Out & About
DeAnn Stephens was born and raised in Lexington, Kentucky. A graduate of Lafayette High School, and Eastern Kentucky University where she majored in Broadcasting. Stephens started her broadcasting career in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky where she was a general assignment reporter and Anchor at WYMT T.V. After a couple of years there, she landed a position at WKYT T.V., the CBS affiliate in Lexington, where she started as a morning reporter. Quickly, Stephens moved into the anchor chair, and at some point, ended up anchoring every newscast WKYT put on the air.
After 13 years in television, Stephens decided it was time for a change. She joined 98.1 The Bull in the Spring of 2008 as Host of the Morning Show! DeAnn and her co-host, Officer Don, won the coveted CMA 'Broadcast Personality of the Year' award in 2017! They've also been nominated twice more for this award by the Country Music Association!
