Mayor Menino Appoints Dot Joyce as Press Secretary
Mayor Thomas M. Menino today announced his appointment of Dot Joyce, segment producer for the FOX Morning Show, as his press secretary.
"Dot's experience in broadcast journalism and her insight into the news industry will be a terrific asset to my administration," Mayor Menino said. "I look forward to working closely with her as we continue to move Boston forward."
Joyce has been with FOX News for almost eight years and has developed a strong network of contacts with local news makers and their staff. As a producer and assignment editor for FOX News, Joyce has organized and managed crew assignments for major news events such as the political campaigns and elections of 2000 and 2004 as well as the Patriots Superbowl Victory parade and rally. She was also the Field Producer for all major news events including FOX's live coverage of the 2004 World Series in St. Louis. Before joining FOX, Joyce was a freelance assignment editor with WLVI 56 and had interned with Congressman Martin Meehan in Washington, D.C.
"I've always respected the mayor," Joyce said. "I don't think the city has ever looked better or felt better, and I look forward to helping him continue that success."
Joyce is an Emerson College graduate, having earned a Bachelor of Science in Communication, Management & Public Policy with a Concentration in Broadcast Journalism. She also received a certificate from The Fund for American Studies Institute on Political Journalism at Georgetown University.
Joyce begins her new position on November 13th.
