Deborah Knight

Charles Sturt University graduate and accomplished journalist, Deborah Knight began her career in media at the 2WG radio station in Wagga Wagga and has more than 15 years of experience in the industry. Radio was Deborah’s first love, and after several years spent fine-tuning her skills, and keen for a new challenge, she took up an offer from Mix 106.5 in Sydney.

From there Deborah accepted an excellent opportunity to join state broadcaster the ABC, where she further secured a reputation as a serious and noteworthy journalist within the industry. Her ability to swiftly grasp new subject matter was quickly noticed and the national broadcaster utilised her talents across a variety of roles from rural reporting to Triple J, followed by the prestigious AM and breakfast program on Radio National. From radio to television Deborah’s first role as a presenter/reporter was with the much-loved ABC TV show Landline.
