Former White House press secretary Jay Carney can now add CNN to his resume.

The former flack will give his point of view on all sorts of topics–including his former boss's performance, according to the The Washington Examiner.

Former Obama spokesman Jay Carney will join CNN as a political commentator, moving back into journalism after his time at the White House.

"Jay's unique experience as both a journalist and a White House press secretary make him an invaluable voice for the network," Sam Feist, CNN’s Washington bureau chief, said.

The CNN gig is not the only public commentating the recent press secretary is has pursued. Politico‘s Dylan Byers reported that Carney has signed with a speaking company.

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.

Jay Carney is excited about bringing his perspective to cable news.

"I'm thrilled to be joining CNN at a time when there is so much happening in the nation and the world," Carney said.
