DEBRA ALFARONE TV journalist PIX 11 News, New York City @dalfarone Debra Alfarone is an award-winning, Emmy-nominated TV journalist, currently working at PIX 11 News in New York City, covering breaking news, crime, and human interest stories. Debra’s reporting career has taken her to several stations throughout the Northeast, including WVIT-TV, the NBC O&O in Hartford, CT, but before that, she worked on Wall Street. Debra knows first-hand how to successfully transition from one career path to another, using persistence, reciprocity, being specific and using out-of-the-box thinking. For example, for her first major reporting job, Debra sleuthed around to find out when the hiring manager was most likely to be at his desk. When she called and he didn’t immediately find the reel she had mailed to him, she said, “I could have a new one on your desk in an hour, are you free at 2pm?” She got the job. Debra also believes strongly in inventing her own path, creating “Alt Side” – a segment where she interviews notable New Yorkers in her car during alternate-side-of-the-street-parking.
