Hope Hicks, the former White House communications director and director of strategic communications, has been named the chief communications officer of Fox. Trump is an outspoken fan of Fox News, often promoting their programming on his Twitter feed. FOX is the new company forged from assets remaining after the 21st Century Fox and Disney merger, and will include Fox Entertainment, Fox Sports, and of course, Fox News.

It's not unusual for communications executive, trained in the crucible of Washington, D.C., to land jobs in Hollywood. A 22-year Fox News veteran and a loyal soldier to the late Roger Ailes, Shine had been with the organization since its launch.

Hicks graduated from SMU in 2010 and got her start with the Trump family in 2012 when Ivanka Trump needed public-relations help as she expanded her clothing line. She succeeded Scaramucci as White House communications director shortly after his volatile 10-day stint came to a close in late July 2017.

Post prints empty column for Saudi writer missing in Turkey
The Washington Post put out a blank column in its Friday edition after the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi . Turkish officials disputed the account of Saudi consulate officials regarding his disappearance.

Hicks assumes the position as the new Fox takes shape in the aftermath of the selling of most of 21st Century Fox to Disney. "Together they will define and project FOX's voice to our relevant communities", Dinh said.

The appointment was cheered by White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who tweeted Monday morning, "Fox won't find anyone smarter or more talented than Hope Hicks". O'Brien has previously been chief of staff to three Democratic senators: Joe Biden (Del.), Robert Menendez (N.J.) and Robert Torricelli (N.J.). So happy for my friend.
