Politico reports that Hicks's new position is officially executive vice president and communications director at Fox.

Hicks, 29, joined the Trump administration in January 2017 after working as press secretary and communications adviser to Trump's 2016 presidential campaign. Though Twitter users are assuming that she'll be doing PR for the network, Politico clarified, saying that she'll probably be focused on corporate communications as Fox and Disney work out exactly what their new merger entails.

She resigned in February, after serving as one of his most loyal and long-serving aides.

Other high-profile names who have bounced between Fox and the White House include former Fox News contributor John Bolton, who now serves as the president's national security advisor, and State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert, the former co-host of FNC's 2000-era afternoon program "The Big Story".
