Washington (CNN)Former “Apprentice” contestant and Donald Trump surrogate Erin Elmore will be joining the Republican convention’s caucus operation team as deputy press secretary, a senior convention source told CNN Thursday.
The move was reported earlier by PhillyChitChat.com
and Philadelphia Magazine
. Elmore will be part of a rapid response communications team that will work as an intermediary between the Trump campaign and the national convention staff.
Elmore was a local news reporter in Jacksonville, Florida, and a guest host on QVC. Most recently, she has appeared as an analyst on several news networks, including CNN.
The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story misstated Elmore’s position. She is joining the Republican National Convention team, not the Trump campaign.
