On the CJ and Debbie Ray in the Morning show today, Debbie Ray announced her plans for retirement.

Or, "semi-retirement", as she put it.

Debbie emotionally spoke of how much fun she and CJ had over the past 25 years, but also said that sleeping past 3 am is looking pretty good to her.

The final on-air promotion which Debbie Ray will be officially involved in is  "Shoeboxes for Seniors". Debbie made a plea to Acadiana, saying that donating to that event would be "the greatest favor" that could be done for her.

We'll miss you, Debbie Ray. Thank you for giving so much to so many.
