Kate Bedingfield, former White House comms director, joins CNN as political commentator

Another former White House communications staffer is making the jump to television news, reports TV Newser.

Former White House comms director Kate Bedingfield is joining CNN as an on-air political commentator, the network announced today. Bedingfield joins CNN after serving for two years as White House Communications Director under President Joe Biden.

She vacated the role at the end of February and was replaced by Ben LaBolt.

According to TV Newser, “White House communications staffers have a long history of transitioning into TV news. Many of them have been on-air contributors, and some have even gotten their solo-hosted or co-hosted shows. Bedingfield’s former Biden White House colleague Jen Psaki launched her own show this past spring which now airs Sundays on MSNBC. Symone Sanders, who worked directly with VP Kamala Harris, also has an MSNBC show airing at 4 p.m. ET on weekends, and former George W. Bush communications director Nicolle Wallace has her own MSNBC show airing weekdays at 4 p.m. Former Trump White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany co-hosts Outnumbered on Fox News, and Trump’s first White House press secretary Sean Spicer had a run hosting a show on Newsmax.”
