President Donald Trump’s latest hire is J. Hogan Gidley, a University of Mississippi alum who will serve as a deputy White House press secretary.

Serving under White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders will be familiar for Gidley having worked together for her father, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, on his presidential campaign in 2016.

Gidley graduated from the University of Mississippi with a broadcast journalism degree in 1998.
