MSNBC 'Morning Joe' Hosts to Talk Politics at WilliamsWILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — MSNBC personalities Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski will lead a presentation and discussion titled "Beyond the Midterms: A New Way Forward," Tuesday, Nov. 2, at 6:30 p.m. at the ’62 Center for Theatre and Dance at Williams College. This free event is open to the public but tickets are required.
Scarborough, a former Republican congressman from Florida touted as a future national candidate, and Brzezinski, a Williams Bicentennial Medalist and member of the class of 1989, will discuss with Williams students the challenges of governing in Washington today. How can the nation make tough decisions given the apparently fractious system? The session will be taped for excerpting the following day on MSNBC.
"There's a lot of questions about America and the future of the two-party system and Joe and I get asked to speak about this all the time," Brzezinski said. "We decided to get away from all of the chatter on election night and talk to America’s future leaders, so I immediately thought of my alma mater Williams."
For tickets, contact the '62 Center box office, Tuesday through Saturday, from 1 to 5 p.m. at 413-597-2425.
Scarborough is the host of MSNBC's "Morning Joe." The program features interviews with top newsmakers and politicians and in-depth analysis of the day's biggest stories. Scarborough served in Congress from 1994 to 2001 and served on the Judiciary and the Armed Services committees. After leaving Congress, he was named by President Bush to the President's Council on the 21st Century Workforce, where he served with Labor Secretary Elaine Chao, national labor officials and business leaders.
Brzezinski is the co-host of "Morning Joe" and of the Citadel Media radio program "The Joe Scarborough Show." In January 2010 she published her memoir, "All Things At Once," a New York Times best seller. Brzezinski has also been an anchor for "CBS Evening News Weekend Edition" and a CBS News correspondent. She is the daughter of foreign policy expert and former National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski.
