Unemployed Sean Spicer Shopping Every Television Network For Gig — Except CNN
Sean Spicer has hit the ground running to find a media job following his resignation from the Trump administration.
The New York Post reports that Spicer spent the past week meeting with network executives, including David Rhodes at CBS and NBC News president Noah Oppenheim. The former White House spokesman is currently courting speculative offers from Fox News and ABC (for a spot on pop-culture juggernaut “Dancing With the Stars”).
A TV insider told the Post that, “Spicer has met with everyone except CNN — for obvious reasons. Everybody wants to get the first interview with him, he’s a huge booking right now — but Sean’s got his own agenda and he’s first looking for a big TV job.”
Hollywood agencies CAA, WME, and UTA are also vying for Spicer’s attention regarding a possible book deal and lucrative speaking arrangements.
On Wednesday, Spicer was interviewed by MSNBC senior political analyst Mark Halperin at the Manhattan Greek restaurant Marta. Halperin covered the 2016 Presidential Election on Showtime’s “The Circus.” He also co-authored 2010’s “Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime,” which was subsequently turned into an HBO film starring Julianne Moore and Ed Harris.
“They took the private dining room to be out of sight and were served by a manager to keep things low-key,” a source told The Post. “Halperin is doing a book on the first 45 days of the administration.”
“This is the phase where you just say ‘hi’ to everybody,” Spicer told White House reporters.
