Mike Dubke, founder of Crossroads Media, to be named White House communications director, sources say

The White House is set to name Mike Dubke, the founder of Crossroads Media, as its communications director, sources told Fox News.

Dubke was at the White House Thursday. He will replace Jason Miller, who stepped down soon after he was selected in December.

Dubke has been involved in local, state and federal politics since 1988, according to his bio on Crossroads Media’s website.

“His experience has brought him a unique understanding of the relationship between political strategy and public policy development,” the website read.

Miller abruptly announced that he would not take the job– two days after the transition team said he was joining the Trump administration in that role.

Miller, a longtime spokesman for Trump’s campaign and later the transition operation, had been named communications director and assistant to the president as part of the senior White House communications team.

But he said at the time that he wanted to spend more time with his family.
