Morning Joe Gives Andrea Mitchell a Round of Applause for 40 Years at NBC

On Morning Joe on Wednesday the cast and crew gave NBC veteran Andrea Mitchell a brief round of applause welcoming her to the show today and in celebration of her forty years as a journalist for NBC News.

Over the past week, a number of NBC shows have welcomed Mitchell as a guest and congratulated her on her tenure, including Meet the Press, Today, and Velshi & Ruhle, but the most comprehensive was the video released during Mitchell’s own show, celebrating her career.

On Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski noted that Andrea is on duty many hours a day, and mentioned a recent InStyle profile of Mitchell which revealed she drinks up to 16 espressos a day.

“Ever since you told that to InStyle it’s all I think about. All the shots. The espresso shots,” said Brzezinski.

“Let’s hope it’s healthy,” Mitchell replied.

It sure seems to be.
