Former Disney Channel star Caroline Sunshine is joining the White House press office in the role of press assistant, according to CNN.

Caroline Sunshine, known for playing the role of Tinka Hessenheffer in Shake It Up, had been serving as a White House intern.

Sunshine is something of a Young Republican stalwart, with a White House spokesperson bragging to CNN that she's interned for Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), as well as for the College Republican National Committee and the California Republican Party.

Prior to that, he led VCU from 2003-2006, leading the Rams to 79 victories and a.694 winning percentage in conference play. Capel, 43, has served as an assistant to Blue Devils coach Mike Krzyzewski since 2011.

However, there's no blatant showbiz favouritism here, as Sunshine originally applied to the internship through the White House's website. She also started in the 2010 film 'Marmaduke,' among many other roles.

She is the latest person with a broadcast background to join the White House - the incoming National Economic Council director is CNBC host Larry Kudlow, while Fox News analyst John Bolton will be the next national security adviser. Shake It Up was a Disney Channel show about teen dancers that ran from 2010 to 2013.

Capping it all off, she's a known entity to the White House where she recently interned.

What's more, some light rain may reach parts of Berks County, the Lehigh Valley and the Poconos sometime during the evening rush. Given the clouds and less cold southeasterly breeze, expect a less cold night with lows likely remaining in the low to mid 30s.

Much like her new boss, Ms Sunshine is a fan of Twitter, where she has more than 500,000 followers and tweets about citizenship ceremonies, Memorial Day, NASA's new astronauts and The Bachelorette.
