She joined “We’re Proud to Be U.S.” as an anchor in 2014, and has also hosted “POTUS” and “Meet the Press.”
“We are excited to welcome Donna Burden to the team,” the Navy said in a statement.

She also served as an adviser to President Donald Trump’s transition team.
Burden is the second woman to be appointed as an “office” anchor for the program, joining former White House correspondent Katie Couric in 2016.
