Joy Reid is the host of AM Joy airing every Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. ET on MSNBC. She is also the author of the 2015 book, Fracture: Barack Obama, the Clintons, and the Racial Divide, a top-selling book on Amazon.com in the Politics category. Reid was the former Managing Editor of theGrio.com, a daily online news and opinion platform devoted to delivering stories and perspectives that reflect and impact African-American audiences. While serving in this role, she became one of the first national reporters to cover the Trayvon Martin case in depth. Reid joined theGrio.com with experience as a freelance columnist for the Miami Herald and as editor of the political blog The Reid Report.

Joy is also a former talk radio producer and host for Radio One, and previously served as an online news editor for the NBC affiliate WTVJ in Miramar, FL. During the 2004 presidential campaign, Reid served as the Florida deputy communications director for the 527 America Coming Together initiative, and was a press aide in the final stretch of President Barack Obama's Florida campaign in 2008. Joy's columns and articles have appeared in New York magazine, The Daily Beast, the Miami Herald, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, the South Florida Times and on Salon.com. In May 2016, Reid was honored by the Miami Coalition of Christians and Jews with the Hank Meyer National Headliner Award, an award previously given to fellow journalists Chuck Todd and Tom Brokaw, among others. She is currently producing a documentary, The Fight Years—which takes a look into the sport of boxing during the 1950s and 1960s in Miami.

Reid graduated from Harvard University in 1991 with a concentration in film, and is a 2003 Knight Center for Specialized Journalism fellow. She currently resides in Brooklyn with her husband and family.
