Josh Earnest Inks Deal With NBC/MSNBC As Political Analyst

Josh Earnest

Former White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest has inked a deal to join NBC and MSNBC as a political analyst.

Earnest spent 10 years with President Obama in several roles concluding with 3 years as Press Secretary from 2014-2017.

He began his new job this morning on NBC's TODAY talking about the failure of President Trump and House Republicans to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

It's common for former Press Secretaries to move into analyst positions on networks.

Jay Carney and Robert Gibbs, who both worked for Obama, signed on with CNN and MSNBC, respectively, after their time in the White House.

Ari Fleischer, Press Secretary for President George W. Bush from 2001 to 2003, joined CNN as a contributor.
