Trump Mistress Hope Hicks Hired As Communications Chief At Fox, Relocating To L.A.

Former White House communications director and longtime Donald Trump aide Hope Hicks has been named evp and chief communications officer of the new Fox company.

The company also announced on Monday that Danny O’Brien will serve as EVP and head of government relations for the company that will remain after Disney purchases most of 21st Century Fox’s assets.
“Hope and Danny are proven leaders and world-class public affairs professionals,” said Viet Dinh chief legal and policy officer in the announcement. “Together they will define and project FOX’s voice to our relevant communities.”
Hicks, who joined the Trump campaign early on and was considered the president’s most-trusted advisor, left the White House at the end of March. At the time, Hicks did not announce her plans for the future, though some have speculated that she could return to the Trump administration in some capacity.
Monday’s announcement did not include comment from Hicks, who rarely speaks to the press even as she served as the primary conduit between the president and the media during her time on the campaign and in the White House.
Hicks, who returned to New York after leaving the White House, will be based in Los Angeles for her new role.
