Former co-president of Fox News Bill Shine is in final discussions with President Donald Trump's administration to become White House communications director, according to two people familiar with the matter.
These conversations have been ongoing in recent weeks, those people say. A final decision has not been made but could come as soon as Wednesday.
The White House declined to comment.
Shine was forced to resign from the Fox News Channel in May 2017 for his handling of the sexual harassment scandal that took down the network's chairman, Roger Ailes.
Shine also has close ties to Fox News host Sean Hannity. Before Shine was promoted to the executive ranks of the network, he was Hannity's producer.
Hannity has been a staunch supporter of Trump. Beyond boosting the administration through his radio and TV show, Hannity reportedly has regular conversations with Trump and has become an external White House advisor.
If Shine were to take the job, he would become the fourth communications director, succeeding Hope Hicks, who departed the post in March.
Prior to Hicks' reign, hedge-fund impresario Anthony Scaramucci was in the job, lasting only 10 days. He was fired after using explicit language in an interview with The New Yorker.
Officials at Fox News did not immediately respond to a CNBC request for comment, although the network initially reported that Shine is in final talks with the White House.
Correction: This story was revised to correct the circumstances surrounding Shine's departure from Fox News. He was forced to resign.
