They announced their engagement in the wedding section of the London Times newspaper, owned by Murdoch’s News Corp.
It will be the fourth marriage for Murdoch, 84, and the first for Hall, 59, although she lived with the Rolling Stones frontman for many years.
Rumors of their relationship have circulated for months, and the couple were a presence at the Golden Globe awards in Beverly Hills.
A spokesman quoted by the BBC said: “They have loved these past months together” and were “thrilled to be getting married and excited about their future.”
Social media was excited about the snark potential.
