Power Center at New Fox Shifts From New York to Los Angeles

Fox today also announced it has tapped General Electric senior government affairs and policy executive Danny O'Brien to serve as exec VP and head of government relations. Ms. Hicks will officially start as executive vice president and chief communications officer when the Disney deal closes, which is expected to occur during the first half of next year, a 21st Century Fox spokesman said. John Nallen, the new company's chief operating officer, however, is likely to work out of New York City.

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".

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. 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.

Former Clinton White House press secretary Dee Dee Myers now serves as Warner Bros.' executive vice president for corporate communications and public affairs.
