Joy Reid: “My faith has been key”

We’re only part way through 2020 and Real Life with John Cowan has already featured an impressive array of guests.

One of our recent guests was journalist Joy Reid, who has returned to NZ after two years as TVNZ’s Europe Correspondent. The role was a dream job for Joy, who moved to London with her husband and two young children. During her time, she covered everything from Brexit right through to royal babies and weddings.

Joy said it was her Christian faith that helped her navigate some of the heavier stories she covered while in the UK – including last year’s shootings in her home town of Christchurch.

“Having a belief in God has really helped me refocus things and helped me get a bit of perspective to make me the best journalist I can be.” Joy Reid
