From Her Polish Roots to Her Burgeoning Career
Mika Brzezinski was born in New York City, to parents who were of Polish and Czech descent. Her father was Zbigniew Brzezinski, a foreign policy expert and former National Security Advisor. Her mother, Emilie Anna Benesovà, was the grandniece of Czechoslovakia’s former president, Edvard Benes. Mika’s father was a professor at Columbia when Mika was born, but when he was named National Security Advisor by the newly elected President Jimmy Carter, the family moved to a town in Virginia closer to Washington D.C. in 1976.
During her high school days, she attended The Madeira School and then went on to graduate from Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusetts with a major in English.
Mika Brzezinski’s career in journalism began in 1990, when she was an assistant at ABC’s World News This Morning. She moved on to work with a Fox affiliate news station in Connecticut, where she became a general assignments reporter. From then on, she continued to improve her career working for various news networks. In 1997, she joined CBS network news as a correspondent and anchor for their overnight Up to the Minute new program.

After a brief hiatus, she went on to work for CBS rival, MSNBC, but made her return to CBS News in 2001. It was during this time that Brzezinski rose to fame for her coverage in New York City during the traumatic attacks on 9/11, as she reported live from the scene when the South Tower of the World Trade Center collapsed.
During her time with CBS News, Mika Brzezinski served as a CBS News correspondent, a substitute anchor, as well as a segment anchor for breaking news stories and routine updates. She was subsequently fired from CBS News and went back to MSNBC, lending her hand to different areas of the news network and appearing on several of their news programs. But she resigned from all other shows when Joe Scarborough offered her the position of being his co-ancho on Morning Joe. The two have been a staple in morning news for years, and clearly their chemistry was evident even off the air. People couldn’t help but fall in love with this dynamic morning duo, and with their recent engagement news, fans are just as excited!

She’s Walked Down the Aisle Once Before
Mika Brzezinski was married once before. Earlier in her career, she married another news reporter named James Patrick Hoffer during the time they both worked for the same cable news station. The two married in 1993, but divorced in 2016. Does Mika Brzezinski have children? Yes, in fact! Though the two didn’t work out, Brzezinski and Hoffer share two young daughters together, Emilie and Carlie. Mika Brzezinski’s divorce and subsequent engagement seems sudden to some, and caused a bit of speculation about a possible Mika Brzezinski affair with her new fiancé. But people are always going to have their opinions, even when there’s no evidence. What is evident, however, is that Mika looks happier now than ever!
