    MSNBC confirmed on Tuesday that former White House press secretary Jen Psaki will join the network in the fall as host of a new streaming program that will launch in early 2023. Psaki will also appear on NBC and MSNBC programming later this year to discuss the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential election.

    Reports of Psaki's move to MSNBC emerged back in April, though the news was not yet confirmed at the time. She stepped down from her role as press secretary earlier this month.

    “Fact-based and thoughtful conversations about the big questions on the minds of people across the country have never been more important, and I’m thrilled to join the incredible MSNBC team,” Psaki said in a statement. “My time in government, from the White House to the State Department, and years before that on national political campaigns will fuel the insight and perspective I bring to this next chapter. I can’t wait to create a space on streaming where we break down the facts, get to the bottom of what’s driving the issues and hopefully have some fun along the way.”
