The day for holiday cheer and jolly time with friends and family has arrived.

Christmas Day is a day to be spent with the ones you love most — but just like every other day, news does not take a day off.

KSAT will air the Nightbeat at 10 p.m. on Christmas Day, and anchors Japhanie Gray and Deven Clarke will be there with you to celebrate the end of the night.

Here are some quirky things to know about the two anchors and reporters, from Japhanie’s favorite desserts to that one time Deven endured an awkward moment on-air.

Where did you get your start in broadcast?

Japhanie: I got my start in Jonesboro, Arkansas as an Arkansas State University sophomore in 2012 working for the Jonesboro Radio Group stations (107.5 The Party Station, Mix 106.3, 100.5 The Eagle Rocks and 104.9 The Fox).

While I was on the air there as a DJ, I worked behind the scenes in production for the morning news at KAIT Region 8 News until I became a reporter.
