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 left the White House in April, after rising to prominence as a close Trump adviser during the 2016 presidential campaign.

While her role at the White House was mostly behind the scenes, she was one of Mr Trump's most trusted aides and had worked for him at his real estate company before he was elected. Fox News, Fox Sports, and the broadcast network were not part of the deal but are being rebranded as Fox.

If the vote fails, it would deal a major blow to the nomination and throw the possibility of confirmation into serious doubt. Adding another potential issue into the timing, the Senate was previously scheduled to be out on Monday for Columbus Day.

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.

At New Fox, Hicks will succeed two executives who oversaw 21st Century Fox's communications when Fox News was beset by multiple sexual harassment allegations, including against its co-founder Roger Ailes and top star Bill O'Reilly. Porter was ultimately forced to resign. "Together they will define and project FOX's voice to our relevant communities", Dinh said.

It means she will supervise messaging at Mr Trump's favorite cable television network, the Rupert Murdoch-owned Fox News. O'Brien was previously chief of staff for Democrats Joe Biden and Robert Menendez. O'Brien joins Fox from General Electric, where he is a senior government affairs and policy executive.
