Popular Fox News anchor Heather Nauert has reportedly been hired as a spokeswoman for the State Department.
Although the hire has not been announced formally by the administration, two sources familiar with the matter confirmed the move to Bloomberg Politics Saturday. Nauert, a co-host on “Fox & Friends” — considered one of President Donald Trump’s favorite cable news programs — will be tasked with maintaining the State Department’s public image.
Many of Nauert’s current and former cable news colleagues took to Twitter to congratulate her on the news.
“Congratulations to my good friend @HeatherNauert!” Heather Childers, a co-host for “Fox & Friends First,” tweeted Saturday.
