New Fox hires Hope Hicks as head of communications

  • Hope Hicks

Hicks will replace former executive vice president and chief communications officer for 21st Century Fox, Julie Henderson, who chose not to transition to the new Fox corporation, along with senior vice president Nathaniel Brown.

Hicks was a key Donald Trump aide throughout his campaign and at the White House until she resigned earlier this year.


Two former employees of Fox News, the conservative-leaning cable channel whose commentators offer the staunchest support of Trump and his policies, are now part of the administration: Former co-president Bill Shine now has Hicks' former White House post, and former anchor Heather Nauert is a spokesperson for the State Department. Although he is famous for the term "fake news", Trump has continually supported Fox News and its reporting. The newly spun-off Fox corporation will include Fox News. She worked for Trump at his company before he was elected.

In July, Disney outbid Comcast Corp with a $71.3 billion offer to buy some assets from Fox. The company also named Danny O'Brien as their Executive Vice President and Head of Government Relations. 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.). So happy for my friend. 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. "They are beyond lucky to have you".
