Mr. Axelrod “will contribute frequently across all broadcasts and platforms of both networks,” the announcement stated.
The politico began his career as a journalist, spending eight years at the Chicago Tribune before beginning his political career in 1984.
“He founded Axelrod and Associates, a political and media consulting firm, which became AKPD Message and Media. He later founded the communications management firm ASGK Public Strategies,” the announcement continued.
“Axelrod, an alumnus of the University of Chicago, was recently named director of the university’s new Institute of Politics, and as a Distinguished Senior Fellow at the Harris School of Public Policy. He previously worked as an Adjunct Professor of Communication Studies at Northwestern University.”
Mr. Axelrod should feel right at home at the left-leaning media network, where he has appeared frequently over the years. Steve Schmidt, from the 2008 John McCain campaign, has also joined as an analyst for MSNBC.
