Behind the scenes of Morning Joe at Ohio State University
On Wednesday, October 29, msnbc’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski traveled to Buckeye Nation for a special Morning Joe broadcast from Ohio State University. The program took place in conjunction with the 2014 National Middle Market Summit. Joe and Mika interviewed prominent guests including Former Gov. Mitt Romney (R-MA), Ohio Senators Sherrod Brown (D) and Rob Portman (R), General Electric CEO Jeffrey Immelt, AOL co-founder Steve Case, and Christine Poon, dean of the Ohio State University Fisher College of Business.
Morning Joe set up camp at the Ohio Union on OSU’s campus, where fans flocked to watch the live show as early as 5:30am. Following the broadcast, Joe and Mika presented to top executives from middle market companies (corporations that make $10 million to $1 billion in annual revenue) at the 2014 National Middle Market Summit. The duo spoke of their wildly different upbringings and discussed the importance of the private sector in job creation.
