In a statement, the White House said Shine has 20 years of television programming, communications, and management experience.
The staff announcement is the latest shakeup in Trump's communications office.
Shine, born in 1963, was promoted to co-president of Fox News, Trump's preferred television channel, in 2016 but was removed last year for his handling of a sexual harassment scandal involving Roger Ailes, the network's former chairman and CEO.
