Title: Sports Anchor/Reporter

Cameron Derby grew up watching NewsWatch12 as a child, and joined the NewsWatch12 Team in December of 2018.

Cameron’s passion for sports writing and storytelling began when he was in the 9th grade, while attending South Medford High School. After deciding that he was not cut out to be a division 1 athlete, he still had a passion for the game.

He turned his attention to earning a degree in Journalism and Communication at the University of Oregon. While he was in Eugene, he covered Oregon Football, basketball, and volleyball for KWVA Eugene 88.1fm.

Towards the end of his degree, Cameron decided to pursue a job at NewsWatch12. He embarked on an internship that re-introduced him to his love for his hometown.

At heart, Cameron is a Seattle Seahawks, Oregon Ducks, and Boston Celtics fan. However, he believes his enjoyment for sports in general always comes first.

Just like the classic movie, “The Sandlot” he hopes the game never ends.
