‘Morning Joe’ in Chicago with Oprah Winfrey & Tom Brokaw

“Morning Joe” this morning was a tribute to Chicago — and of course, you can’t mention Chicago without Oprah Winfrey. Alongside hosts Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski, and Willie Geist, special guest Tom Brokaw said of Chicago, “This is not just Chicago, this is Oprahland. You come to Chicago and when you’re taken into the Oprahland, it’s really a remarkable experience.”

TVNewser’s Alissa Krinsky, who took the photo below, was at the taping this morning. She’ll have much more later including interviews with Joe and Mika, as well as with incoming Washington, D.C. bureau chief Antoine Sanfuentes and NBC News president Steve Capus who was in London last week heading up planning for his anchors and reporters covering the chaos in Egypt: “You have to think about safety first.”
