Longtime KEYT television news anchor Debby Davison passed away Tuesday evening after a long battle with breast cancer.
Within days of joining the station in 1990, Davison established a dependable reputation as she and co-anchor King Harris covered the Painted Cave Fire from the instant it broke out, a few minutes into their 6 pm broadcast. “She was able to guide the city through the disaster with a strong and calming voice,” remembers KEYT Senior Reporter John Palminteri. “I think the audience trusted her right away, which is very important in television news.”
After retiring from the station in 2006, Davison became prominent in community activism and charity events, working with various nonprofits. She is survived by her husband and two sons.
