The State Department announced on Monday former “Fox & Friends” anchor Heather Nauert has been hired as a spokesperson for the agency now under the leadership of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

Nauert, a news correspondent since 1998, received her masters from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism and is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
…qualities that appealed to the State Department.
“Heather’s media experience and long interest in international affairs will be invaluable as she conveys the Administration’s foreign policy priorities to the American people and the world,” the agency said in a statement.
The move amounts to a role reversal of sorts, given that Fox News signed former State Department deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf as a contributor earlier this year.

Let’s hope Nauert is better received at Foggy Bottom than Harf was when joining Fox News.
Speaking of role reversals, Jen Psaki, who served in the Obama administration in the role Nauert now assumes, is a contributor on CNN.
