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, who 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. 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 Addition—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.

Women in the Workplace: You Can Have It All A powerful, funny, and moving presentation from a woman who has faced ups and downs and literal tumbles on her career trajectory.

Citing personal stories from her quest to find the work-life balance, Brzezinski presents tools and techniques for success at home and on the job.

Know and Grow Your Value. In her first book, the New York Times bestseller All Things At Once, Mika Brzezinski offered an honest look at professional setbacks and shared a pragmatic approach to achieving a work-life balance. Now, with her second and fourth books, she addresses one of the most complicated aspects of a woman’s career. Knowing Your Value and Grow Your Value tackle perceptions of value and how successful women today have achieved their deserved recognition and financial worth in the workplace. With her vast experience dealing with current events and hot topics through hosting Morning Joe and through navigating her own career, Brzezinski addresses offers informative and entertaining insights woven together with the latest research and polling issues such as equal pay, women in the boardroom, and access to start-up capital in order to create a highly relevant look into women’s perceived value in the office—and how they can increase their worth both professionally, personally, and financially.

Moderator With daily experience holding down the fort at the liveliest morning show on television, Mika Brezinski is an ideal choice to moderate a panel or interview. Brzezinski prepares for each event with the savvy of a veteran reporter, and helps panelists reveal insights with practical implications for the audience.

Obsessed. In a talk based on her best-selling book, Obsessed, Mika Brzezinski tackles the topic of food addiction. Known on Morning Joe for being adamant about improving America’s eating habits, she believes it is time we stop shaming ourselves and look at the food we eat. Covering topics like body image, eating disorders, childhood obesity, Brzezinski delves into the science of sugar and fat and what can be done to improve our health. Her presentation starts a dialogue on how the country became overweight and how we can turn the corner as a nation. With stories and insights from notable people in medicine, health, business, the arts, and politics – including her own daily struggle with food and body image, Brzezinski helps her audience find a healthier version of themselves.

  • Former US surgeon general discusses issues affecting Hispanics

    Grand Valley State University welcomed Dr. Antonia Novello Wednesday, Sept. 27, in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month. Novello was the first woman, and the first Hispanic, to be appointed the 14th surgeon general of the U.S. Public Health Service in 1990.

    Dr. Cynthia McCurren, dean of the Kirkhof College of Nursing at GVSU, introduced Novello through a personal memory of Novello’s appointment in 1990 and the important role that she not only played in her own life, but in the public health sphere as well.

    “As an individual that’s been in nursing for over 30 years, and therefore more broadly in health care, I’m very much impressed and influenced by those who provide leadership and who take on the responsibility of the leadership as much as at the national person,” McCurren said. “This is a person that I remember her appointment when I was going through my times working in health care, and my continuing to work in health care, she has made an impression on me.”
