The quote “Like father, like son” is quite relevant in the case of Joey Scarborough, the son of American Cable News host and former Florida Congressman Joe Scarborough. Joey followed in his father’s footsteps and graduated with a degree in Political Science and Journalism from the University of Alabama.

Let’s take a look into the former NBC News Social Media Editor, and New York Daily News Reporter’s life.

Joey-Career on Journalism

Joey displayed an interest in journalism from an early age, writing video game and music reviews for a local newspaper launched by his father, The Florida Sun

At the University of Alabama, he wrote for the school newspaper, The Crimson White, covering the high-profile student government beat. After graduating in the fall of 2011, he moved back to New York with numerous journalism internships. 

He worked at a fashion P.R. firm for a while. Then he landed a job at the Daily News. He is currently believed to be a freelancer since he no longer works for NBC or any other known organization.

Parents Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski

Joey’s father was certainly an influence in his life since he followed exactly in his father’s footsteps from early on. His father’s reaction to him getting a job at Daily News was filled with ecstasy, and amidst the rumors of nepotism, the joy couldn’t be subsided.

Joey’s father Joe is currently the co-host of Morning Joe on MSNBC. He hosts the show alongside his wife, Mika Brzezinski. At the debut of the show, both co-hosts were married: Scarborough to his second wife, and Brzezinski to her former husband of 23 years. 

Long before they became a thing, their behavior made a lot of sense. Their chemistry and their on-screen antics fueled speculation about their relationship off-camera for years. The couple tied the knot on November 25, 2018.

Socio-Political Stance

Joey, despite having a republican ex-Congressman for a father and serving as a Republican in Florida’s 1st congressional district during his youth, the young Scarborough clearly sides with the left-wing and probably identifies as a Democrat.

Joey’s Twitter account.

His Twitter feed is full of retweets against the atrocious acts of the Trump administration such as detention of immigrant children at the borders, inability to act in the wake of mass shootings, hesitation to condemn the KKK, racism, re-tweets after the apparent suicide of Jeffrey Epstein, and other social issues.
