President Biden has chosen attorney and television personality Star Jones Lugo to lead a US government agency that identifies and protects sites of historic significance to the United States in Eastern Europe.

The White House announced Friday that Jones will serve as chairman of the U.S. Commission for the Preservation of American Heritage Abroad, which is tasked with safeguarding sites associated with groups affected by Nazism, Communism and the Cold War.


Jones is a former prosecutor and former co-host of ABC’s “The View” and will become a judge on the TV show “Divorce Court” this fall.

Biden, who chooses seven members to the agency’s 21-person unpaid board, also selected Bill Shaheen, husband of New Hampshire Senator Jeanne Shaheen, to the commission.
