Season 9

Joyce Kinney is the new Co-anchorwoman of Quahog 5 news after Diane Simmons died and is Lois Griffin's former enemy and old High School classmate. Joyce was not very happy about Lois Griffin because in the high school times she wore a blindfold and was in the gym with her pants down and a hot dog in her mouth and everybody especially Lois laughed at her.

Season 10

Tricia Takanawa's name was mispronounced as "Tricia Nakahoma" by Joyce Kinney in "Grumpy Old Man" from Season 10.

Season 11

Joyce appears in the special opening of "Valentine's Day in Quahog" from Season 11.

In the episode "12 and a Half Angry Men" from Season 11, Joyce is seen leading the newscast alone in nightwear.

A disheveled Joyce presents the news story of Peter Griffin and the guy's occupation of The Drunken Clam in "Save the Clam" following her sister's wedding. She notes that she too could find a husband if she was willing to settle for a Persian.

Season 12

In the episode "Life Of Brian" from Season 12, among the many people present at the funeral of Brian Griffin, you see also Joyce Kinney who mourns dog's death.

Season 13

In the episode "The Simpsons Guy" from Season 13, Joyce leads a TV show called "The Flow", and we see Joyce also in the courthouse of Springfield. In this episode, she helps Peter to remedy a mistake: he had written a sexist comic, but Peter fails. However, at the end of the episode, Joyce and the residents of Quahog forgive Peter and call him a hero for defending their favorite beer, Pawtucket Patriot Ale.

Joyce also appears in the crowd in "Roasted Guy".

In the episode "Follow the Money" from Season 16, we discovered that Joyce and Lois have finally become friends since she is a member of Lois' Book Club.

She is voiced by Christine Lakin, who also voiced Marisa Chase and Pelessaria B'Sayle.

Relationship with the Griffin family

Because of the joke that Lois has done to her in high school Joyce was traumatized to the point of wanting revenge and reveal to everyone that Lois Griffin starred in a porn movie. When Lois was forgiven by Quahog, Joyce was not at all pleased, and she was still sitting there in front of her to boil with rage. However, between "And I'm Joyce Kinney" and "Follow the Money", Lois and Joyce made peace, becoming friends.

In the opening, singed by the Griffin family, also Joyce makes her appearance, where she dances with the other characters.

Joyce also came at Brian's funeral and she seemed really sad, this is an example of her human side even though she did not know him very well. However, this event will be altered by Stewie saving Brian from the car.

With Peter things go in a different way. At beginning the two are not very well, in fact she is aware of sexist cartoon that made Peter, but he, instead of apologizing, does nothing but say the usual nonsense, typical of the character. However, when Peter will defend the Pawtucket Patriot Ale beer, Joyce and all other citizens of Quahog will forgive him. At Peter's Roast, you seem laughing at jokes made by Peter's Friends, but it is just a game after all, however, Peter believes he is humiliated and ridiculed.
