Debra Dolan joined the WECT and Fox Wilmington news teams in 2007, after graduating from UNCW. She began her career at the station in the production department and quickly advanced to overseeing the digital content.
She is known in the newsroom as "Web Deb" – managing the content you see on WECT.com and FoxWilmington.com, on the WECT News App and on Social Media. Under her direction, the website has won several awards, including best website from the Radio and Television News Directors Association of the Carolinas.
When she's not behind a computer, Debra is in a different kind of studio – teaching dance at A Leap Above. She is an award winning choreographer with more than 14 years of teaching experience.
She was the coach of the Wilmington Hammerheads dance team for several years and was captain of the UNCW dance team her senior year. Look for her around town tapping her toes!
In her free time, Debra enjoys working out, going to the beach to relax and spending time with her friends and family. She likes to travel when she can and is always eager to learn and try new things.
