President Donald Trump named former Fox News executive Bill Shine as deputy chief of staff for communications, the White House announced Thursday.
Shine will join the White House after serving as co-president of Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network. . . .
Shine joined Fox News in 1996 as a producer for Sean Hannity. In 2014, he was named senior executive vice president of programming and filled the role of co-president last August.
He departed the network as part of several management changes in May 2017 following weeks of accusations of sexual harassment against former Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes and host Bill O’Reilly.
Shine was accused in some of the lawsuits as an “enabler” of the harassment, but denied any wrongdoing.
