Jay Carney Just Landed a New Job


Former White House press secretary Jay Carney has landed at CNN.

Carney will join the network as a political commentator starting Wednesday with President Barack Obama's speech about the Islamic State.


"Jay's unique experience as both a journalist and a White House press secretary make him an invaluable voice for the network as we cover the final two years of the Obama administration and look ahead to the coming campaigns," CNN Washington bureau chief Sam Feist said in a statement. "We're fortunate to have Jay on our air tonight to provide analysis and insight surrounding the president's address to the nation."

Carney previously served as Vice President Joe Biden's communications director. Before that, he worked for Time magazine as Moscow correspondent, White House correspondent and then as Washington bureau chief. Politico first reported on Carney's new gig.

"I'm thrilled to be joining CNN at a time when there is so much happening in the nation and the world," Carney said.

Carney stepped down as White House press secretary in June, being replaced by Josh Earnest.
