Mini Bio (1)

Deborah Norville is a two-time national Emmy winner and mother of three (sons Niki and Kyle, and daughter Mikaela), who currently anchors the nationally syndicated show, Inside Edition (1988). She previously worked as a correspondent for Street Stories (1992), 48 Hours (1988), and served as co-anchor for America Tonight (1994) and Today (1952). At Today (1952), Norville, a former Georgia beauty queen, replaced longtime co-host Jane Pauley, creating a storm of controversy and a slew of unflattering press clips on the merits of brains vs beauty and the horrors of ageism at TV news divisions. Her tumultuous stay at NBC led her to write the book, "Back on Track: How to Straighten Out Your Life When it Throws You a Curve" (Simon & Schuster, 1997). She has also written two children's books, "I Don't Want to Sleep Tonight" (Golden Books, 1999) and "I Can Fly" (Golden Books, 2001). She is a First Honor Graduate, Summa Cum Laude, of the University of Georgia.
