Joy Purdy WPTV
Purdy is back as the anchor of The Local Station… once more. She returned to News4Jax to co-anchor the 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. newscasts with Tarik Minor and the 11 p.m. evening newscasts with Kent Justice after taking a few years off to spend time with her two young children. Purdy grew up outside of Trenton, New Jersey, where her parents encouraged her curiosity by having her watch and deliver the morning weather report from the Today Show as they prepared for work each day.
Purdy joined public television’s New Jersey Network News, producing and delivering news updates on the radio, after an apprenticeship at Philadelphia’s “Channel 6 Action News.”Purdy quickly rose through the ranks of NJN’s TV news staff, contributing to coverage of major events such as the inauguration and new administration of New Jersey’s first female governor, as well as interviews with notable figures such as the late civil rights leader Coretta Scott King, then-US Attorney General Janet Reno, and then-tennis superstar Pete Sampras.
Purdy’s excellent journalistic reputation and contagious energy prompted her to work for CBS-affiliate WJXT in Jacksonville, Florida from 1995 to 2000 as a Weekend News Anchor and “Police Beat” Reporter. Joy covered several major events on the First Coast for five years, including the $20 million Loomis Fargo robbery, Jacksonville’s first black sheriff, and the Jaguars’ historic first NFL season.
She also covered the historic 2000 presidential election from downtown Miami, when ‘hanging chads’ would be plastered to her shoes at the end of each day. Joy quips, “I could kick myself for not grabbing a bunch and selling them on eBay.”Purdy departed WTLV in early 2013 to spend time with her young children after giving birth to their second child. She was ready to return to work at the conclusion of the summer and was delighted to return to her first family in Jacksonville, WJXT.
