On Friday, White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki announced that White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki is about to leave her position to work for MSNBC, Axios, CNN, and The New York Times.
The White House declined to comment on the intentions of the “press secretary,” who has been absent for several days from the famous briefing room due to a positive COVID-19 test.
According to Axios, who first released the information, Jen Psaki, 43, is in exclusive negotiations with MSNBC, a progressive channel that has already recruited former Vice President Kamala Harris spokesperson Simon Sanders.
According to CNN, the speaker will remain in office until the hugely popular White House Correspondents’ Guild Dinner, which will be held on April 30, after two editions were canceled due to the pandemic.
Jen Psaki had announced in the spring of 2021 that she intended to spend another year or so in this very exposed position, explaining that she wanted to spend time with her two young children.
The White House spokeswoman, after holding various government positions during Obama’s two terms, joined CNN in 2017 as a political commentator.
She then joined the so-called “transition” team in November 2020, where she was responsible for preparing for Joe Biden’s arrival in the White House.
