Former Trump aide Hicks joins Fox as communications chief

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.

Before that she worked for the Trump Organization as director of communications. New Fox includes 21st Century Fox television stations - including Fox News.

She will report to Fox's chief legal and policy officer Viet Dinh, and will be based in Los Angeles, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported. So happy for my friend.

Apple tells Congress it found no signs of hacking attack
Bloomberg said it stands by its reporting, even as the Department of Homeland Security and the UK's National Cyber Security Centre backed up Apple and Amazon's denials .

The news about Hicks' new gig was signal-boosted by White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who tweeted, "Fox won't find anyone smarter or more talented than Hope Hicks". According to The Cut, she's got a brand-new job at Fox, which will put her out on the West Coast, far, far away from the machinations of the Capitol. It was paired with announcement that Julie Henderson, a 12-year veteran of the company, would step down as head of corporate communications when the Disney deal closes, along with top lieutenant Nathaniel Brown. Additionally, Danny O'Brien, who now serves as a senior government affairs and policy executive at General Electric, will join Fox as an executive vice president and head of government relations.

Key executives had not expected Henderson to continue with New Fox, whose assets will be roughly a third of the size of the current company's.
