President Trump is expected to name Heather Nauert, a ten-year veteran of Fox News, next week as his choice to succeed Nikki Haley as US ambassador to the United Nations.
Nauert joined the State Dept. last year as chief communications officer, where she worked for now former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Mike Pompeo, his replacement.
CNN reported that Nauert, who has been keeping a low-profile of late, met with the president on Oct. 29.
Trump has confirmed Nauert is under consideration for the job."She's excellent. She's been with us a long time. She's been a supporter for a long time. And she's really excellent," he said said on Nov. 1.
At Fox News, Ms. Nauert was an anchor who also appeared on "Fox & Friends," which is must-see TV for the president.
Prior to Fox, she did a two-year stint as correspondent at ABC News, where she covered domestic and international developments on "Good Morning America," "World News" and "Nightline."
