Fox hires Hope Hicks ex Trump aide as executive VP and top communications officer

A company known as "New Fox" is being created as 21st Century Fox reorganises with the sale of assets to Disney, to be completed next year.

The Republican was made communications director for the Trump administration in September 2017, but announced her resignation in February after testifying before the House Intelligence Committee that she'd made "white lies" on behalf of Trump. She served as White House communications director and director of strategic communications for Trump until she left in April of this year.

Julie Henderson and Nathaniel Brown, the communications team at 21st Century Fox, are not moving to the new company.

Fox Chief Legal and Policy Officer Viet Dinh released a statement about the decision to hire Hicks and Danny O'Brien.

During the nine-hour interview, Ms Hicks acknowledged that she had occasionally told "white lies" for Mr Trump, but she said she had not lied about anything relevant to the Russian Federation investigation. So happy for my friend.

Trump, meanwhile, tapped former Fox News contributor John Bolton to be his national security advisor in March. "They are beyond lucky to have you".
