Dalton native and ‘Inside Edition’ anchor Deborah Norville to have cancerous thyroid nodule removed

Long-time “Inside Edition” host and Dalton native Deborah Norville said on Monday that she’ll be undertaking surgery for a cancerous thyroid nodule.

"We live in a world of 'see something, say something,' and I'm really glad we do," she said in a video message to viewers today. "A long time ago, an Inside Edition viewer reached out to say she'd seen something on my neck. It was a lump."

It was non-cancerous at first.  She has tracked it ever since and a doctor recently said it had become cancerous and needs to be removed. Good news: she won’t need chemo or radiation. 

Norville, 60, has been with “Inside Edition” out of New York since 1995. 

She said she’ll be off air for an unspecified time and Diane McInerny will cover for her at the desk.
