Debbie Thrower interviewing a collector on 'Collector's Lot'

Debbie Thrower (born 17 November 1957) is a British television presenter who anchored for ITV Meridian's flagship news programme (the Southern edition of) Meridian Tonight from its inception in 1993 to 2009. She was educated at Edgehill College, formerly a girls' independent school in Bideford, Devon.

Thrower's TV credits include newscasting for the BBC, BBC South Today and Songs of Praise. She and colleague Fred Dinenage were presenters of Meridian Tonight (South) when it first aired in 1993. In addition, she was the first person seen after the changeover from TVS to Meridian, shortly after the stroke of midnight on New Years Day 1993, covering the celebrations at Winchester Cathedral, which was celebrating its 900th anniversary. More recently, Debbie was the final presenter for Channel 4s popular antiques programme Collectors Lot, which aired on weekday afternoons, gaining two million viewers a day.

She also had a BBC Radio 2 afternoon show between 1995 and 1997 replacing long-time presenter Gloria Hunniford.

On 13 January 2009, Thrower confirmed in an interview with The News in Portsmouth that she was leaving ITV Meridian to concentrate on freelance work and her voluntary lay ministry as a Church of England reader.[1] Her final show as presenter of Meridian Tonight (South) was on 6 February 2009.

In November 2009 she was appointed Simeon Chaplain in Alton, Hampshire.
