Hope Hicks named Fox’s new communications chief”

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.

The former model joined Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and was considered one of his most trusted advisors, with broad access to the Oval Office.

New Fox is the company that will remain after 21st Century Fox completes it's sale to the Walt Disney Company. Trump is an outspoken fan of Fox News, often promoting their programming on his Twitter feed. She succeeded Scaramucci as White House communications director shortly after his volatile 10-day stint came to a close in late July 2017. He is known as such an avid viewer of Fox that anchors and political guests have even sometimes sought to address Trump directly from its programs in attempts to influence his thinking. The president has given Fox News more interviews than any other media outlet by far - 33 to Fox News in total, according to CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller. "So happy for my friend", she tweeted.

Fox today also announced it has tapped General Electric senior government affairs and policy executive Danny O'Brien to serve as exec VP and head of government relations.

The new company is expected to get an official name and begin operations early next year.

The announcement that she will take a role at Fox is the latest in a series of appointments 21st Century Fox has been making in anticipation of a major reorganisation.
