Bill Shine, the former Fox News executive and ally to disgraced boss Roger Ailes, is reportedly in talks for a job in the White House communications department.
The New York Times cited several anonymous sources who said Shine was in discussions for a role on Tuesday.
The news came a week after Shine joined the former communications director Anthony Scaramucci at a dinner with the president and first lady.
Sean Hannity was also present for the meal which fell in the middle of Scaramucci's first and only week in the role.
Shine left Fox in May after being tied to the growing sexual harassment allegations engulfing his friend and colleague Roger Ailes.

Shine and Scaramucci worked together during the latter's brief tenure with Fox.
According to the unnamed administration sources, Shine's discussions about a role happened last week before Scaramucci was fired.
One person said the role would be of a behind-the-scenes nature and would focus on Shine's expertise in production.
Neither Shine, 54, nor the White House has officially confirmed the reports.
Hannity however insisted that his job prospects were not discussed at last week's dinner
