Gilberto da Silva (Debre)

As a boy, his friends said that he had a 'voice of thunder', but he never imagined that this could become a profession. So much so that until the age of 26 he worked as a designer of metallic structures and went on to study administration with a specialization in Marketing.

In 1987, at the suggestion of a friend, he took a radio broadcaster course at Senac and ended up falling in love with the craft.

Two years later, he was already on Energia 97 FM, in Santo André, and then he went to Diário AM 1300, where he said he acquired his real learning as a communicator: in addition to presenting the program, he was a journalist and recorded calls and commercials. It was at this time that he earned the nickname “Debrê”, which was definitely incorporated into his professional name.

In 2007 he went to Canal Mundo (which later split into A&E, The History Channel and The Biography Channel).

It was the voice of the calls for The History Channel and Discovery.

Professional recognized for his special talent, he recorded many successful commercials.
