Hope Hicks Hire Takes Fox Veterans by Surprise

Hope Hicks served in the White House as communications director and Trump’s strategic communications director from

The new Fox will include Fox News, Fox Sports, the Fox network and TV stations. She also enjoyed close friendships with other officials such as White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and the president's daughter, Ivanka Trump.

Hicks, 29, is best known as one of President Donald Trump's most trusted aides. National Security Adviser John Bolton was a Fox News contributor who frequently appeared on television before Mr. Trump plucked him to lead the National Security Council.

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. Before that she worked for Hiltzik Strategies, a public relations firm that handled PR for Trump's businesses, including Trump Tower.

Fox is reorganizing following the sale of most of Twenty-First Century Fox's entertainment assets to the Walt Disney Co.

Those deals are expected to be completed in the first half of 2019, pending regulatory approval.

But communications executives cycling out of the White House and into high-profile positions at media companies is not unusual.

Hicks' hiring was announced Monday by Viet Dinh, chief legal and policy officer. 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.
