Debbie Courson Smith

Debbie began her radio career in Weiser, Idaho, somewhere in the ’80s. She took her big hair and suitcase to Boise and co-hosted top-rated CHR and news-talk morning shows through the early 2000s. Then, life happened and she worked from home as a managing editor and producer for national and regional news networks, until her daughter became a teen and didn’t need her anymore. Hello, 94.9 FM, the River!

Debbie is a Boise State University grad (English/Communication), Advanced Master Gardener, fairy garden coach, certified monarch butterfly tagger, and co-owner of Ugly Gold Couch Pinball Clubhouse in Garden City. She and her husband Dwayne Smith are the founders of Treasure Valley Pinball, hosting pinball tournaments each month – keeping the ‘70s and ‘80s alive!
