Mick Cornett - Host

Mick Cornett is a former TV personality, businessman, and 4-Term Mayor of Oklahoma City. Last year he was named to Fortune Magazine’s list of the The 50 Greatest Leaders in the World. His latest book The Next American City was published by Putnam/Random House and was released in September.

Cornett spent 20 years as a television sportscaster/news anchor/sports play-by-play broadcaster. Following the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995 he diverted his attention to public service and served as a full-time college professor before winning a seat on the Oklahoma City Council in 2001.

In 2004 he won the city-wide election for Mayor and thus began a series of record-setting political victories. His re-election percentage of 87% in 2006 is the highest in city history. During his tenure, Oklahoma City experienced an economic renaissance that is still in progress.

Cornett is best known for helping to bring an NBA franchise to Oklahoma City and for addressing the community’s shortcomings in areas of health and wellness. His leadership to pass the transformational MAPS 3 initiative has spurred an enormous amount of private investment into the city.

Newsweek called him one of The 5 Most Innovative Mayors in America. The European based World Mayor Organization named him the second-best Mayor in the World. And Governing Magazine proclaimed him a Public Official of the Year. He was the President of the United States Conference of Mayors in 2016-17. Cornett decided not to run for a 5th term as Mayor, and ended his tenure earlier this year. His 2018 Gubernatorial bid ended when he lost a Republican runoff election.

He has a Journalism degree from the University of Oklahoma and an MBA from New York University.
