Adweek’s Third Brand Visionary is Bono

Our sister publication Adweek had previously tipped the majority of those set to be celebrated at a September 30 gala event to be MC-ed by Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski. But today, they added two more notable honorees: U2 lead singer Bono and the charity he co-founded, (RED).

Deborah Dugan, CEO of (RED), will accept the honors on Bono’s behalf during Advertising Week at Cipriani Downtown. Adweek has also partnered with (RED) for a year-long initiative to rally brands around the global fight against AIDS. From today’s announcement:

While Adweek Brand Genius recognizes excellence in brand-building efforts over the past year, the Brand Visionary honoree acknowledges a career’s worth of achievement and celebrates an individual’s propulsion of their cause or brand to worldwide renown. Previous Brand Visionary recipients are former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg (2012) and Russell Simmons (2013).

Morning Media Menu: February 2

mornmm.gifToday on the Menu: Willie Geist of MSNBC’s Morning Joe joins us, fresh out of the studio (make-up and all!) to discuss yesterday’s Superbowl ads, and whether Blago, Palin, and Kennedy’s botched time in the media spotlight has done them irreparable damage.

Also, could Blago have a television career ahead of him? Says Geist: “I think he’s too crazy.”

Shots From Today’s Daily Beast Inaugural Brunch

The Daily Beast and Morning Joe crews jointly hosted a well-attended (though tricky to-get-to courtesy of a myriad of road blocks) brunch this morning at the Council on Foreign Relations building. While plenty of bold-faces mingled the room imbibing “Obamimosas” and quiche, the star of the hour had to be David Axlerod whose hand everyone wanted to shake.

We bumped into Peggy Noonan who told us that after the pilot on her US Airways flight from New York yesterday came on to announce they were departing for Washington D.C. the entire plane had burst into applause.

Jay Carney
, who is departing Time to be Joe Biden‘s director of communications showed us his transition Blackberry (they get a new one next Tuesday) and said that there will be no AIMing in the Vice President’s office, either (Joe will have to give up his Berry, also). He also said that he doesn’t foresee himself coming back to news reporting after his stint in the government, though “maybe as a columnist.” Of course what journalism will look like in four to eight years is anyone’s guess! Pics from the brunch after the jump.
