Deborah Duncan
When you look at how Deborah Duncan grew up, it's no surprise that she ended up in the communication business.Her early years were spent in Taiwan and Japan."Because my dad was in the military, we were constantly moving.I went to five different elementary schools.I tried to find out everything I could about my "new friends" the first week I was there."That's how Deborah honed her interviewing skills.
Deborah finished grade school in San Antonio where her father retired.After graduating from high school, Deborah didn't want to leave Texas, so she enrolled at UT in Austin.She got her degree in radio/TV/film.Deborah got her start in the news business at an Austin radio station where she was a student intern."When they sent me out to get one story, I'd bring back six more just in case the original one wasn't good enough.I did the extra work out of fear.They thought I was just a hard worker and that's why they offered me a job."
After a couple of years in radio, Deborah made the switch to television as a reporter at the CBS station in Austin.
She later became an anchor at the ABC station.During that time, a story that Deborah had covered too often, touched home.A drunk driver killed her brother.
Deborah later moved to Dallas where she started a talk show called "Good Morning Texas" at WFAA-TV, the sister station of KHOU-TV."At first, talk shows didn't interest me.But it was nice to get a chance to expand on stories that touched our lives and, at the same time, explore the lighter side of life."Deborah and her co-host were eventually asked to anchor the morning news.
After three years, Deborah moved to New York City to co-host a talk show for Lifetime Television called "Our Home."While doing the show, Deborah suffered a life-threatening brain aneurysm.
Deborah loved New York City, but "my heart was still in Texas."When ABC executives approached Deborah about down a talk show for possible national syndication, they wanted her to do the show out of New York or Los Angeles.
