Biography

Veteran journalist Deborah Norville has been anchor of Inside Edition since March 1995. Ratings jumped 15% the week the two-time Emmy winner joined the series, which is now the nation's top-rated syndicated newsmagazine.

A best-selling author, Ms. Norville's latest book is The Power of Respect: Benefit From the Most Forgotten Element of Success (Oct. 2009, Thomas Nelson) provides a timely explanation of the measurable increases in productivity, creativity, and other benefits that result from respectful behavior. The book follows her New York Times Best Seller, Thank You Power: Making the SCIENCE of Gratitude Work For YOU (Oct. 2007, Thomas Nelson). Thank You Power brought together for the first time the growing body of academic research proving the benefits of gratitude.

In 2009, Deborah Norville capitalized on her lifelong love of fiber arts with The Deborah Norville Collection, a line of fine yarns for hand knitting and crocheting, found in major craft stores around the country. Her companion book, Knit With Deborah Norville features a variety of classic patterns using yarns from her collection.

It is Ms. Norville's work in television that has made her a household name. As anchor of Inside Edition, she has covered a wide variety of stories and events. She broadcast from Washington DC hours after the terror attacks of September 11, was in Rome for the funeral of Pope John Paul II, anchored Inside Edition's coverage of the funeral of President Ronald Reagan and the inauguration of President Barack Obama, and is regularly on the red carpet for Hollywood's star-studded events including the Oscars and the Emmy Awards.

Deborah Norville made headlines for her week of groundbreaking reports--as an inmate--from a North Carolina penal institution known as the "toughest jail in America." The story won her two national awards for reporting excellence. She snagged the first national interview with Bethany Hamilton, the young surfer who lost her arm in a shark attack in Hawaii. She was on the scene of the American Airlines jet crash in Cali, Colombia, and interviewed Paula Jones for the first wide-ranging talk about the lawsuit against then-President Bill Clinton. On a lighter note, she wrote and recorded a dance song and music video, with Inside Edition's cameras documenting the process.

Ms. Norville's reporting career began while still a student at the University of Georgia. As a reporter for WAGA-TV in Atlanta, she conducted a live interview with then-President Jimmy Carter. After graduating summa cum laude (4.0), First Honor Graduate from UGA, she was named weekend anchor at WAGA-TV. In 1982, she joined WMAQ-TV in Chicago as reporter and then later anchor. In 1987, she joined NBC News as anchor of NBC News at Sunrise. Ratings jumped 40% her first three months in that position. She was later named news anchor and then co-host of NBC's Today program, a position she held until the birth of her first child in 1991.

Ms. Norville resumed her broadcasting career with the Deborah Norville Show, heard on more than 200 ABC Radio Network stations. She joined CBS News in 1993 as a correspondent and later anchor for such programs as Street Stories, 48 Hours, and CBS Evening News. She also hosted Deborah Norville Tonight on MSNBC.

Deborah Norville is active in a number of charities. She has been National Celebrity Spokesperson for the Mother's March of Dimes, a director for Girl Scout Council of Greater New York, Broadcasters Foundation, and the Women's Committee of the Central Park, and on the Steering Committee for the Rita Hayworth (Alzheimer's) Gala. A sought-after lecturer, she speaks with candor and humor about dealing with life's curves and juggling a career and motherhood.
