President Donald Trump has reportedly tapped economic analyst Larry Kudlow to head the White House National Economic Council.

Anonymous sources told The Washington Post on Wednesday that Kudlow accepted Trump's offer to take over the position Gary Cohn left earlier in March.

As of Wednesday morning, it was unclear when Trump would make the official announcement. But according to CNBC, it could come as early as Thursday.

Kudlow was considered to be the front-runner for the job. He's worked in media and informally advised Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign.
