No lie: Hope Hicks joins Fox as head of PR

Hope Hicks joins Fox as chief communications officer

Donald Trump's former communications chief Hope Hicks is taking on a similar role at a new Fox company, meaning she'll supervise messaging at her former boss's favourite television network.

The new Fox will include Fox News, Fox Sports, the Fox network and TV stations.

She will be based in Los Angeles.

Hicks may have legal exposure in the Russian Federation investigations, she has been interviewed by special counsel investigators. The $71 billion sale is likely to be completed early next year.

Viet Dinh, Fox's chief legal and policy officer, lauded Hicks for coordinating the administration's communications strategy and leading a team that coordinated messaging on economic issues, domestic policies and global affairs.

Hicks didn't have any political background when Trump asked her to join his presidential campaign as his communications director, but she quickly became one of the aides closest to him and was seen as the president's gatekeeper to the media.




Hicks had a mostly behind-the-scenes role at the White House.

It's not unusual for communications executive, trained in the crucible of Washington, D.C., to land jobs in Hollywood.

Hicks was formerly director of communications for the Trump Organization.

"So happy for my friend", she tweeted. O'Brien served as Joe Biden's chief of staff during a portion of his tenure in the Senate. "They are beyond lucky to have you and the East Coast misses you already".

The former model also reportedly acknowledged during the committee hearing that she told "white lies" on behalf of Trump, an admission that would cast doubt on future statements on behalf of the White House.
