(CNBC) — Months after leaving the White House, Hope Hicks will head to Fox to become its new chief communications officer.
Hicks, 29, is best known as one of President Donald Trump’s most trusted aides. She served as White House communications director and director of strategic communications for Trump until she left in April of this year.
The company, which will be spun off after Disney completes its $71 billion takeover of 21st Century Fox, will be home to Fox News, the conservative-leaning news and commentary network. Trump is an outspoken fan of Fox News, often promoting their programming on his Twitter feed.
