Liberty Media Corp. said this morning that it would split into two companies, dividing its Starz unit from its investment portfolio, clearing the way for the premium-TV channel business to be merged with another company. The Wall Street Journal reports that the planned split is the latest in a long series of restructurings announced by cable pioneer John Malone’s business empire.
