President Donald Trump's former communications chief Hope Hicks has been hired as communications director at the newly revamped Fox company. Earlier this summer, Bill Shine, the former co-president of Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network, joined the White House staff as deputy chief of staff for communications.

Hicks, a former model, worked on President Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign as press secretary and left the administration in February after admitting to telling "white lies" on behalf of the White House in testimony before Congress.

It's not immediately clear how much of a role Hicks will have at the New York-based Fox News, where communications has been run for several years by Irena Briganti.

While not a direct swap of assets, the tradeoff between the White House and Fox has a certain air of symmetry about it.

Kavanaugh fight sharpens the stakes for midterms
Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, September 27. US President Donald Trump says women "were in many ways stronger than the men" in Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's favour.

Mr Shine resigned from Fox News a year ago as the network's handling of sexual misconduct scandals came under scrutiny, though Mr Shine himself was not accused of any harassment. Hicks will report to Viet Dinh, Fox chief legal and policy officer.

Along with Hicks' new appointment, Fox also stated Monday that Danny O'Brien will join as executive vice president and head of government relations. She succeeded Scaramucci as White House communications director shortly after his volatile 10-day stint came to a close in late July 2017. "They are beyond lucky to have you". He was most recently an executive at General Electric.

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