At just 13 years of age, Deidra Shores is well on her way as a kid reporter! This past November, the Memphis, Tennessee native was chosen as the winner of the Today’s Show Kid Reporter contest. Deidra beat out more than 40,000 other kid contestants for the job with her winning video titled, “Where in the World is Matt Lauer?.” After winning, Deidra was off for her first official assignment which included a report on board the Carnival Cruise Lines’ newest ship — “Carnival Dream.” Deidra talked to crew members and learned all about working on cruise ships. See a video of this first assignment underneath.
Deidra dreams of one day interviewing Tyler Perry who she says is funny but serious about his work. With a spunky personality and a positive attitude, Deidra is on the right track and is definitely one to watch!
