Creator, Executive Producer, and Co-Host, Showtime's The Circus; Senior Political Analyst, NBC News and MSNBC; and Best-Selling Author of Game Change and Double Down: Game Change 2012

Mark Halperin has covered every American election since 1988. He is a creator, executive producer and co-host of Showtime’s political documentary series that followed the 2016 presidential campaigns, The Circus, which returned in early 2017 to cover the Trump Administration and the nation’s reaction to it. Halperin is also a senior political analyst for NBC News and MSNBC, and appears regularly on both channels, including on MSNBC's Morning Joe and Today.  He served as managing editor of Bloomberg Politics and host of Bloomberg TV and MSNBC's With All Due Respect during the 2016 election cycle, and is the most frequent guest in the history of PBS’ Charlie Rose.

TIME

Prior to joining Bloomberg in 2014, Halperin served as editor-at-large and senior political analyst for TIME, covering politics, elections and government for the magazine and TIME.com. He was also the creator and author of TIME.com’s “The Page,” a news and analysis tip sheet reporting on current political stories, campaign ads, TV clips, videos and campaign reactions from every news source, along with Halperin’s own analysis.

Books

He is the co-author of New York Times bestsellers Double Down: Game Change 2012 (2013) and Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime (2010); author of The Undecided Voter’s Guide to the Next President (2007); and co-author of The Way to Win: Taking the White House in 2008 (2006).

Game Change

HBO Films adapted Game Change, which received wide acclaim, for a movie, which debuted in March 2012 to an impressive 2.1 million viewers, making it one of HBO’s most-watched original movies ever. The film won five Emmy Awards and three Golden Globes, including outstanding TV movie or miniseries. Halperin is at work on the third Game Change installment, scheduled for publication in early 2018. HBO has also acquired the rights to the forthcoming book, for a planned mini series.

ABC News

Prior to joining TIME in April 2007, Halperin worked at ABC News for nearly 20 years, where he covered five presidential elections and served as political director from November 1997 to April 2007. In that role, he was responsible for political reporting and planning for the network’s television, radio and Internet coverage. He also appeared regularly on TV and radio as a correspondent and analyst, contributing commentary and reporting during election night coverage, presidential inaugurations, and State of the Union speeches.

Political Coverage

At ABC, Halperin reported on every major American political story, including working as a full-time reporter covering the Clinton presidential campaign in 1992 and the Clinton White House. He also covered major non-political stories, such as the O.J. Simpson criminal trial and the Oklahoma City bombing. Additionally, Halperin founded and edited “The Note” on abcnews.com, which was characterized as the most influential daily tip sheet in American politics by publications including The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and Vanity Fair.

Education

Halperin received his BA from Harvard University and resides in New York City with his wife Karen Avrich and their son, James.

Today in Politics and the Impact of the 2016 Presidential Election

With a turbulent environment in Washington and uncertainty across the country and around the world, many hurdles face the new administration. How do senior strategists in both parties see the political landscape? And how will all these storylines converge and interact tomorrow and in the future? Mark Halperin uses his more than 25 years of experience covering national politics and government to explain it all with insight, wit, insider knowledge, and no punches pulled. With an eye on what the latest political maneuvering means for big business, international relations, the American economy, and the average citizen, Halperin weaves behind-the-scenes anecdotes about the top players in American politics with his trademark rigorous, non-partisan analysis of policy, politics, the media and what is ahead for Democrats and Republicans as they look to the future.
