Note from BW of Brazil: There was no way this successful black woman would remain out of the spotlight for very long! The last time we presented journalist Joyce Ribeiro, it was under the unfortunate circumstance of her being released from her slot as a host over at SBT-TV a little over a year ago. As black faces in Brazil’s news media are still pretty rare, her loss took away one of the few faces of color that was seen on a regular basis in an anchor role. It’s good to see she’s back and this time rolling solo and during prime time! Welcome back Joyce! It’s good to see you again!

There is still a lack of blacks in the world of live news journals stand, but the TV Cultura is giving us something to celebrate: Joyce Ribeiro on the bench of Jornal da Cultura. She becomes the first black woman to take on the bench of a daily news jornal solo and in prime time among all broadcasters of the free channels.
Joyce was born on April 23, 1979 in São Paulo, graduated in journalism from the FIAM (Faculdades Integradas Alcântara Machado), with her postgrad in economics and political journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University (PUC) of São Paulo. In 1998, she began her career in television as a producer and reporter on Boa Vontade TV of the LBV. She then had her first experience as a newscaster on RIT.
In 2002, Joyce went to Rede Record TV, where she served as a reporter and host of Fala Brasil (talk Brazil). Soon after, she presented a newscast for Record International. In 2005 she went to the SBT, hosting the morning edition of Jornal do SBT until March 2006, hosting the weather forecast of the defunct SBT São Paulo.
The journalist also hosted Aqui e Agora (Here and Now) in 2008, the Boletim de Ocorrências (Bulletin of Occurrences) program, in 2011. She covered SBT Folia, then the new version of SBT São Paulo. In 2012 she returned to SBT Manhã. In 2016, Joyce began to command the Primeiro Impacto (first impact) new television news of the channel. The journalist even covered the US elections at Jornal do SBT in November.
In 2017 she was transferred to SBT Noticias in a relay with five other hosts in the news programming of more than six hours of duration. That same year, after 12 years in the station the journalist left to touch her personal projects in cinema and the book Chica da Silva.
The beginning of 2018 marks the launch of her second book Deixa Enrolar: a história do cacho (Let It Roll: The Story of the Curl) along with Karina Hollo.
