With 27 years of experience in TV and broadcast and 16 years with the media and Christian-based network, Total Living Network, Debra Fraser was the perfect choice to replace recently-retired network president and chief executive officer Jerry Rose. She was previously the affiliate relations director and then the general manager of the network, before Rose named her as his replacement.
Ms. Fraser has been in TV, broadcasting, producing and sales throughout her career. Originally, she was pursuing a business and working as a paralegal. She then joined a network in 1982 and was soon promoted to station manager, and she has been in broadcast and media ever since. Through her work with Total Living Network, she is able to give a voice to those who are often not heard or ignored—local and common people, the homeless, victims of human trafficking and the like.
As a woman in today’s world, Ms. Fraser attributes her many years of success with the network to her diverse voice, resources, finances, motivation, and her organizational skills. She is extremely proud of the work she has done to bring awareness of different cultures to the network’s viewers, as well as the diversity of its programs. In addition to her dedication to her profession, she is also inspired by the people who watch her show and recognize her, and the prospect that her work has the potential to save and change lives.
Thanks to Ms. Fraser’s dedication to the network, Total Living Network has won the California Station Award five times, as well as a California and Chicago Emmy Awards. Looking to the future of her career and Total Living Network, she hopes to eventually broadcast on every media platform. Currently, they are broadcasting on cable, Amazon, Fire TV, Roku and other popular platforms.
Looking forward, Ms. Fraser wants to be remembered as a good mother, a good wife and a good friend. She also wants to be known as someone who will use every skill and talent she has to help another human. When she is not working, she enjoys traveling, playing volleyball and watching sports.
