Hope Hicks is returning to the White House as a counselor to President Trump and senior adviser.

Trump’s former communications director will work as a senior adviser for Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner’s office, the White House confirmed Thursday.

Hicks is likely to return to the White House sometime in early March, White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said, though she noted that “details are still being determined.”

One of the president’s longest serving aides, Hicks stepped down from her position in February 2018. She has since been working as an executive president and chief communications officer at Fox, which operates properties like Fox News and Fox Sports. 

Hicks was one of the president’s closest advisers dating back to the launch of his campaign in 2015 and worked in the press office at the White House, including as communications director.

She is the latest Trump official to cycle between the administration and Fox. While Hicks did not work for Fox News, a number of former staffers have transitioned between the two.
