"It is great to be living and working in a state I am proud to call home." Deana Silk is a true Oklahoma girl! Born and raised in Northwest Oklahoma, she calls Alva home and loves to go back and see friends and family as much as possible.
Deana joined the 2NEWS Team as a general assignment reporter in January 2005. In 2007, she joined Meteorologist George Flickinger as the anchor of Green Country's only weekend morning show, 2NEWS Weekend Mornings.
In July 2011, Deana moved from weekend mornings to the weekday mornings. You can now catch her every day from 5 a.m. 7a.m. with Justin Wilfon and Meteorologist George Flickinger; and middays from 11 a.m. to noon.
"I love getting my day started early and being one of the first to inform our viewers what happened while they were sound asleep... coffee is always first on my to do list though!"
Deana graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a degree in journalism. She's a die-hard Sooner fan and you're bound to see her at a football game or two. Deana got her start at OU as a reporter/anchor for the campus news.
While in college she worked as a production assistant at KOKH FOX 25 news in Oklahoma City. But it was an internship at KFOR in Oklahoma City that sealed the deal for Deana's future.
Before coming to Channel 2, she worked in Lawton, Okla. as a general assignment reporter.
"I will never forget the emotion you feel when you watch soldiers come home from war…reuniting with family for the first time."
Deana and her husband are now happy to call Tulsa home. Taking advantage of the many lakes in the area is favorite pastime of hers. You may also catch Deana around town shopping or trying out different restaurants with her husband.
"I love to hear from my viewers, so if you have any restaurant or shopping suggestions don't hesitate to contact me!"
