Jim Miklaszewski –Wisconsin Native–Ending NBC Reporting Career
One of the true professionals who knows how to gather the facts and report them will soon retire from NBC News. Jim Miklaszewski will retire this year after being with the network for more than 30 years.
His reporting allowed the rest of us to better understand the military and defense operations. We turned to Miklaszewski when we wanted some sense made of the hot spots in the world and the role our military might play. His brand of journalism was essential when the world seemed to tilt more on its axis. He was an essential part of the news world for me for a very long time.
Mik, as he’s known around the newsroom, was at the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001, reporting on the military’s response to the terror attacks in New York, when the Pentagon was hit. The Cudahy native from Wisconsin joined NBC from CNN in 1985 as a White House correspondent.
