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). He began his radio career in Wisconsin, working in Madison and Lacrosse, WI.
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 White House correspondent during the Bush Sr. and Clinton administrations.
"Mik" was reporting live for the Today Show on September 11, 2001 when a plane hit the Pentagon, where his office was then based.
Known to his colleagues in broadcasting as "Mik", Miklaszewski is a Cudahy, Wisconsin native. He is married to Cheryl Heyse, and they have two sons, James and Jeffrey and two daughters-in-law, Cybill and Samantha. He retired from NBC on September 28, 2016.
