Obama picks Zients to replace Sperling as economic adviser

WASHINGTON, Sept 13 (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama has chosen former acting budget chief Jeffrey Zients to replace Gene Sperling as his top economic adviser, a White House official said on Friday.

Obama plans to make the announcement about the change later in the day, according to the official, who was confirming a report in the New York Times.

Sperling, a longtime economic adviser to Obama and to President Bill Clinton, will step down at the end of this year.
