The latest news from around North Texas.
"I got lucky enough to decide early on what I wanted to do. I wanted to be a reporter," she said. "I knew that in elementary school."
Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price declared Feb. 18 to be Deborah Ferguson Day in the city.
"When my family planted roots in Fort Worth, I had no idea this community would embrace me the way it has," she said.
State Rep. Charlie Geren and Deborah's husband, WBAP sports anchor Steve Lamb, also joined her at the NBC 5 studio to celebrate.
