Former Trump Aide Hope Hicks Lands Job as Communications Director for Fox

Hope Hicks

Hope Hicks, the former communications director of U.S. President Donald Trump, has been appointed as communications chief at Fox, the company being spun off from Twenty-First Century Fox's merger with Walt Disney Co. She'll now join the company that runs Fox News, a conservative TV station that has been uniquely friendly to Trump among other cable networks.

At the time of her departure, Hicks was one of Trump's longest-running advisors.

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".

The appointment of Hicks highlights the ties between the Trump White House and Rupert Murdoch's media empire.

What next for Khabib Nurmagomedov & Conor McGregor after UFC 229 turmoil?
There were no arrests after the post-fight melee which followed Conor McGregor's UFC defeat, Las Vegas Police have revealed. McGregor now appears to have responded to Khabib via Twitter, hinting that a possible rematch may be in store.

Hope Hicks has landed a new job.

Fox has always been a bi-coastal media conglomerate - Fox News is run from NY, for example, while Fox Sports and Fox Broadcasting have been led from Los Angeles - but Rupert Murdoch, the company's founder and longtime governing executive, largely managed affairs from a skyscraper on Manhattan's Avenue of the Americas (though he is known to have a vineyard on the West Coast). O'Brien served as Joe Biden's chief of staff during a portion of his tenure in the Senate.

The hiring of Hicks is sure to further fuel criticism that Fox News has become largely a mouthpiece for Trump.

"So happy for my friend", she tweeted. O'Brien is a longtime Washington hand who was staff director of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and chief of staff to three senators.
