Raj Shah, who served as deputy press secretary to president Trump before exiting this January to lead the media group at Ballard Partners, has come on board at Fox Corp. as a senior vice president.

Shah will join former White House communications director Hope Hicks, who is chief communications officer and executive vice president at Fox.

While working for Trump, Shah made appearances on Fox News in which he criticized Hillary Clinton and countered statements about the president, such as Stormy Daniels’ claims that she had an affair with Trump.

Before his time at the White House, Shah was research director and deputy communications director at the Republican National Committee. He also served as managing director at America Rising, a political action committee that produces opposition research on Democratic Party members.

In his new post, Shah will report to Fox chief legal and policy officer Viet Dinh.
