From being a guest multiple times on Martin Bashir Live to becoming an on-the-scene correspondent covering the Trayvon Martin case The Grio’s and The Reid Report Joy-Ann Reid is both engaging and authoritative. Her reporting has a visceral quality that makes me ask “where has she been?” Joy-Ann possesses that unique quality solid anchorwomen employ when communicating through the screen. Her responses to Martin are focused, concise and information-dense. Her on-site analyses are penetrating and insightful. Joy-Ann is always an outstanding panelist/guest on the show, but out in the field is clearly where she makes her best impression and greatest impact. In rousing appreciation I want to thank all the souls and stars that aligned to bring this savvy communications jewel to the Trayvon Martin case. What an intelligent and timely find. Thank you, my man Martin.
