BIO

Jami Floyd is an award-winning journalist and national television personality.

She is the former anchor of Court TV's Jami Floyd: Best Defense, a daily live show that tackled the day's front-page legal stories. She has also served as a network correspondent and investigative reporter at various outlets, most notably ABC News, and has been awarded the Gracie, Telly, Maggie, and two Cine-Golden Eagle Awards for journalism.

Jami has anchored the most significant breaking news stories of the 21st Century, including the trial and execution of Saddam Hussein, the Enron verdicts, and the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui. She covered the terrorist attacks from Ground Zero on September 11, 2001 and the Oklahoma City Bombing prior to that. Jami was in Tallahassee, Florida for the extended presidential recount of 2000, more commonly known as Bush v. Gore.

Jami has interviewed countless players on the American landscape, everyone from Hillary Clinton to Hilary Swank, Don Cheadle to Donald Trump, Henry Kissinger to Henry Louis Gates, Jr. She was cited by the New York Times for her hard-hitting interview of Governor Rod Blagojevich on the eve of his impeachment. But Jami considers Myrlie Evers-Williams, widow of the slain civil rights leader Medgar Evers, her most inspirational interview.

Before journalism, Jami worked as a White House Fellow in the Clinton Administration, served as a teaching fellow at Stanford Law School while she pursued a master's degree and worked as a public defender in San Francisco.

Jami, her husband, two children, dog and two cats all live together in a New York City apartment. Go figure.
