James Allen Miklaszewski (born 8 July 1949), better known as Jim or "Mik" Miklaszewski, is chief Pentagon correspondent for NBC News.[1] "Mik" was reporting live for the Today Show on September 11, 2001 when a plane hit the Pentagon, where his office is based.

Miklaszewski was news director for KRXV (Radio 15) in Fort Worth, Texas, and used the air name of "James Allen." In mid-1979 he worked as an account executive for the station after its all-news format was dropped in favor of an easy listening music format, changing its call letters to KMZK-AM (K-Music).

Following this, Miklaszewski was one of the CNN "Originals", serving as a National Correspondent and covering the Reagan White House. He was also a moderator for two CNN public affairs programs, Election Watch and Newsmaker Sunday. His series, After Nam, a documentary on the Vietnam War ten years after the fall of Saigon, earned the Edward R. Murrow award for journalism.

Upon joining NBC in 1985, Miklaszewski was a Bush Sr. and Clinton administrations.

Known to his colleagues in broadcasting as "Mik", Miklaszewski is a Cudahy, Wisconsin native.[2] He is married to Cheryl Heyse, and they have two sons, James and Jeffrey.
