Fox Hires Ex-White House Communication Director Hope Hicks to Run PR

Former Trump advisor will join the post-Disney sale Fox as chief communications officer.

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.

Hicks assumes the position as the new Fox takes shape in the aftermath of the selling of most of 21st Century Fox to Disney.
