NEW YORK – Former White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki has officially landed at MSNBC, where she is expected to perform in the network’s cable and streaming programs, as well as host a new original show.
The program, which is scheduled to debut in the first quarter of 2023, “will combine its unique perspective from behind the rostrum and its deep experience of top-level government and presidential policy,” the network said in a statement on Tuesday.
Psaki will also appear on NBC and during MSNBC’s special prime-time election programs during the mid-term and 2024 presidential elections.
Psaki recently served as White House spokesman for the first 16 months of the Biden administration. She previously served as White House communications director under former President Barack Obama and as a spokeswoman for the State Department.
“Her extensive experience in government and campaigning, as well as prospects as an insider for the White House and Washington, is a type of analysis that distinguishes MSNBC,” MSNBC President Rashid Jones said in a statement. “She is a familiar face and authority for MSNBC. spectators, and we look forward to understanding it during this next election season. ”
At MSNBC, air personalities are mostly sympathetic to Biden and Democrats. During Psaka’s stay in the White House, Democrats considered her a champion of their affairs, while conservatives considered her militant and resilient.
MSNBC also hired Simon Sanders, former chief spokeswoman for Vice President Kamala Harris. NBC News has made every effort to distinguish between its journalists and MSNBC, which has stepped up its news programs.
