President Biden appoints Star Jones to lead US Heritage Abroad
Star Jones 2022 is off to an amazing start.
It was announced last week that the former The View co-host would be presiding over Divorce Court, taking over for Judge Faith Jenkins. Then President Joe Biden announced that he was appointing Jones to lead his U.S. Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad, which is tasked with safeguarding sites associated with groups impacted by Nazism, communism and the Cold War.
Deeply honored and humbled by this appointment as Chair & Commissioner, U.S. Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad.
Jones was the first Black person and the first woman to serve as a TV arbitrator on the short-lived court show, Jones & Jury. In 1997, she joined The View as one of the original co-hosts and stayed with the show until 2006. She has also appeared as a legal correspondent, commentator, host, and advocate on several networks including NBC, MSNBC, CNN, and TruTV.
