Former Biden White House press secretary Jen Psaki’s MSNBC show will debut Sunday, March 19 at 12 p.m. ET.
Jen Psaki, the MSNBC anchor and former White House press secretary, will debut Inside with Jen Psaki on Sunday, March 19 at 12:00 p.m. ET on MSNBC and will stream on Peacock the next day.
Psaki will also contribute a regular column to the network’s morning newsletter, MSNBC Daily, and is developing a new original streaming and social show, both slated to launch this spring.
Inside with Jen Psaki will leverage Psaki’s wide-ranging expertise to tackle the week’s biggest issues, including one-on-one interviews with newsmakers. Every Sunday she will break down and understand the most complex political discussions taking place in the nation’s capital, from the debt ceiling to political campaigning to the war in Ukraine and more. In a special recurring segment, “Weekend Routine,” Psaki will lift the curtain on the everyday lives of notable lawmakers and influential thought leaders. She will accompany each newsmaker in their usual activities of talking about their work, career and personal life, highlighting a unique and often unseen side.
Jen Psaki’s role is expanding at MSNBC
MSNBC has steadily increased Psaki’s presence on the network. She is a regular contributor to coverage of major events such as the recent State Of The Union and appears regularly on other programs on the network. Psaki’s show sounds unique and has the potential to be different from the other Sunday shows.

There is a clear opening for a Sunday show to air at 12 p.m., as CNN is currently airing a 12 p.m. repeat of its 9 p.m. show, and the other network programs have already ended.
The network appears to be grooming Psaki as its next potential star, which MSNBC desperately needs since Rachel Maddow’s departure from the nightly program has caused a hole in ratings and a drop in viewership.
If Psaki’s Sunday and streaming shows do well, she’ll be joining MSNBC’s primetime lineup in the near future.
