ABC: Deborah accepted a position with the ABC where she further secured a reputation as a serious journalist within the industry. Her ability to quickly grasp new subject matter was quickly noticed and the national broadcaster utilised her talents across a variety of roles from rural reporting to Triple J, followed by the prestigious AM and breakfast program on Radio National.
Politics: From radio to television Deborah’s first role as a presenter and reporter was with the much-loved ABC TV show Landline. Deborah’s work, specifically interviewing the Prime Minister, caught the eye of TEN political editor Paul Bongiorno which in turn set the wheels in motion for a move to commercial television.
Ten: From the ABC, Deborah joined Network Ten in the Canberra Press Gallery covering two Federal elections and regularly presenting Meet the Press and the station’s network news before taking the leap overseas.
