Is Anthony Weiner Considering a TV Gig?

WeinerGeraldoThe New York Observer reports that former congressman Anthony Weiner may be seriously looking at a media job. The Observer says Weiner began reaching out to TV and radio talent agents earlier this year, even before he began his run for Mayor. Following his 5th place finish in the primary, Weiner has made a few appearances, including on Geraldo Rivera‘s radio show.

Rivera, known to take a selfie or two, tweeted this picture with Weiner, known to take a selfie or dozens, last Friday. As for where he might end up, the Observer talked to “an insider:”

The industry source added that MSNBC was a “natural” destination for Mr. Weiner, but said that the fifth-place finisher would have to prove himself. “It’s almost like doing a failed pilot,” he said. “He’s going to need to demonstrate that he can still do this.”
