Derick Waller
Derick Waller is a reporter for Eyewitness News This Morning. Derick's journey to WABC took him to TV stations in Cleveland, OH, Raleigh, NC and Charlottesville, VA, which is where he got his start.

While in the Southeast and the Midwest, he covered some of the biggest stories of the past decade, including two presidential campaigns in three different swing states.

Derick was born and raised in Richmond, VA, but he's no stranger to New York City. His father lives in Queens, where Derick spent a significant amount of time growing up.

Derick's a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University with degrees in journalism and political science. In his spare time, he loves exploring food and culture right here in New York City and around the world.

He's thrilled to call NYC home.
