Willie, Mika Teach Miss America About “Horrible Business” of Being a News Anchor

joe_1-28.bmpThis morning on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Willie Geist and Mika Brzezinski helped newly-crowned Miss America Katie Stamm learn about her dream job — news anchor. At least it was before the lesson began.

Taking over the NBC Nightly News set, Stamm went through a crash course, including the need to change her first name (there already is a ‘Katie’).

Some more advice from the segment:

• Willie: “One of the other important things about being a news anchor is treating people beneath you with disrespect.”

• Willie: “It’s about going out to lunch with people, it’s about hanging out in the make-up room, it’s about Googling yourself.”

• Mika: “It’s a horrible business and it hurts.”
