Alex Wagner Is Still a Work in Progress—And That’s the Point

The journalism bug bit early for Alex Wagner. Never mind that the MSNBC anchor says her mother remembers her initially wanting to be a makeup artist. Wagner proudly recalls creating her first dream job—designating herself as restaurant reviewer for her elementary school newspaper. “I was not getting paid to review Armand’s Pizzeria,” she tells Glamour, laughing at the memory. 

That came later for the host of Alex Wagner Tonight, the prime-time cable news program in which she delves into some of the days’ headlines and conducts on-set and field interviews with newsmakers (Governor Gavin Newsom, Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, and comedian Trevor Noah), as well as those impacted by current events (election officials facing security threats, relocated asylum seekers, and teachers adjusting to new curricula). The show that launched in mid-August, and that Wagner describes as “a work in progress,” has made her the only Asian American host of a prime-time cable news program.
