Press Secretary Jen Psaki To Join MSNBC In May After Leaving White House

Psaki is expected to remain in the job through the White House Correspondents Association’s annual dinner on April 30.

(Fwrd Axis) — White House press secretary Jen Psaki plans to join MSNBC and leave the Biden administration in the coming weeks, according to those familiar with the matter.

Psaki has not officially signed a contract but the talks are in the “advanced stage”, meaning the news could become official in just a matter of days or weeks.

Axios first broke the news, saying Psaki will have her own show on NBC’s streaming service Peacock. She will also appear on MSNBC’s shows as a contributor. The White House has not confirmed the story but an official released a statement on the matter, remaining mum on any speculation.

“We don’t have anything to confirm about Jen’s length of planned service or any consideration about future plans,” the official told FWRD AXIS News. “Jen is here and working hard every day on behalf of the President to get you the answers to the questions that you have, and that’s where her focus is.”

Once the news is official, it will make Psaki the second Biden administration official to join the Peacock network. Symone Sanders, who was the senior spokesperson for Vice President Kamala Harris, left the White House earlier this year and will be hosting a show on MNSBC in May.

Prior to joining the Biden administration, Psaki worked in the Obama administration as a White House communications director and State Department spokesperson.

Previous government officials have went on to have successful careers in television news. former President Donald Trump’s final press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, joined Fox News as a commentator. Just this week, CBS News announced the hire of ex-Trump official Mick Mulvaney as a paid contributor.

Psaki’s successor has not been named but sources say Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre and White House Communications Director Kate Bedingfield are two leading candidates for the job.
