”The Apprentice” runner-up Kwame Jackson, who continues to play Clay to winner Bill Rancic’s Ruben, isn’t leaving the media spotlight anytime soon. Spokespeople from MSNBC and CNBC have confirmed talking with Jackson about an on-air gig as a financial correspondent, the New York Post reports. (The two cable news channels share many correspondents, and both are owned by NBC, home of ”The Apprentice.”) Jackson, who has a Harvard MBA degree and served as a Wall Street analyst before finding reality TV fame with The Donald, would likely host occasional news segments on the personal finance beat. Meantime, he continues to mull offers from potential employers, from KFC (which has offered him a high-profile marketing job) and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban. Rancic is also likely to be back on TV in a proposed ”Apprentice” spinoff that would trace his progress managing Donald Trump’s Chicago hotel construction project. And of course, Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth also threatens to return to TV, claiming she’s fielding talk show offers. Be afraid, be very afraid.
