President-elect Donald Trump understands how the media works and will grant interviews to a variety of outlets during his presidency, which shows his "no fear attitude," incoming White House communications director Sean Spicer said.

During an interview on "The Hugh Hewitt Show" Thursday, Spicer said Trump will hold a formal press conference sometime next month before he takes office Jan. 20.

"What we owe the press conference, I would qualify that as engagement with left-wing media," Spicer said. "And that's going to come in January as he's already talked about."

Spicer then spoke on the incoming administration's feelings about the traditional mainstream media, which Trump has blasted several times over the last year and a half.

"I get it, we're not going to win a battle whether The New York Times is going to ever give us a fair shake or not," Spicer said. "But we recognize that there's, you know, a few thousand readers or so left that still look at The New York Times, and so it's worth, probably, talking to them.

"So we're going to utilize various outlets to continue the conversation. As you point out, he's not afraid of anybody. He can sit down and go toe-to-toe with world leaders, top business folks. That's what's made him successful is his sort of no fear, get it done attitude."

Spicer, who has worked as the communications director at the Republican National Committee since 2011, also talked to Hewitt about his role in Trump's administration. His duties will include serving as the White House press secretary.

"I'm really excited and honored, and frankly humbled by this," Spicer said. "This is what, as a communicator, you dream of. And the idea that President-elect Trump has honored me by this opportunity is truly amazing.

"I pinched myself for the last five days every day going, 'holy smokes.' So it is honestly the single greatest honor I've had in my life, and I hope I live up to it."
