After a stint in corporate communications at Fox, former White House communications director Hope Hicks is returning to the Trump administration as a senior advisor, The New York Times and Bloomberg reported on Thursday.

President Donald Trump has a well-documented love of Fox News, known to spend hours watching (and sometimes live-tweeting) Fox programming and even calling his favorite Fox hosts, like Sean Hannity and Lou Dobbs, for advice.

Since Trump took office, his administration has also hired over a dozen current and former Fox News reporters and contributors to serve in both high-level cabinet and deputy chief of staff posts, as ambassadors, and in communications roles at federal agencies, according to an analysis by Matt Gertz, a senior fellow at the liberal media watchdog Media Matters.

And some former administration officials — including Hicks — have left the White House to work at Fox Corp., the parent company of Fox News, or like former press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, have become on-air commentators.

Trump’s cozy relationship with the network has created a well-oiled revolving door between Fox and the Trump administration.

Former White House communications director Hope Hicks is coming back to the White House after being a senior public relations executive at Fox for over a year.

The New York Times and Bloomberg News reported on Thursday that Hicks, who left her post as Trump’s communications director almost two years ago in February 2018, is coming back to the White House.

After working as the head of all corporate communications at the then newly-restructured Fox from October 2018 to February 2020, she is returning as a senior advisor working with the White House’s political director and top advisor Jared Kushner, Bloomberg said.
