SPEAKERS


MIKA BRZEZINSKI
Co-Host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe
Best-Selling Author of All Things at Once, Knowing Your Value, and Obsessed

Mika Brzezinski is the co-host of MSNBC’s award-winning morning show Morning Joe, and a three-time New York Times best-selling author. The Democrat to partner Joe Scarborough’s Republican, Brzezinski spends each weekday morning debating the headlines of the day with a roundtable of political insiders, journalists, and newsmakers. Morning Joe has been called “revolutionary” by TIME magazine and ranked a top news show by The New York Times, which noted the stellar impact of Brzezinski’s natural repartee with co-host Scarborough as well as her off-the cuff commentary. Most recently, Brzezinski and her co-host were both inducted into the Cable Hall of Fame. Exclusively represented by Leading Authorities speakers bureau, Brzezinski’s presentations give audiences a smart, savvy, and insightful perspective on the news of the day and an inside look at the makings of a hit morning show.

In addition to her daily television presence, Mika Brzezinski is a best-selling author. Her most-recent work is 2015’s Grow Your Value: Living and Working to Your Full Potential, which gives women the tools necessary to advocate for themselves and grow their financial futures both professionally and personally. It is a follow-up to her second book, Knowing Your Value, which looks at perceptions of value and how successful women today have achieved their deserved recognition and financial worth in the workplace. Knowing Your Value reached #1 on the New York Times best-seller list for business books in 2011 and is currently in its second edition. In 2014, Brzezinski partnered with NBCUniversal to produce events based around Knowing Your Value throughout the country, empowering women to express their worth in business and in life. Brzezinski uses this platform to provide tangible, relatable advice that supports all women—at all ages and stages of their careers. Brzezinski is also the author of a New York Times best-selling memoir, All Things At Once, which discusses the challenges of juggling a demanding career and a fulfilling family life, and the author of 2013’s best seller Obsessed: America’s Food Addiction—and My Own.

Prior to rejoining MSNBC in January 2007, Brzezinski anchored the CBS Evening News Weekend Edition and served as a CBS News correspondent who frequently contributed to CBS Sunday Morning and 60 Minutes. After returning to MSNBC, Brzezinski anchored the Up to the Minute news and primetime newsbreaks during the week, filling in on MSNBC Live weekdays and on the weekends. In 2007, Brzezinski joined Morning Joe. Brzezinski began her journalism career in 1990 at ABC’s World News This Morning. Climbing the ranks as a reporter, she progressed from an assignment and features editor to a general assignments reporter and in 1997, joined CBS network news, where she served as a correspondent and anchor for the overnight Up to the Minute news program. In September of 2001, she became CBS’s principal “Ground Zero” reporter, broadcasting live from the scene of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks when the south tower collapsed.

A native of New York City, she is the daughter of Foreign Policy Expert and Former National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski. She is a member of the Council of Foreign Relations and a Williams College alum.
