Locker Room Talk: Fox Sports 1 TV and Radio Host Joy Taylor

Joy Taylor, who as her bio states,“kicked down the doors of the boy's club that is sports talk radio and never looked back.” She is the host of The Joy Taylor Show, as well as co-host of The Herd, alongside Colin Cowherd on Fox Sports Radio and FS1. Additionally, she hosts the Maybe I’m Crazy podcast, and Thursday Night Football Scouts Feed on Amazon Prime. Joy’s career in radio has spanned jobs in Miami, Pittsburgh, and now Los Angeles.

Joy joins Locker Room Talk co-hosts Julie Alexandria and Jennifer Alexandria to discuss how women in the sports reporting industry are under a microscope 24/7, but Joy is very quick to let everyone know that their personal preference for her esthetics, is not her problem. They also talk about how we live in a time where “fake news” seems to trend more than real news. And if you really want to drive Joy and the ladies of the Locker Room crazy, just say something not based in fact, which they all agree, across social media these days, is not hard to find, as everyone has an opinion, including the internet trolls.

Joy opens up about how being a survivor of domestic violence allowed her to use her voice to help not only empower other survivors, but also educate others on the issue so that when women raise their voices, others should not be quick to discredit what they have to say, and she tells us why it’s important to not victimize a victim.

These conversations and more on Locker Room Talk. Future episodes include: Maria Torres, staff writer at The Athletic, as well as Lisa Byington from the Milwaukee Bucks, who is the first female full-time play-by-play broadcaster for a major men’s professional sports team.

Locker Room Talk is a weekly show highlighting the achievements of women and Latinas in sports. Hosted by Julie Alexandria and Jennifer Mercedes, two Latinas with more than 20 years of sports industry reporting experience, the show celebrates women in all aspects of the sports world by recognizing their contributions and the barriers they have overcome in their journeys. New episodes of Locker Room Talk debut every Wednesday on La Vida Baseball social channels.
