Obama Picks Jay Carney For Press Secretary by NPR Staff and Wires

January 27, 2011

A White House official confirms to NPR that Jay Carney will be the next White House press secretary.

President Obama has chosen Carney, the communications director for Vice President Joe Biden and a former longtime journalist with Time magazine.
Carney will replace the departing Robert Gibbs as the chief spokesman and one of the most public faces of the administration.

The decision is part of a package of new personnel changes at the White House, said the official, who spoke about them on condition of anonymity because Obama had not publicly disclosed them.
I don't know much about Carney, but if he worked for Time magazine I'd think it's a good fit for Press Secretary.
