Hope Hicks tapped to head communications for New Fox

Hope Hicks tapped to head communications for New Fox

She announced that she was leaving the White House in February, a day after being interviewed for nine hours by a House panel looking into claims of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Former White House Communications Director Hope Hicks exits Air Force One behind U.S. President Donald Trump after they arrived at the John Glenn Columbus International Airport in Columbus, Ohio, U.S., August 4, 2018.

Hicks will move to Los Angeles to start her new role once the sale is finalized with Disney. A former Ralph Lauren model, she also modeled a dress from the Ivanka Trump line.

Her soon-to-be colleagues are already welcoming her with open arms and her former co-workers are offering up congratulations.

Hicks, 29, will join New Fox - which includes Fox, Fox News, Fox Business & FS1 - as EVP and Chief Communications Officer, according to a press release.




Mr. Trump's fondness for Fox News is well-storied, with the president frequently tweeting out quotes from his favorite hosts and guests.

Lachlan Murdoch, son of Rupert Murdoch, will take the reigns at New Fox as chairman and CEO. The other was Anna Perez, who served as press secretary to former First Lady Barbara Bush and as deputy assistant to President George W. Bush during his time in office.

Numerous members of the public relations staffs at network TV news divisions have White House and Beltway positions on their resumes.

New Fox is expected to emerge once Disney completes its Twentieth-Century Fox takeover.
