It has been announced that former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki will begin appearing on MSNBC.
Her appearances will start in the fall.
Psaki will also get her own show on the streaming service Peacock, owned by MSNBC parent company NBC, The Daily Caller reports.
The report states:
“The program, set to debut in the first quarter of 2023, will bring together her unique perspective from behind the podium and her deep experience in the highest levels of government and presidential politics to MSNBC viewers,” the announcement said, according to USA Today. “Psaki will also appear on NBC and during MSNBC’s primetime special election programming throughout the midterms and 2024 presidential election.”
Jones said she hired Psaki due to her “extensive experience in government and on the campaign trail and perspective as a White House and Washington insider,” according to NBC News.
“She’s a familiar face and trusted authority to MSNBC viewers, and we look forward to her insight during this consequential election season,” Jones said.
Psaki made her own announcement on her future career plans Tuesday, after having remained silent on previous reports regarding her employment.
