born American and wife of News Corporation chairman Rupert Morduch.

Born in Xuzhou, Jiangsu, she was originally named Wenge Deng. She is the third of four children to engineers.

In 1987 Deng met an American businessman and his wife, Jake and Joyce Cherry, who had temporarily relocated to China to help build a factory. Deng asked the couple for tutoring lessons in English, which Joyce eventually provided. In 1988, she abandoned her medical studies and travelled to the United States to study, with the Cherrys sponsoring Deng's student visa. Deng enrolled at California State University, Northridge, where she studied economics and was among the top 1% of students.

After studying at Cal State Northridge, Deng chose to attend business school at Yale University.

Upon graduation from Yale, she began searching for a job, and met Bruce Campbell via a mutual friend; Campbell at the time oversaw finance and corporate development at the Fox TV branch in Los Angeles. He subsequently offered Deng an internship at News Corp subsidiary, Star TV, in Hong Kong, which developed into a full time junior executive position.

In 1997, Deng met Rupert Murdoch at a company party in Hong Kong. Deng and Murdoch married in 1999, less than three weeks after his divorce from ex-wife Anna Maria Torv Murdoch Mann was finalized. They live in Manhattan with their two daughters: Grace Helen Murdoch (born 2001) and Chloe Murdoch (born 2005).
