Hey There!

I'm Deborah Clay — an Australian Journalist and Presenter, News Director, Commentator and Charity Ambassador.

AS THE NATIONAL NEWS DIRECTOR FOR AUSTRALIAN RADIO NETWORK, I OVERSEE NEWS FOR TEN RADIO STATIONS AND PRESENT DRIVE NEWS FOR THE TOP RATING SYDNEY STATIONS, WSFM AND KIIS.

Journalism is my passion; whether I am breaking news and presenting from the studio or reporting from the field - I enjoy sharing unique stories which resonate with and excite our listeners.

MY ROLE IS DIVERSE AND NO TWO DAYS ARE THE SAME.

As well as my work at ARN I regularly appear as a commentator on Channel 7's Sunrise. I have also contributed to ABC's The Drum, Weekend Sunrise and The Morning Show.


 

After reporting from the scene for numerous breaking news stories and events, I have received the Brian White Memorial Award for Radio Journalism at the Australian Commercial Radio Awards and the Journalist/Producer award at the 2018 Women in Media Awards.
