Former White House press secretary Jay Carney is set to join CNN as a political commentator Washington bureau chief Sam Feist announced today. See him tonight for the network’s coverage pertaining to President Barack Obama’s remarks on ISIS.
“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.”
Carney left the White House in June after announcing his resignation in May, the same day that President Obama received Eric Shinseki‘s resignation as Secretary of Veterans Affairs.

Before that, he was with TIME magazine for 20 years, as Washington bureau chief, White House correspondent, and Moscow correspondent.
