Reid was born Joy-Ann Lomena in Brooklyn, New York. Her father was from the Congo and her mother from British Guiana; the two met in graduate school at the University of Iowa in Iowa City. Reid grew up in Denver, Colorado, then attended Harvard University, where she studied documentary filmmaking in the Visual and Environmental Studies department.
Reid began her journalism career in 1997, leaving New York and her job at a business consulting firm to begin working in South Florida for a WSVN Channel 7 morning show.
Reid was a 2003 Knight Center for Specialized Journalism fellow.
From 2006–2007, Reid was the co-host of Wake Up South Florida, a morning radio talk show broadcast from Radio One’s then-Miami affiliate WTPS, alongside "James T" Thomas. She served as managing editor of The Grio (2011–2014), a political columnist for The Miami Herald (2003–2015), and the editor of The Reid Report political blog (2000–2014).
From February 2014 to February 2015, Reid hosted her own afternoon cable news show, The Reid Report. The show was canceled on February 19, 2015 and Reid was shifted to a new role as an MSNBC national correspondent.
Reid currently hosts AM Joy, a political weekend-morning talk show from 10:00AM to 12:00PM on MSNBC, as well as appearing on other MSNBC shows.
Reid is the author of the book Fracture: Barack Obama, the Clintons, and the Racial Divide, published by HarperCollins on September 8, 2015.
In 2015, Reid gave the inaugural Ida B. Wells lecture at Wake Forest University's Anna Julia Cooper Center. She received an award from the Women's Media Center in 2016 and was host of the annual awards in 2014.
In 2017, Reid sparked controversy for her support of journalist and anti-Russia conspiracy theorist Louise Mensch, whom Reid approvingly cited on her show and Twitter account. Reid has since become a critic of Mensch.
Reid is married to Jason Reid, a documentary film editor for the Discovery Channel. They have three children.
