IT’S GOOD to be Jay Carney.
Jay Carney, former press secretary to President Barack Obama, will join CNN as a political commentator, it was announced today by Sam Feist, senior vice president and Washington bureau chief. Carney will contribute to programs across the network as well as special political programming, beginning tonight as the President reveals his ISIS strategy to the nation.
“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,” said Feist. “We’re fortunate to have Jay on our air tonight to provide analysis and insight surrounding the President’s address to the nation.”
