The KGGF family is feeling heart-broken. Former News Director Debra Woodall passed away on Friday. Deb, who started at KGGF in May of 2016, was a Southeast Kansas native and graduate of Caney Valley High School. She was an award winning news reporter and has been honored by the Kansas Association of Broadcasters, Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters, Kansas Associated Press, and the RTNDA. She was a National Edward R. Murrow Award Winner for Best Newscast. Deb was very passionate about the news industry and loved to tell a story. She was mentor and a friend to all of us here at KGGF and will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her husband Marty and their family including Deb's beloved dog Buster Pup.
Her funeral services will be this Wednesday at 1:00pm at Conerstone Church in Caney. Donations can be made in Deb's name for a Broadcasting/Communication Scholarship at CCC. David W Barnes Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
