Sean Spicer Handing Over White House Briefing Podium

Sean Spicer takes on new role, may no longer give press briefings

White House press secretary Sean Spicer is leading a search for his own replacement at the briefing room podium.

The White House has been seeking to restructure the press shop since communications director Michael Dubke resigned from the role last month.

“We have sought input from many people as we look to expand our communications operation,” said White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. “As he did in the beginning, Sean Spicer is managing both the communications and press office.”

Last week, Spicer and White House chief of staff Reince Priebus reached out to Fox News personality Laura Ingraham about the role of press secretary and Daily Mail editor David Martosko about the role of communications director, according to a White House official.

Spicer has been pushing to move into a new role senior to both the communications director and press secretary, according to the people familiar with the discussions.
