Former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki resigned last month.
Former White House press secretary Jen Psaki, who became a viral sensation during her tenure under President Joe Biden thanks to her fiery exchanges with reporters and subsequent TikTok fame, will soon begin working for MSNBC.
The network announced on Tuesday that she will serve as a political commentator throughout the 2020 midterms and the 2024 presidential campaign. Next year, she will also anchor a show on MSNBC on Peacock, a streaming-only channel.
It was widely believed that Ms. Psaki would leave the West Wing on May 13 to pursue a career in television journalism. Earlier this year, when she was still presiding at the White House lectern, rumors began circulating about her perhaps joining MSNBC. During that time, Ms. Psaki stated that she acted ethically when discussing potential job openings with others.
She is MSNBC’s second high-profile recruit from the Biden administration. Former Vice Presidential campaign spokesperson Symone D. Sanders now hosts a weekend show for the network. In a statement released by MSNBC, Ms. Psaki described the focus of her show as “fact-based and serious debates about the key concerns on the minds of people around the country.”
MSNBC’s election and primary night coverage already include outspoken commentators like Rachel Maddow and Nicolle Wallace, who are favorites among Democrats and other left-leaning viewers. Now, a major member of Mr. Biden’s inner circle from his first term can provide real-time comments to its viewers.
Ms. Psaki has previously been an on-air contributor for CNN. Previously, she was the chief spokesperson for then-Secretary of State John Kerry and the director of White House communications for then-President Barack Obama.
