Bloomberg News reported in April 2015 that retiring U.S. Acting Spokesperson Marie Harf, who had also interviewed for the position, would be replaced by Navy Rear Admiral John Kirby, who would soon be named Spokesperson for the Department of State. Kirby also beat out Harf for the role of spokesperson at the United States in 2013.
