Geist joined MSNBC in 2005 as a senior producer of The Situation with Tucker Carlson. During the show’s development, producers decided Geist’s newsroom banter with Carlson ought to be part of the show. Geist spent the last segment of The Situation (later called Tucker) reporting and offering his unique spin on the day’s news.

Geist came to MSNBC from the world of sports television. He was a producer and writer for the critically-acclaimed sports debate show I, Max, hosted by Max Kellerman on Fox Sports Net. Before that, Geist gave up a promising post-graduate career of liquor delivery to enter journalism as an editor and producer for CNN/Sports Illustrated, a 24-hour sports network based in Atlanta.

I wouldn't trust The Dollar Bills to wash my limousine, let alone give me financial advice. With American minds like these poisoning our society, it's no wonder the Chinese are passing us by."

Geist graduated from Vanderbilt University in Nashville where he was a contributing editor of The Vanderbilt Hustler, a school newspaper that is not nearly as kinky as it sounds. Geist lives in New York City with his wife and their two children. He is proficient in Microsoft Word.
