Although he is originally from Virginia, Cameron has lived most of his life in the Sunshine State and considers it his home.
Cameron graduated from the University of Florida, where he earned two bachelor’s degrees in telecommunications and political science. Go Gators!
During his time at the University of Florida, he anchored, reported, and produced for the NPR affiliate, WUFT-FM, and the PBS affiliate, WUFT-TV. Over the course of his college career, Cameron learned to craft enterprise stories and truly become a “one man band” journalist. He also developed the skills to be a community oriented and watch dog journalist.
During his final year at UF, he was given the opportunity to report for the NBC/CBS affiliate in Gainesville while still attending college.
He’s also interned for CBS News in Washington, D.C. and various news outlets across the state of Florida ranging from Gainesville to Tampa.
Cameron’s radio and television work have been recognized by RTDNA, the National Broadcasting Society, the Society of Professional Journalists, and the Florida Associated Press. He was recently awarded a national Edward R. Murrow award for his report on the declining oyster industry and its effects on a small North Central Florida town.
Cameron is honored to be a part of the NewsChannel 7 team so that he can report the stories that matter to the Panhandle community.
