Symone Sanders lands at MSNBC

1

Vice President Kamala Harris’ former top spokesperson has only been off the job for less than two weeks, but already she’s got her next major gig lined up.

MSNBC announced on Monday that former press secretary Symone Sanders is joining the network as the host of both a weekend program and a show airing on MSNBC's The Choice on Peacock. Both shows are slated to launch later this spring. The network said further details, including the show name, premier date and time slot, will be announced in the coming months.

Politico reported last month that while multiple networks reached out to Sanders about potential on-air contributor gigs, MSNBC had gone further, expressing interest in bringing Sanders on board as a contributor or on-air host.

Sanders’ hire also marks the latest in an arms race for talent between the networks as they build out their streaming services.

On Monday, CNN announced that longtime host of NPR’s "All Things Considered," Audie Cornish, was joining the network as an anchor and correspondent for CNN+. In the last month alone, CNN also announced streaming-only shows from well-known food writer Alison Roman, actress Eva Longoria and former Fox News host Chris Wallace.
