Bill Shine, the former Fox News president who resigned last year at the height of the cable network's sexual harassment issues, is expected to be the next White House communications director, per a source familiar. The New York Times' Maggie Haberman and Michael Shear first reported the story.

The details: Shine's role, which is expected to oversee the White House's press and communications arms, will be behind-the-scenes rather than in front of the camera.
