Deborah Norville is a two-time Emmy-award-winning broadcast journalist and television show host, a devoted wife and mother of three, an author of four books, a tireless charitable worker, and an avid seamstress, but she can also add home decorator to her list of accomplishments.
Deborah’s days are spent in a New York City television studio where she recently celebrated her 12-year anniversary as anchor of the top-rated syndicated newsmagazine show Inside Edition. She has covered such diverse stories as a day in the life of a New Jersey tollbooth worker and the funeral of former President Ronald Reagan. She garnered national attention—and two broadcasting awards—when she spent a week as an inmate at a North Carolina penal institution known as the “toughest jail in America.” Fans will remember her as a former cohost of NBC’s Today show and as a reporter for CBS News.
