Hope Hicks joins Fox as chief communications officer

Hope Hicks, who left her role as White House communications director back in March, has resurfaced as executive vice president and chief communications officer for Fox.

At the time, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said the resignation was not related to Ms Hicks's testimony. She went on to work on Trump's transition team before officially joining the White House communications team in January 2017.

New Fox will include the Fox broadcast network, its sports unit FS1, and Fox News, which is America's leading cable news network.

She announced that she was leaving the White House in February, a day after being interviewed for nine hours by a House panel looking into claims of Russian interference in the 2016 election. Before that she worked for Hiltzik Strategies, a public relations firm that handled PR for Trump's businesses, including Trump Tower. Porter was ultimately forced to resign. "Together they will define and project Fox's voice to our relevant communities", Dinh told Variety. Earlier this summer, Bill Shine, the former co-president of Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network, joined the White House staff as deputy chief of staff for communications. So happy for my friend.

Dinh also announced the hiring of Danny O'Brien from General Electric as head of government affairs for the new company. O'Brien previously served as chief of staff to Senators Joe Biden (D-Del.), Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) and Robert Torricelli (D-N.J.).
