Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski & Willie Geist Celebrate 10 Years on Air Together:'We Genuinely Like Each Other'

18 September 2017 6:11 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It’s been a decade since Morning Joe, the MSNBC talk show featuring former congressman Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski and Willie Geist first aired.

During that time, they’ve gotten into plenty of on-air arguments, a Twitter war with President Trump, and Scarborough and Brzezinski surprised the nation when they announced earlier this year that they’d fallen in love and gotten engaged. (“I’m very happy,” Brzezinski tells People of working everyday with her now-fiancé.)

But perhaps even more surprising to Brzezinski and Scarborough is that their show has been on the air for this long. “We’re the longest-running anchor team on TV, »

Artists Behind ‘Tribute in Light’ 9/11 Memorial Continue to Inspire: ‘People Could Start Looking Up Again’

11 September 2017 7:34 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

On the night of September 11, 2001, artists Paul Myoda and Julian Laverdiere watched from Brooklyn as an ashy and gaseous cloud formed over the remnants of the World Trade Center. The lights that illuminated Ground Zero during rescue efforts set this plume of smoke aglow, and through it, both men felt they could still see the buildings. This mirage gave them an idea, which they eventually turned into “Tribute in Light,” an ephemeral memorial that has served as a vigil for victims on the anniversary of the attacks every year since.

Ava DuVernay & Netflix announce Central Park Five series

Tony Sokol Jul 7, 2017

Ana DuVernay follows up 13th with a hard look at the Central Park Five, for Netflix...

The Central Park jogger case divided New York City at the end of the 80s. A group of young men attacked, raped and sodomized a complete stranger, Trisha Meili, leaving her in a coma for 12 days. Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana and Korey Wise, were convicted.

Because of the press, it became embedded in the minds of New Yorkers, and beyond. Donald Trump put out $85,000 full-page ads calling for New York to reinstate the death penalty. Almost to this day, the president states with conviction that those Five Harlem teenagers are guilty. But the Central Park Five didn’t do it: their confessions were coerced, and they spent years locked up for a crime they didn't do.

Michael Bloomberg’s Coal Documentary Examines Complex National Issue

23 June 2017 9:15 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Michael Bloomberg hasn’t been mayor of New York City for three and a half years, but the connections he and his team made at City Hall are still coming into play — especially in the release of “From the Ashes,” the environmental documentary that is the first feature film to be produced by Bloomberg Philanthropies.

The company partnered on Michael Bonfiglio’s film with Radical Media, the production company that worked with the Bloomberg administration on projects including the Made in NY program. “From the Ashes” premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival, which the mayor’s office was instrumental in founding. The documentary, which airs on National Geographic June 25, is being promoted with screenings in partnership with an international network of city mayors, as well as with short-form content for social media.

“What we’re trying to do is leverage and think creatively about the ways that we can tap into this vast network of Bloomberg’s reach,” said Katherine Oliver, the Bloomberg Associates exec who executive produced the documentary. At City Hall, she served as the commissioner of the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment, widely credited for the post-9/11 boom in the city’s entertainment industry.

When Bloomberg and Radical embarked on “From the Ashes” more than two years ago, no one much talked about the coal industry and its effects on the environment. Since the presidential election, it’s top of mind, and the filmmakers found themselves with a feature that had taken on a new urgency. The doc’s approach is to use the data-driven focus of the Bloomberg brand to bolster an evenhanded, human story that looks at a complicated issue from all sides — and from both sides of the aisle. “We wanted to go after a really broad audience who may not all agree with us,” Bonfiglio noted.

No other feature plans are brewing for Bloomberg, but the organization will continue to focus on using its wide net of media and tech connections to get people engaged with the causes it cares about.

Radical Media chairman and CEO Jon Kamen thinks socially minded content creators should take note. “I always said one of the greatest gifts Bloomberg [Philanthropies] could give the philanthropic world was a better set of tools to talk about the issues that they care about,” he said.

JFK’s Grandson Jack Introduces Obama for Profile in Courage Award

If it weren’t for former President Barack Obama, Jack Schlossberg, 24, “might still be sitting on my couch, eating Doritos and watching sports.”

The comment, from John F. Kennedy’s only grandson, came as he introduced Obama at the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation’s May dinner gala Sunday night, where Obama was honored with the annual Profile in Courage Award.

Schlossberg and mother Caroline Kennedy presented Obama with the award. The recent Yale graduate likened the impact the 44th president had on him with the influence his grandfather, JFK, had on the country.

Earlier today we shared a video of Oprah entertaining the idea of running for President in 2020.   While her video seemed to be more “hopeful” than anything it certainly doesn’t mean she’s ruling it out.  However, another name has emerged for the Democratic ticket.  And this name is apparently serious about it.  The name is none other than Bob Iger, CEO of Disney. THR’s sources note that Iger has consulted with Michael Bloomberg, who served as Mayor of New York City for 10 years without previously holding public office. “Regardless of who is on the Democratic ticket in 2020,” says
