You might want to tune into NBC and MSNBC today and tomorrow. NBC Connecticut’s Todd Piro will be doing some of the heavy lifting on those stations.
Piro notes on his Facebook page he can be seen on “Early Today” at 4 a.m. on NBC and “First Look” at 5a.m. EST on MSNBC.
And speaking of media-types:
It doesn’t note she is a Connecticut celeb but well-known West Hartford writer, editor and author Susan Schoenberger and her book “The Virtues of Oxygen” got a shout-out in the August issue of Woman’s Day magazine.
Her novel is the topic in the WD Book Club “Readers’ Circle” feature in the monthly magazine. The Bergen Book Buddies of Bergen County , NJ book club read it and gave it a big “thumbs up.”
“This novel struck a chord like no other,” writes club founding member Barbara Barley in the magazine piece. “We definitely urge other clubs to read this page turner.”
When it comes to on-air and beyond power, CSNBC “Morning Joe” co-anchor Mika Brzezinski and CBS This Morning co-anchor Gayle King are heavyweights.
And the best part is they both have Hartford career roots.
The duo is coming to Hartford in May to share stories, support and success and failures at a new day-long conference expected to attract hundreds of the area’s most interesting and influential women.

Former CT anchor and tv personality, MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” co-anchor Mika Brzezinski and CT radio and tv personality Diane Smith met more than 18 years ago, developing a friendship that has grown and sustianed over the years.
But recently the friendship was tested beyond most, and the results… a self-awareness epiphany, a renewed commitment to good health and a look at the obesity crisis in America and a bond that most best friends don’t share.

For those who have been in Connecticut for a while, MSNBC’s Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski is still considered “ours” given her strong ties to the state. Brzezinski, who co-hosts the popular morning show with Joe Scarborough, was a popular former local tv anchor, still has a home here and lends her celebrity to local causes. Her fans here have celebrated her success and climb up the ladder.
But her somewhat suggestive September Vanity Fair photo shot, part of a profile package on the show hosts, is still causing some discussion. It has been dubbed “erotic capital,” a commodity that apparently is questionably necessary for female broadcast journalists, according to some. http://bit.ly/O6ZIok
