Since 2007, Morning Joe has been a weekday talk show that airs every morning on NBC. It stars former Republican Congressman Joe Scarborough along with his co-host Mika Brzezinski, who has been Scarborough's wife since 2018. The duo discusses the news of the day along with a panel of experts who offer additional insight. The show has earned consistently good ratings over the years, in part due to the ever-revolving Morning Joe cast members who pop in from time to time. 

Some big news in the realm of journalism regularly come onto the show to serve as guests and contributors. Tom Brokaw, a legend in the industry, may have retired from being a regular news anchor, but he went on the show regularly to offer his insight into the world of politics. Morning Joe also regularly sees Jim Cramer, best known as being the host of Mad Money, who frequently discusses developments in the financial world. 

Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski are great as hosts, but sometimes, the contributors overshadow them. This list counts down the best regular guests on the show, old and new alike, as decided by you, the reader. Vote for the talking heads you like best so that the best contributors on Morning Joe come out on top.
