With more than two decades of broadcast journalism experience, Deborah Norville has been anchor of the nation's top-rated syndicated news magazine "Inside Edition" since 1995. Leading the series to new strength and respect, the program's ratings jumped 15% the week she joined the series, and it is now the nation's top-rated syndicated newsmagazine.

Taking on numerous on-location assignments, Norville went to Hawaii for the first national interview with Bethany Hamilton, the young surfer who lost her arm in a shark attack. 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. She made national headlines by spending - and reporting on - five days as an inmate in a North Carolina penal institution known as the "toughest jail in America." The story won Norville two national awards for reporting excellence. On a much lighter note, she also took viewers inside the recording industry by re-inventing herself as a rock diva for a day - recording a song, shooting a video, and tackling a CD cover glamour shoot. In 2001, following the tragic events of September 11, Norville flew with the 177th Fighter Wing of the New Jersey Air National Guard as they patrolled New York City airspace. She also gathered victims of anthrax poisoning and those who lost loved ones at the World Trade Center to talk about life after September 11.

A two-time Emmy Award-winner, Norville joined "Inside Edition" from CBS News, where she anchored "America Tonight" and reported for "48 Hours," "Street Stories" and "CBS Evening News." Prior to working at CBS, she hosted the nationally syndicated "Deborah Norville Radio Show," heard on more than 200 stations via the ABC Radio network. At NBC, she served as news anchor and, later, co-host of NBC'S "Today" show, positions that followed her tenure as anchor of "NBC News At Sunrise."

Norville, while still a college student, began her career as a reporter and, later, weekend anchor for WAGA-TV in Atlanta. Subsequently, she worked for WMAQ-TV, the NBC-owned station in Chicago, where she served as a reporter and, later, main anchor.

Beyond broadcast journalism, Norville is also an author. Her first book, Back On Track: How To Straighten Out Your Life When It Throws You A Curve, drew upon her experiences at NBC's "Today" show to offer a plan for renewal and redirection for women everywhere. I Don't Want To Sleep Tonight offers children (and their parents) suggestions to keep scary dreams away at night. The highly-acclaimed book has been one of Golden Books' strongest sellers. I Can Fly followed, helping kids find their own talents and increase their self-esteem.

Norville is active in a number of charities. She is the 2001 and 2002 National Celebrity Spokesperson for the Mothers March of Dimes. She sits on the Board of Directors for the Greater New York City Council of Girl Scouts, where she allocated the proceeds from her first children's book; the Broadcasters Foundation, which provides emergency funding to broadcasters in need; and the Women's Committee of the Central Park Conservancy. She also serves on the Steering Committee for the Alzheimer's Association's Rita Hayworth Gala, raising $1.5 million in a single night the year she chaired their annual event.

The recipient of a number of awards, Norville has been named "Best in the Business" by the Washington Journalism Review, "Mother of the Year" by the National Mother's Day Committee, and "Person of the Year" by the Rita Hayworth Gala. She is also the recipient of two national Emmys, AWRT's Gracie Award, a local Emmy and a Silver Plaque from the Chicago Film Festival.

A sought-after lecturer, Norville speaks with candor and humor about dealing with life's curves and juggling a career and motherhood.
