Politico is reporting that Fox News anchor Heather Nauert is in discussions to be the next spokesperson for the State Department.
According to Politico’s sources, nothing is final until Secretary of State Rex Tillerson signs off on the appointment.
Nauert was spotted at the White House last week for an appointment to speak with Donald Trump about a communications position.
Nauert, who has been with Fox since 1996 with a two-year break at ABC News, is currently a news anchor for the network’s morning show “Fox & Friends.” According to her Fox News biography, she graduated from Mt. Vernon College with an undergraduate degree in communications and received her master’s degree in journalism from Columbia University.
Trump has often complimented “Fox & Friends”, saying during his press conference today that “they are very honorable people” and “they have the most honest morning show.”
Earlier this week, Nauert tweeted that she’s buying Ivanka Trump heels and wearing them on air after Nordstrom announced it is dropping the line.
