Hope Hick, former White House communications director, is the new head of corporate communications for the new Fox corporation, which includes Fox broadcasting, Fox Sports, and Fox News, Variety reports.

A company known as "New Fox" is being created as 21st Century Fox reorganises with the sale of assets to Disney, to be completed next year.

Hicks assumes the position as the new Fox takes shape in the aftermath of the selling of most of 21st Century Fox to Disney. She previously worked for the Trump Organization, became Trump's campaign press secretary in 2015, joined the White House as director of strategic communications in January 2017 and was promoted to White House communications director that August.

Trump reportedly dictated a misleading public statement released by Hicks characterizing the encounter as a "short, introductory meeting" in which the participants "primarily discussed a program about the adoption of Russian children".

Hicks, one of Trump's longest-serving and most trusted aides, resigned from her White House job earlier this year. The executives, Julie Henderson and Nathaniel Brown, are not joining New Fox.

Hicks' hiring was announced Monday by Viet Dinh, chief legal and policy officer.

"So happy for my friend", she tweeted. "They are beyond lucky to have you and the East Coast misses you already".

The company also named Danny O'Brien head of government relations. O'Brien served as Joe Biden's chief of staff during a portion of his tenure in the Senate.
