A former President Donald Trump White House spokesman is reportedly joining Fox News’ parent corporation as a senior vice president.
CNN’s Brian Stelter reported that Raj Shah, who worked in the Trump White House as deputy press secretary until earlier this year, has joined Fox Corp. as a senior VP. Shah would join former Trump aide Hope Hicks in the executive suite of the corporation, which formed earlier this year following Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox.
Both Hicks and Shah report to Viet Dinh, Fox’s chief legal and policy officer, who himself reports to CEO Lachlan Murdoch.
The news was first reported by The Washington Post’s Josh Dawsey.
