(Reuters) – Pentagon spokesperson John Kirby will become the White House’s National Security Council Coordinator for Strategic Communications, the White House said in a statement on Friday.

“In this role, Kirby will coordinate interagency efforts to explain United States policy and will serve as a senior administration voice on related matters, including as appropriate at the White House podium,” the White House said.
