Registration for tickets is now closed
With the 2008 Presidential election behind us and the current economic conditions changing the world as we know it, MSNBC anchor Mika Brzezinski reports on it. She will present, “Breaking News,” at Lake Erie College Oct. 2, 2009 at 8 p.m. in the Morley Music Building.
Brzezinszki is featured as part of the Alumni Weekend/Homecoming activities and her appearance is made possible by an endowment established by Anne Kilcawley Christman '33.
A veteran anchor and reporter who has covered some of the biggest stories in the last decade, Brzezinski gives audiences a behind-the-scenes look at the stories and people making news. As a veteran news anchor for Weekend Today and co-host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Brzezinski brings her trademark energy and irreverence to the news that matters to people all over the world. Brzezinski engages in a lively question-and-answer session and gives in-depth analysis to audience questions on: politics, culture and the media business; the existence (or lack thereof) of bias in the press; and the newsmakers and personalities who shape our times.
Prior to joining MSNBC in January 2007, Brzezinski was an anchor of the CBS Evening News Weekend Edition and a CBS News correspondent who frequently contributed to CBS Sunday Morning and 60 Minutes. Brzezinski joined CBS News in 1997 as the anchor of CBS News Up To The Minute, but took a short hiatus in 2000 to co-host MSNBC’s weekday afternoon program Homepage. In September 2001, she returned to CBS to become their principal Ground Zero reporter for the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Brzezinski began her journalism career in 1991 in Hartford, Connecticut, as a general assignment reporter at WTIC. A year later she joined WFSB, also in Hartford, and quickly became the weekday morning anchor.
A native of New York City, Brzezinski is the daughter of Foreign Policy Expert and Former National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski. She attended Williams College and received a degree in English. Brzezinski lives in Manhattan with her husband and two children.
