Joyce Jackson either knows all the players, the coaches or their wives. She also just won a Bronze Telly last week for her story of a breast cancer survivor who uses exercise as part of her recovery.
Joyce was born and raised in the city of New Orleans and graduated from Saint Mary’s Academy. Joyce later graduated from Loyola University and went on to obtain her MBA at Regent University in Virginia Beach Virginia.
Joyce started her broadcast career with an internship at WDSU, which led to her first job as a High School Sports Writer for the Times Picayune. Joyce went on to become a news producer at WLOX in Biloxi, Mississippi and spent much of her spare time in the sports department there, where she produced golf specials for amateur golfers. Joyce, then moved to News Channel 8 in Washington D.C. as the weekend sports anchor and Executive Producer. That is where she received her first Emmy nomination. Joyce later became a sports producer, then reporter and soon, sports anchor at WUSA, covering the Washington Redskins, the NCAA as well as the Washington Nationals. She touts some of her biggest interviews with such greats as retired professional boxer, Laila Ali and legendary sports announcer, Charlie Brotman. She also garnered one of the last interviews on the retirement of NBA great Michael Jordan. Joyce chuckles as she explains that comedian, actor and producer Bill Cosby walked in to that liveshot. Joyce is also proud of breaking the news that Daniel Snyder would become the owner of the Washington Redskins.
Joyce is currently the Media Coordinator for Laurel TV in Laurel Md., where she also hosts a fitness show. She is ready to get back on the anchor desk and in the field and use her extensive sports skills again.
