About our Hot Pink Party 2018 Host and Emcee
When Deidra Dukes is not reporting the big story from the field, you can watch her anchor the weekend editions of FOX 5 News at 6, 10 and 11.
Deidra got her first big break in television as an anchor-reporter in Fresno and Redding, after earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Information and Communication Studies at California State University, Chico.
From the sunny West Coast, she headed north to do general assignment reporting at Pittsburgh’s WPXI-TV. Three years later, Atlanta viewers first saw Deidra reporting for cross-town rival WSB-TV. She made the leap to FOX 5 News in 2005.
Deidra believes that to whom much is given much is required, and enjoys giving back in her free time.
Since making the move to Atlanta, Deidra has involved herself in a number of community programs, working closely with groups like Junior League of Atlanta, the Atlanta Association of Black Journalists, and as an adviser to the American Red Cross Minority Recruitment Program.
Deidra is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Incorporated, East Point/College Park Alumnae Chapter.
She currently serves on the board of the Center for Black Women’s Wellness and is a member of Zion Hill Baptist Church in Atlanta.
