Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski has been given a monthly column at Cosmopolitan, the magazine announced today.

The column, which launches in the October issue, is called “Getting What You Want.” When that phrase appears on Cosmo covers it’s typically followed by “in bed” or “from your man,” but Ms. Brzezinski will write about “career confidence, empowerment, and getting ahead in the workplace,” according to the press release. 

“I’ve always been a huge fan of Mika on Morning Joe,” editor-in-chief Kate White said in the announcement. “She’s incredibly smart and perceptive. But once I read her books, I knew she could also offer young women invaluable strategies for attaining the lives and the career successes they fiercely desire.”
