Derick Waller - NBC29 WVIR Charlottesville, VA News, Sports and Weather

Derick Waller

Derick Waller joined the NBC 29 news team in August, 2010.  Prior to this, Derick graduated with degrees in both broadcast journalism and political science from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond.  While at VCU he interned at WTVR-TV and reported for his college news program, VCU Insight.

Being a huge political junkie, he is grateful to have been born and raised in Richmond, but is excited to see what Charlottesville has to offer.  He is especially thrilled about visiting all the local vineyards.

When he is not digging for a good story, Derick loves reading up on German cars, checking out new restaurants, and hitting the gym, usually after checking out those aforementioned restaurants.
