Cambridge, MA – Harvard Kennedy School’s Institute of Politics (IOP) announced today that Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, co-hosts of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” will serve as Visiting Fellows this summer and fall.

“For several years, ‘Morning Joe’ has been at the forefront of covering millennials in politics, and at Harvard they will engage directly with the young people who will reconnect America and serve as future political leaders,” said Congressman Bill Delahunt, Interim Director of the Institute of Politics.

Scarborough and Brzezinski will begin their fellowship appointments with a Washington, DC event with the IOP students and alumni in the Summer in Washington program. This fall, they will travel to Harvard to participate in campus events with students.

Joe Scarborough is the co-host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” and the author of the New York Times bestseller “The Last Best Hope” and bestsellers “Rome Wasn’t Burnt in a Day” and “The Right Path.” Scarborough served as a member of Congress from 1994 to 2001.

Mika Brzezinski is the co-host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” founder of the “Know Your Value” movement, and the author of three best-selling books, “All Things At Once,” “Knowing Your Value,” and “Obsessed: America’s Food Addiction and My Own.”

Since 1966, the IOP Fellows Program has brought professionals in politics and public service to Harvard to share their experiences with students and the Harvard community and explore the most pressing public issues of the day. Former Fellows include Senators, Governors, journalists, and foreign leaders.
