White House press secretary Jen Psaki plans to leave the administration this spring and is in exclusive talks to join MSNBC, where she is expected to host a show for the streaming service operated by network parent NBCUniversal
according to people familiar with the discussions.
Psaki hasn’t signed any contracts with the network and has been consulting closely with the White House Counsel’s Office as she prepares to leave President Biden’s administration, the people said. She is expected to depart the White House in the coming weeks.
Psaki’s exclusive talks with MSNBC were first reported Friday by Axios.
Psaki, who returned to the briefing room Friday after testing positive for COVID-19 last week, said she had nothing to confirm about her plans.
