White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki may be on the move and on her way to MSNBC, according to a new report from Axios. The news has yet to be confirmed or denied by Psaki, but Axios says the move is happening soon.
Psaki plans to leave the White House in May, according to reports.
“It’s been speculated for weeks that Psaki would leave the White House for a TV gig. White House communications staffers often negotiate TV jobs once they leave an administration, Axios reports.
“Psaki has been in close consultation with the White House counsel’s office about her departure, according to two sources familiar with the plans. She’s been treading carefully on the ethics and legal aspects of her plans.”
According to the report, Psaki would host a show for MSNBC on NBCUniversal’s streaming platform, Peacock.
