Sean Spicer will sit down with Fox News host Sean Hannity on Friday night for his first interview since announcing his resignation as White House press secretary.

Spicer resigned his post Friday morning reportedly in protest of President Donald Trump's decision to appoint Anthony Scaramucci as the new White House communications director.

He later tweeted that he would stay on through August.

Hannity will also have on Scaramucci and White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus for his show Friday, according to Fox News.

Hannity is a vocal supporter of Trump and frequently defends the administration on Twitter and his radio and TV shows. Hannity also scored an interview with Donald Trump Jr. on July 11 in the midst of a tumult over Trump Jr.'s meeting last year with a Russian attorney.

Spicer departed his post as one of the shortest-tenured press secretaries in White House history, lasting just over six months.
