President-elect Donald Trump has selected his senior communications team, making Sean Spicer White House press secretary, the transition team announced Thursday.

Spicer is the former communications director for the Republican National Committee.

Newsmax White House correspondent John Gizzi reported Spicer's hire earlier Thursday.

Jason Miller will be the director of communications. Campaign spokeswoman Hope Hicks will be director of strategic communications, while Dan Scavino will be director of social media.

Hicks and Scavino were original members of the Republican businessman's campaign. Miller joined after Trump became the presumptive nominee.

And Spicer is an ally of incoming White House chief of staff Reince Priebus who took a more central role during the transition.

Campaign manager Kellyanne Conway is the frequent TV presence who will serve as counselor to the president.
