A Barry University alumna and an accomplished national media personality, Joy Taylor exemplifies the University mission, achieving professionally while putting into practice the values we live and teach at Barry.
Taylor co-hosts Fox Sports’ “The Herd with Colin Cowherd” as well as the popular Joy Taylor Show on Fox Sports Radio Saturdays 2-4PM ET. Before catapulting to the national stage, she spent several years in Miami radio. She also previously served as the host of “Thursday Night Live” and “Fantasy Football Today” on CBSSports.com. Taylor got her start in radio at Barry University though, hosting her own radio show “The Noise” on the University station while earning her degree.
Last year, Taylor established a scholarship for Barry students pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Communication disciplines in order to support the next generation of journalists and broadcasters. She noted at the time that a personal goal of hers is to foster diversity in the industry, adding that Barry helped her achieve her dreams. Joy Taylor recently established the Joy Taylor Foundation.
Ms. Taylor will address our graduates as Commencement Speaker and will receive an Honorary Doctor of Humane Letters.
