Deborah Ferguson Celebrates 25 Years at NBC 5

Thursday marked NBC 5 morning anchor Deborah Ferguson's 25th anniversary with the station.

TODAY Show co-anchor Savannah Guthrie wishes NBC 5 morning anchor Deborah Ferguson a happy 25th anniversary at the station.

As a student at Texas Christian University, Deborah interned at NBC 5. She then joined the station in 1991 after some time at WBAP as a reporter and anchor.

"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."

It’s the ultimate Throwback Thursday: Look back at some moments during Deborah Ferguson’s first 25 years at NBC 5.

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.
