Deborah is the Emmy Nominated host and producer of the hit arts and entertainment talk show, Star City Buzz.
The weekly, half-hour show highlights the latest concerts, productions, restaurants, arts exhibits and movies. You can get the buzz Wednesdays at 6:30 PM on 10/11 Central Nebraska (KSNB) and Saturdays at 7:30 AM on 10/11 News.
“I love my job for a few reasons. I get to work with amazing people, serve a wonderful community and I have a really cool gig,” Deb said!
Originally from Atlanta, GA (Go Bulldogs!), Deborah moved to the Husker State in 2010. She admits, the winter’s can get pretty cold, but the temperatures pale in comparison to the warmth of Nebraskans.
The award-winning journalist has worked in Tennessee, Alabama, Florida, North Carolina and Georgia.
She is a member of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) and the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ).
In her spare time, the newlywed loves to hang out with her husband, church family and friends. Tennis and bike-riding have also become her new hobbies. As far as that novel that she’s been working on for years? Still not done yet. Good things take time - right ?
On December 31, 2011, her older brother, Marcus Ryan, passed away. One of the last conversations Deb had with Marc, centered around the entertainment scene and her soon-to-debut show. Marcus was a huge cheerleader for his family – and constantly fed Deb ideas on things she could do. With that said, each episode of Star City Buzz is dedicated to the memory of her brother.
If you have any questions, ideas or would like to simply chit-chat – Deb is all for new friendships. You can email her at Deborah.email@example.com, friend her on Facebook or follow her on twitter.
