Jen Psaki, Press Secretary to the former Senator from Delaware, is reportedly in “talks” to join MSNBC after her departure from the White House in May.

According to Axios, “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 also told some senior officials at the White House about her departure and her plans to join MSNBC, according to two sources.”

The news outlet said the discussions revolve around Psaki hosting her own show. They also addressed rumors that Psaki was replacing Maddow saying, “She will also be a part of live programming on MSNBC’s cable network as a voice on different shows, but she will not be hosting the 9 p.m. hour replacing Rachel Maddow, which has been speculated.”

Departing Press Secretaries are commonly placed within news networks. Kayleigh McEany joined Fox News as a commentator. Additionally, Sean Spicer joined Newsmax.
