Sanders, 32, will be based in Washington, D.C. Her MSNBC show will explore issues at the intersection of politics, culture and race and break down how decisions made in Washington impact communities across the country. She’ll also interview law and policy makers, government officials, scholars, and thought leaders.
“Sanders will bring her expertise, spirited rhetoric and sharp political insight to MSNBC’s multi-platform channels. Her program will explore issues at the intersection of politics, culture and race and break down how decisions made in Washington impact electorates, industries, and communities across the country,” MSNBC said in the statement.
The Nebraska native left the White House in December 2021, but did not announce her next move. She previously worked on Sen. Bernie Sanders’s (I-Vt.) 2016 presidential campaign.
