As journalists, we ask questions all the time. But we tweaked our standard practice for the year-end issue of the Central Penn Business Journal. Here’s a peek at our interview with Mika Brzezinski, co-host of “Morning Joe” on MSNBC. She and her husband own a house in Lititz.
When Mika Brzezinski wants to get away from the craziness of co-hosting her morning news program “Morning Joe” on MSNBC, she likes to hit the road with her husband, WABC investigative reporter Jim Hoffer, and head to Lancaster County.
They’ve had a house in Hoffer’s hometown of Lititz for the past few years, but lately she doesn’t get to spend nearly as much time there as she’d like, partly because of taking her “Know Your Value” message on the road.
Q: Was the “Know Your Value” tour a success?
A: It’s been a remarkable success. We had a sold-out crowd in all five cities and recently did our final event in Orlando. But we’re going to build on it now and keep going. I don’t know yet how many more cities we’re going to do, but we’ll be announcing a new tour very soon, probably for the spring.
How long have you had the house in Lititz?
For five or six years. We normally live in the New York City area, but Lititz is our home away from home. My husband grew up there and always wanted to put down roots in his hometown. His three brothers still live in the area, too — Lititz, Ephrata, Millersville. The Hoffer brothers are quite a lively, raucous bunch. Whenever there’s a family event, they’ll play volleyball and get into a huge brawl. I think it’s only half-serious. But it’s a great family.
