Hope Hicks joins Fox as chief communications officer

Seth Meyers Reveals Question He Would

Months after leaving the White House, Hope Hicks will head to Fox to become its new chief communications officer.

New Fox is the company that will remain after 21st Century Fox completes it's sale to the Walt Disney Company.

Trump gives the bulk of his television interviews to Fox News. She worked to defend him when charges of domestic abuse against his two former wives emerged.

She will be based in Los Angeles, according to an announcement by Viet Dinh, the company's chief legal and policy officer.

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

During her tenure at the White House, which ended in February after she voluntarily abdicated the post, Hicks garnered a reputation among reporters for providing a window of accessibility into an administration known for its clandestine and often unpredictable moves. It seems to deepen the relationship between Fox News and the White House, where former Fox News executive Bill Shine is the communications director. O'Brien served as Joe Biden's chief of staff during a portion of his tenure in the Senate.

President Donald Trump waves while standing with Hope Hicks outside the Oval Office of the White House on Thursday, March 29, 2018.

"So happy for my friend", she tweeted.

Along with Hicks' new appointment, Fox also stated Monday that Danny O'Brien will join as executive vice president and head of government relations. "They are beyond lucky to have you and the East Coast misses you already".
