Ex-White House press secretary Jen Psaki hired by MSNBC


NEW YORK (AP) — Former White House press secretary Jen Psaki has officially landed at MSNBC, where she is expected to make appearances on the network’s cable and streaming programs as well as host a new original show.

Psaki will also appear on NBC and during MSNBC’s primetime special election programming throughout the midterms and 2024 presidential election.

Psaki most recently served as White House spokesperson for the first 16 months of the Biden administration. She left the job just over a week ago.

It was reported in early April that she landed the gig at MSNBC, but Psaki wouldn’t confirm it. The fact that she was reportedly negotiating for a job at a network that covers The White House while she was still working for The White House led to questions about ethics

Psaki previously served as White House communications director under former President Barack Obama and as the spokeswoman for the Department of State.
