Derrol Nail joined the Fox 35 news team as a Reporter in November of 2009. His reports air weekdays at 10pm on Fox 35.
Derrol was born in Orlando and raised on the Space Coast, where all of his immediate family still reside. His father retired after a 31 year career as a NASA engineer, and his mother is a former Vice Mayor of Cocoa Beach.
He has spent most of his career covering news in the Sunshine State. After graduating from Cocoa Beach High School, he obtained his bachelor's degree from the University of Florida. Since that time, he has worked in newsrooms throughout Florida; from the panhandle to south Florida, and places in between. Before returning home to Central Florida, he spent four years covering news in California.
His hobbies include surfing, snowboarding, and any sport with a ball. He loves spending time with his family, and he has a dog that loves being outdoors as much as he does.
Derrol covers Orange and Volusia counties, but most of the time he can be found in Brevard County. Please contact Derrol if you have a story you believe our viewing audience would like to know about.
