Heather Nauert is an outstanding reporter and speaker. Anyone who has watched her on FOX News already knows this.
Now she’s going to be a spokeswoman for the State Department.
The Hill reports:
Report: Fox News anchor Heather Nauert to join Trump State Dept.
Fox News anchor Heather Nauert has been hired by the State Department to be its spokeswoman, according to a report Saturday.
Nauert accepted the job this week, Bloomberg News reported, citing two sources who asked not to be identified because the decision hadn’t been formally announced.
Nauert has been a news anchor on “Fox & Friends” since 2012 and has been with the Fox News and local New York Fox affiliate Fox-5 for most of the past 20 years, save for a two-year stint at ABC News from 2005-2007.
Before announcing his candidacy, President Trump had appeared on the Fox morning show as a weekly guest over the course of several years.
During a recent press conference, Trump specifically praised “Fox & Friends” for having “very honorable people.”
Nauert’s hiring would represent the second Fox journalist to jump to the State Department recently.
Jonathan Wachtel, who served as the network’s United Nations correspondent, was named spokesman for the U.S. mission to the U.N. on Feb. 25.
That’s so cool!
