Hicks, 29, joined the Trump administration in January 2017 after working as press secretary and communications adviser to Trump's 2016 presidential campaign. Trump is an outspoken fan of Fox News, often promoting their programming on his Twitter feed.
During the nine-hour interview, Ms Hicks acknowledged that she had occasionally told "white lies" for Mr Trump, but she said she had not lied about anything relevant to the Russian Federation investigation. She succeeds Julie Henderson, who informed the company earlier this year that she would not transition to New Fox.
Hope Hicks has landed a new job. "Together they will define and project FOX's voice to our relevant communities", Dinh said. The president months ago hired former Fox News co-president Bill Shine as his Deputy Chief of Staff for Communications. O'Brien previously served as chief of staff to Senators Joe Biden (D-Del.), Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) and Robert Torricelli (D-N.J.).
The former model also reportedly acknowledged during the committee hearing that she told "white lies" on behalf of Trump, an admission that would cast doubt on future statements on behalf of the White House.
Dinh announced her appointment Monday, along with that of Danny O'Brien, a former senior government affairs and policy executive from General Electric, who will become Fox's EVP and head of government relations.
