Debbie Denmon started in the crazy world of television news in 1992. She graduated from UNT in Denton with B.A. degree in Journalism in 1991, from there she worked on her masters for a year and then got her feet wet behind the scenes at KXAS-TV as an assistant on the assignment desk.
Denmon's first reporter gig was in Colorado Springs, CO and then it was on to Tulsa, OK, Indianapolis, IN, and finally – returned home to Texas at WFAA-TV in 2000.
She started at Channel 8 as a morning and noon anchor; Good Morning Texas, a lifestyle magazine format, landed in her lap as well. She anchored four hours of television a day for several years. There were times her day started at 3 am. She said "it was nuts but great fun."
She also did the evening news on weekends and reported out in the field several days a week at WFAA. It was an interesting ride that lasted for 12 years.
Denmon is a "mama and daddy's girl" who was born and raised in Denton. She is the third daughter and has one baby brother. Well, he is 6'7, so he's not so small.
She said she has a tall family, so much so her family reunions look as if they own a NBA team.
Denmon is 6'2, with heels. She loves chocolate almond ice cream and you may see her in Braum's occasionally! "I'm a recovering shopaholic. Actually, I need a pill to keep me out of the shops and offline! I'm a sucker for a sale. I know my debit card numbers, all 16 by heart, but I couldn't tell you my driver's license number. I'm working on those priorities.:)"
Denmon has a wonderful boyfriend and says marriage is in the cards. She said she hopes KTXD BROADCASTS THE WEDDING with a laugh and promises not to turn into Star Jones.
She has one dog who she really thinks is human. His name is Kirby, nickname Suga Buga Bear. He talks and she is currently looking for an agent.
She is a big sports fan who loves the Dallas Mavericks and Dallas Cowboys. "I also love a new challenge. Taking the job as Communications Dir. for Dallas Co. DA's office is right up my ally. I am now on the other side of the microphone. My boss, Craig Watkins, is the first black district attorney in the history of Texas. He's made history by the number of exonerations that have occurred under his leadership! Watkins was unafraid to allow DNA testing to occur, which freed wrongly convicted men. I respect those who make courageous decisions. Life is good for me on the personal and professional front."
