NBC News Biography Official website

James Allen Miklaszewski (born 1949), better known as Jim or "Mik" Miklaszewski, is chief Pentagon correspondent for NBC News.[1] "Mik" was reporting live for the Today Show on September 11, 2001 when a plane hit the Pentagon, where his office is based.

Miklaszewski was news director for KRXV-AM (Radio 15) in Fort Worth, Texas, and used the air name of "James Allen." In mid-1979 he worked as an account executive for the station after its all-news format was dropped in favor of an easy listening music format, changing its call letters to KMZK-AM (K-Music).

Following this, Miklaszewski was one of the CNN "Originals", serving as a National Correspondent and covering the Reagan White House. He was also a moderator for two CNN public affairs programs, Election Watch and Newsmaker Sunday. His series, After Nam, a documentary on the Vietnam War ten years after the fall of Saigon, earned the Edward R. Murrow award for journalism.

Upon joining NBC in 1985, Miklaszewski was a White House correspondent during the Bush Sr. and Clinton administrations.

Known to his colleagues in broadcasting as "Mik", Miklaszewski is a Cudahy native.[2] He is married to Cheryl Heyse, and they have two sons, James and Jeffrey.
