Derek Forrest Career
Forrest grew up in Brooklyn, New York, but has had the chance to see many different places. After ESPN, he spent years in Hazard, Kentucky before moving down the road to Louisville where he covered five Kentucky Derbys. Derek joined D.C News after spending nearly two decades in television. He began his career working as a producer and later moved up the ranks along the way. With every move and every opportunity, one thing has always remained the same. It is the people who make the experiences worthwhile. Derek has had the pleasure of covering the NBA All-Star game, NFL Draft, The MLB All-star game, Final Fours, and high school state championships. But it is the relationships built during this time which has meant the most to him.
As mentioned, he had many stops along the way on his journey to the DMV. Louisville is where he covered the most impactful story for him: The death of Muhammad Ali. To see the city come together to celebrate his life is something he will never forget. To hear so many stories of the man he was outside of the ring will always be memorable. From Louisville the journey took me to Cincinnati Ohio, followed by Cleveland, OH. My passion lies in the country’s national pastime. Baseball is truly a passion of his, along with fitness. Derek is looking forward to experiencing what the sports landscape of the DMV has to offer and looks forward to sharing the stories of the athletes we watch every single day. During his free time, you will probably catch him working out somewhere. He also found a love for CrossFit. You can also find him covering the sport as a member of the CrossFit media team as a CrossFit Games Host.
