Washington D.C. [USA], Jun 28 (ANI): Former co-president of Fox News, Bill Shine has accepted the post of deputy chief of staff for communications in the White House, multiple sources have told ABC News.
Earlier on Wednesday, multiple news outlets reported that Shine reportedly met with US President Donald Trump about the position.
A formal announcement on the same is expected later this week.
Sources said that there are at least three others, along with Shine, who have been discussing on the position of the communication director with White House officials.
In May 2017, Shine exited Fox News in the wake of allegations of sexual harassment made against him by network employees against former chairman Roger Ailes.
Although, Shine was never accused of harassment personally, questions were raised about his handling of the allegations, as per the report.
The post of the communication director fell vacant after Hope Hicks, one of Trump's longest-serving and closest aides resigned earlier in March this year.
As per sources, Trump has acted as his own communications director since Hicks' resignation. (ANI)
