White House press secretary Jen Psaki could reportedly replace Rachel Maddow on MSNBC

The Biden administration’s sharp-elbowed White House press secretary Jen Psaki has emerged as a top candidate for Rachel Maddow’s anchor chair, according to a new report.

Psaki, who has plans to leave the White House this year, is being courted by several news networks, including CNN and MSNBC, according to newsletter Puck.

A source told The Post that UTA super agent and co-president Jay Sures shopped the idea of Psaki as a potential cable news primetime host all over town, drumming up interest, before he signed her.

His timing couldn’t be better as TV networks are looking to shake up their lineups. And perhaps more urgently for CNN and MSNBC, both networks are in need of new blood for their primetime shows.

And CNN is on the hunt for somebody to anchor its 9 p.m. show after Chris Cuomo was fired late last year, after sexual misconduct allegations came to light, as well as revelations that he secretly aided the defense of his embattled older brother, former Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
