Conservative talk-show host Laura Ingraham appeared on Tuesday to back away from the possibility of replacing White House press secretary Sean Spicer.
"I'm not sure the press secretary thing is something I'm dying to do," Ingraham told Steve Doocy on Fox News.
Ingraham was among several candidates reportedly under consideration for succeeding Spicer in a possible shake-up in the White House's communications operation.
Spicer, 45, is rumored to be promoted to a role that oversees the Trump administration's news and communications operations, though he told reporters Tuesday that "I'm right here."
"You can keep taking your selfies," he told reporters at the daily press briefing.
His comments were at Spicer's first on-camera session with reporters in eight days.
"Look, it's no secret we've had a couple vacancies, including our communications director, he's been gone for a while," he said. "We've been meeting with potential people that may be of service to this administration.
"I don't think that should come as any surprise but we're always looking for ways to do a better job of articulating the president's message and his agenda."
Spicer then added: "When we have an announcement of a personnel nature, we'll let you know."
Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle, who was considered for press secretary during the transition, was not now interested in the position, Politico reported on Monday.
Politico also reported Monday that David Martosko, U.S. political editor of DailyMail.com, interviewed for the communications director job.
However, three people familiar with the situation told Bloomberg News that was not accurate.
Martosko said on Tuesday that he was not interested in the post:
But Dylan Byers, CNN senior media reporter, posted his own tweet debunking Martosko:
