Fox Hires Former White House Communications Director Hope Hicks

Former top Trump aide and confidante Hope Hicks has landed at FOX as the company's new chief communications officer, further strengthening ties between a White House and media empire that some might say resembles a revolving door. New Fox includes 21st Century Fox television stations - including Fox News.

According to a press release, Hicks will join "New Fox", the company left following Twenty-First Century Fox's upcoming merger with Disney.

The former model joined Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and was considered one of his most trusted advisors, with broad access to the Oval Office.

She will be based in Los Angeles.

The Islamic Republic exported 1.1 million barrels per day (bpd) of crude in that seven-day period, Refinitiv Eikon data showed. Iran accounts for 10% of India's crude oil imports, making it the second largest importer of Iranian oil behind China.

This summer he named former Fox News co-president Bill Shine as assistant and deputy chief of staff for communications. A 22-year Fox News veteran and a loyal soldier to the late Roger Ailes, Shine had been with the organization since its launch. And for the better part of a year, former White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci was the co-host of Fox Business Network's "Wall Street Week", which has since been rebranded "Maria Baritromo's Wall Street".

As Hicks resigned, expressing gratitude to Trump, he heaped praise on her, saying she was "as smart and thoughtful as they come, a truly great person".

Hope Hicks is moving out of the White House and into the boardroom. He was most recently an executive at General Electric. So happy for my friend. O'Brien has previously been chief of staff to three Democratic senators: Joe Biden (Del.), Robert Menendez (N.J.) and Robert Torricelli (N.J.).
