Imagine what it would be like if:
- You feel comfortable, are more conversational, and have straight-up swagger on-air.
- You ace that live shot every time, drop your mic, and collect compliments and high fives.
- You have a killer reel that scores you interviews in your dream market so you can be closer to friends and family.
- You have a roadmap to asking better questions, writing more “big market,” and sharpening your on-air look.
- You have a Fairy-News-Mother to help you craft your reel, second by second, so you have the best shot at catching News Directors' eyes and getting the interview.*
This Digital Course is designed to help you transform how you feel on-air after just the first lesson.

Hey, I’m Debra.
I was a high school dropout, with no connections in TV news. Through sheer hustle, positivity and persistence, I worked my way up to become a Network TV Reporter for CBS stations across the country.
I’ll never forget how scared I was the first time I was on camera, doing a live shot in a small TV market, complete with the deer-in-headlights look.
The one thing I’ve learned in my dozen years as a journalist is that EVERYBODY has a story. And everybody’s story DESERVES to be told.
As an insider, I learned firsthand what producers, bookers and journalists are looking for. And, they’re looking for you! They need good stories.
I’m here to help you unlock the power in your story. I know firsthand how easy it is to doubt your power. Trust me, if this high school dropout can learn how to conquer her self-doubt and win an Edward R Murrow award, I can show you how to overcome any limiting beliefs that may be holding YOU back.
“Since connecting with Debra, I’ve grown both professionally and personally. She has used her expertise to coach, critique and mentor me within the last year. I credit her advice for helping me make a leap to a much larger market in the last few months. Debra is down to earth, honest and truly understands what is required for TV journalists to succeed in this business.”

"Wow, this course is everything I wish I had when I first started in journalism! The way Debra breaks everything down so it’s easy to remember and apply is fantastic. It’s like having a mentor who you don’t feel like you’re bothering.
I can honestly say I’ve never seen a course like this one. There are NOT many things that are tailored to journalists that are affordable and ACTUALLY HELPFUL. This course is both!! I’ve been to so many conferences and spent so much money on books but nothing comes close to the practical knowledge I got out of this course. WORTH EVERY PENNY!
"Debra helped me connect with the camera in a way I didn’t realize I could.
She has become the answer to my problems, the challenge I need to keep growing and the older sister I never had. I couldn’t be prouder of the work we accomplished to jump from market 117 to 48...I never would have been able to do it without her."
