“Fox & Friends” is looking for a new head writer.

President Donald Trump’s favorite television show posted an official ad on the media jobs site, MediaBistro, on Wednesday.

“If you never get beat on a story, have an eye for catchy stories and a passion for current events, this is the job for you,” it reads.

“You will supervise a team of Writers and work with Senior Producers to craft the tone of a fast-paced show. You will assign stories to writers and manage the gathering of all video and sound bites as well as fact check stories and research news topics.”

The network is looking for candidates with four years or more of “national or local major market experience,” as well as “a passion for current events & accuracy.”

And it’s for U.S. citizens only — as the job “does not provide visa sponsorship.”

A person familiar with the matter told TheWrap that the position became available due to an internal promotion within the company. A network spokesperson did not immediately respond to inquiries about what else the job may entail or why the role is available.

“Fox & Friends” has been called most influential three hours on television. The show regularly dominates its network news competitors and is a staple of President Trump’s morning television viewing.

In addition to watching it regularly, Trump has retweeted stories from the “Fox & Friends” Twitter account, and responds in real time to news he hears on the show. In the past, “Fox & Friends”-inspired tweets have set the tone for an entire day of news coverage.

Trump also is known to be friendly with the show’s staff as well. In October 2016, Trump invited co-host Pete Hegseth and former executive producer Jennifer Rauchet to a private dinner at the White House. News of the intimate meal emerged only after photos from participants were posted to Instagram.
