Bye Bye: Jen Psaki Set to Leave White House in May, Bring Real Psaki Show to MSNBC

Axios media reporter Sara Fischer Breaking the NewsJen Psaki, the current White House Press Secretary, will be speaking Friday morning is set to resign from her position “around May” in order to join MSNBC as a guest on their “live programming” across “different shows” with a show on parent company Comcast’s streaming platform Peacock.

As Fischer noted, Puck News reported in February that Psaki had been taking meetings with both MSNBC and CNN (where she was a political commentator for four years), but it seems as though she’ll be joining the network formerly known by its slogan “Lean Forward.”

Fischer said sources have told her Psaki hasn’t “formally told the White House press team about her departure,” but has announced it to “some senior officials at the White House” while the network’s consulted “lawyers to make sure their conversations didn’t violate any government regulations.”

Though a deal hasn’t been signed and it wasn’t reported the frequency in which her show will air, Fischer said her show wouldn’t be taking “the 9 p.m. hour replacing Rachel Maddow” even though it “had been speculated.”

Psaki’s show on Peacock would join their other shows known as part of section called The Choice, which currently includes radical leftists such as Michael Beschloss, Medhi Hassan, Zerlina Maxwell. 

Psaki would be joining Symone Sanders, who previously served as the Biden campaign’s communications director and then in the same position for the Office of Vice President Kamala Harris. For Sanders, her dealYou can watch episodes on MSNBC twice per week (Saturday, Sunday), and Peacock (Monday, and Tuesday).

Psaki — host of what we’ve referred to as Psaki’s Show — has spent the entirety of the Biden presidency as perhaps its most public face (aside from the President himself), left to answer, lie, and spin her way through the many controversies, crises, and gaffes.

And, of course, it’s safe to argue Psaki’s stock wouldn’t be anywhere near where it is without her Back-and-forth virales with Fox News’s Peter Doocy, who’s been able to hold the administration accountable without scooping to the juvenile levels we saw with a host of liberal journalists to Trump press secretaries.

So, whether it’ll be called The Psaki Show, Circle Back with Psaki, or Psock It, or Put a Psock in It, White House reporters will soon face a new face on a day-to-day basis at the podium.
