Carney, who said he planned to leave in mid-June, will be replaced by Josh Earnest, a deputy press secretary.

“In April, Jay came to me in the Oval Office and said that he was thinking of moving on, and I was not thrilled, to say the least … but Jay has had to wrestle with this decision for quite some time,” Obama told reporters.

Carney said that despite the challenges of the job, “I love it.” “It’s not all pretty. It could certainly be better. But to be part of it is certainly an honor and a joy for me.”
