Joy Reid Makes Journalism History

With the premiere earlier this week of her show, “The ReidOut,” Joy Reid became the first Black woman to host a prime time talk show on a major network.

Reid, 51, replaces Chris Matthews, who retired in March amid allegations of sexual misconduct in the newsroom.

When her show premiered Monday on MSNBC, shouted, “surprise! There will be a Black lady in prime time,” according to theGrio.com, where she served from 2011 to 2014 as managing editor.

The mother of two who has served as an MSNBC national correspondent and political commentator as well as press secretary for the Obama campaign in South Florida where she lived for 14 years, is originally from New York.

She graduated from Howard University and later returned to Florida to pursue a longtime passion for news and reporting.
