Spicer in talks for a ‘non-scripted reality show’ as major networks pass on making him a paid contributor
Former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer had a headline-grabbing cameo last weekend at the Emmy’s — but it didn’t land him any jobs.
According to NBC News, all of the top five major news networks — CBS News, CNN, Fox News, ABC News and NBC News — “won’t touch him.”
“The news organizations might use him on round tables, but [a paid exclusive contributor job] is not happening,” a TV news executive told NBC.
Someone familiar with Spicer’s post-White House TV prospects said the former press secretary is, however, in “talks about a non-scripted reality show.”
Earlier in the month, CNN said they would not hire Spicer as a contributor, citing “credibility issues related to statements he made from the White House Briefing Room.”
