Model turned communications director for both candidate Trump and President Trump, Hope Hicks has been named Vice President and Chief Communications officer for Fox.
The announcement was made Monday by Fox’s chief legal and policy officer Viet Dinh, according to Variety.
Hicks left the White House in February after she testified to the House Intelligence Committee that she told white lies “in the course of her duties,” CNN reported at the time, that “there was no indication,” her resignation and her testimony before the committee were related.
Hicks joins Danny O’Brien, who will be the Vice President and head of government relations according to Variety, O’Brien comes to Fox from GE, and also worked previously for three senators, Joe Biden, Robert Menendez, and Robert Torriceeli.
Dinh in his statement to staff wrote, “Hope and Danny are proven leaders and world-class public affairs professionals. Together they will define and project Fox’s voice to our relevant communities.”
CNN reports that this move comes as FOX, who announced their new all caps name along with naming the new CEO, Lachlan Murdoch, the son of Rupert Murdoch, is in the “midst of a major corporate transaction.”
Disney has purchased most of the 21st Century entities, but not Fox News, Fox Sports “or the company’s broadcast or TV stations,” the new assets will be spun off into a smaller version of Fox.
Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders expressed her delight in Hicks’ appointment via Twitter.
Hicks will be moving to Los Angels as result of the job, she offered no comment after Monday’s announcement.
