Fox Corporation — a new standalone company that owns Fox News, among other properties — announced Tuesday the hiring of former House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) to its board of directors.

“Mr. Paul D. Ryan served as the 54th Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives from 2015 to 2019, in which capacity he spearheaded efforts to revise the federal tax code, rebuild the national defense, expand domestic energy production, combat the opioid epidemic, and reform the criminal justice system,” the company said in a press release.

Tuesday marked the full separation of the Fox Corporation from Twenty-First Century Fox, which Disney recently acquired, and the first day it will be a publicly traded company.
