Hope Hicks has landed a new job. The former Trump White House Communications Director had announced her retirement in February, one day after testifying before Congress she had lied for the president.


Hicks will go to work for FOX, as its Executive Vice President and Chief Communications Officer, according to The Hill. 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.
