This past Friday morning, December 7, 2018, Debbie Ray said goodbye to after over 40 years of being an Acadiana broadcaster.  The night before her big sendoff, a private surprise retirement party was held in her honor.

A classy lady, a consummate professional and my sweetheart of a friend said farewell to the KTDY audience on 99.9 KTDY's CJ and Debbie Ray Morning Show after 22 years as co-host.  Her sendoff was epic.

The night before Debbie Ray said goodbye on the radio, she was treated to a much deserved surprise retirement party in Tsunami's Gallery downtown Lafayette.  The highlight of the night was a video, put together by Townsquare videographer Sam Stokes, which consisted of over 30 minutes of farewell wishes from friends, clients and listeners.  Until now, it has not been seen by the general public.

Please enjoy this salute to a very very special lady.
