Former White House Press Secretary Jay Carney will join CNN as a political commentator, the network announced Wednesday.
He will start Wednesday night as President Barack Obama makes a prime-time statement about the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, Sam Feist, CNN's Washington bureau chief said in a statement.
"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," Feist said. "We're fortunate to have Jay on our air tonight to provide analysis and insight surrounding the President's address to the nation."

Carney said when he left the White House in May that he'd maintain a public presence in the media. He also signed with the Washington Speakers Bureau.
"I'm thrilled to be joining CNN at a time when there is so much happening in the nation and the world," Carney said in a statement.
Carney joins a long line of former White House Press Secretaries making the jump to cable: Robert Gibbs joined CNBC after leaving the White House, Dana Perino is currently a host on Fox News, and George Stephanopoulos is now an ABC News anchor.
Carney's name had also been floated for jobs at tech companies like Apple and Uber. His former White House colleague David Plouffe will join Uber next month.

...Continuing CNN’s tradition of unbiased news reporting and commentary. Ahem. This will help accelerate their race with MSNBC to be the least watched and least influential cable news channel.
Unexpected. I bet on pMSNBC.
It so fits, does it not?
CNN is a “strange attractor” for incompetence.
(Note to libs, look it up.)
At this point, what difference does it make?
Great fit. For Carney and CNN.
After all, Carney had years of experience keeping a straight face as he lied on behalf of B. Hussein.
Now he can lie on CNN.
WHAT a surprise!!!
ANOTHER Democrat joins the “UNBIASED” CNN!!!
Who’d a thunk it??
from one sinking ship to another . . .
If CNN wanted someone who could really be good at providing analysis of hussein they should hire someone from ESPN who has covered a lot of golf tournaments.
Can't wait to miss him. Don't watch the Communist News Network anyway.
His post at the White House was a long time ago.
Carnival News Network
...proving again what a loser that smarmy lying bitch is.
I'm thrilled that total chaos in the world fits so nicely into your career plan. That's probably the last true statement you will make.
Why am I not surprised?!
Look at me! NOT being surprised!
