White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki is expected to depart the Biden administration in the coming weeks and move to MSNBC. Psaki has not officially signed a contract with the cable news network, but talks are in the advanced stages. MSNBC declined to comment.
Axios, which first broke the news, reported that Psaki will host a show for NBC’s streaming platform Peacock. She will also appear on MSNBC’s shows.
According to CNN Business, a White House official “declined to confirm Psaki’s future plans. But the official said, “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.
“It’s not clear who will replace Psaki when she does step down.
“The White House declined to comment on the matter, but deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre will almost certainly be under consideration. White House communications director Kate Bedingfield, who made her debut briefing the press this week, is also a likely contender.”
