Donna Deegan Will Leave WLTV-WJXX to Focus on Breast Cancer Awareness

Donna Deegan, who has been an anchor at WLTV-WJXX in Jacksonville since 1988, has announced that she will leave the television business at the end of August.

Deegan, a three-time breast cancer survivor, said she will devote her time to philanthropic organizations dedicated to finding a cure for the disease. She is the founder and president of The Donna Foundation, which offers financial assistance to breast cancer patients.

“I’ve said all along we will end breast cancer right here in Jacksonville, and I believe that is true,” she said on last night’s newscast. “I feel incredibly blessed to be in good health and the time is right to pay that forward by completely immersing myself in the good work ahead.”
