Former Trump aide Hope Hicks to work at Fox company

Hope Hicks served in the White House as communications director and Trump’s strategic communications director from Hope Hicks joins Fox as chief communications officer
Andrew Cummings | 10 October, 2018, 03:07

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

Former White House Communications Director Hope Hicks exits Air Force One behind U.S. President Donald Trump after they arrived at the John Glenn Columbus International Airport in Columbus, Ohio, U.S., August 4, 2018.

Hicks' new employer, informally known as New Fox, is still taking shape.

While not a direct swap of assets, the tradeoff between the White House and Fox has a certain air of symmetry about it.

Liverpool 0-0 Manchester City: Highlights & Match Report
Milner has become a key cog in Liverpool's system this season, and has started all but one Premier League match this season. They had one shot on target. "We stood strong and showed great mental strength", said Stones after the game.

Hicks graduated from SMU in 2010 and got her start with the Trump family in 2012 when Ivanka Trump needed public-relations help as she expanded her clothing line. It seems to deepen the relationship between Fox News and the White House, where former Fox News executive Bill Shine is the communications director.

This new position is due to the recent sale of 21st Century Fox to Disney.

Those deals are expected to be completed in the first half of 2019, pending regulatory approval. Hicks will report to Viet Dinh, Fox chief legal and policy officer. He's a longtime Washington hand who most recently worked at General Electric.

She announced her resignation from the White House the day after she refused to answer key questions from the House Intelligence Committee and at the end of a rocky month during which she was under fire for mishandling the White House response to spousal abuse allegations against Rob Porter, Trump's staff secretary whom Hicks reportedly had been dating.
