Jim Hoffer

Jim Hoffer is the ex-husband of MSNBC’s presenter and journalist, Mika Brzezinski. Her ex-hubby must be getting a kick of the latest on his ex-wife.

The 49-year-old ‘Morning Joe’ co-host, has become the new favorite cable hostess to hate, for Donald Trump, that is.

In case you missed it, this morning, Trump lashed out at the blonde on Twitter. The presidential candidate fired back at her repeatedly critical comments, saying

“Just heard that crazy and very dumb@morningmika had a mental breakdown while talking about me on the low ratings@Morning_Joe. Joe a mess!”

Mika has repeatedly criticized his campaign. Last week, he tweeted that she was “a neurotic and not very bright mess!” while implying she and Scarborough were romantically involved. The NY Daily News, notes.

The truth is, Trump might not be all that wrong on that last remark. Mika is after all, a divorced lady.

Just a couple of months ago, she made headlines after making a quiet split from her hubby, Jim Hoffer. The marriage lasted 23-years.


You probably recognize Jim Hoffer from WABC Eyewitness News, his gig as investigative reporter.

He was born James Patrick Hoffer.

According to their wedding announcement in the New York Times, the couple married in October 1993 on Block Island, Rhode Island at the West Side church.

At the time, Hoffer was working at WTNH-TV, the New Haven, Connecticut ABC affiliate. Brzezinski, the daughter of Zbigniew Brzezinski, President Jimmy Carter’s national security adviser, was working at WFSB-TV, the Hartford CBS affiliate.

He is the father of their two children, Carlie and Emilie Hoffer.

Jim Hoffer has snatched several Emmy awards though his over two decade career. He also won the National Edward R. Murrow Award for his investigative reports on Con Ed, the utility giant in the New York area,according to his WABC bio. He also received the DuPont Award from Columbia University for a report on low security at naval bases. Hoffer is also a graduate of Temple University.

In his most recent investigation for WABC, Hoffer told the story of Rikers Island inmate Justin Kuchma, who claimed that a correction officer sexually assaulted him while he was waiting to be sentenced.

Back in 2014, he investigated the gas leaks in New York and how Con Ed monitors them after an explosion in East Harlem. He found that Con Ed had a backlog of 811 leaks that had gone unrepaired, including 13 that could be considered hazardous.

Jim’s ex-wife and Joe Scarborough have been romantically linked a number of times, think there’s any truth to that?
