Jermaine Ferrell

Jermaine Ferrell joined the WFXR team in August 2015 as a sports anchor/reporter. He comes to us from our sister station KFDX in Wichita Falls, Texas, where Jermaine was the weekend sports anchor/sports reporter for 18 months. He is excited to return home to Roanoke.

Jermaine was born and raised in Roanoke, Va. He is a proud graduate of Patrick Henry High School. Jermaine graduated from Cameron University in Lawton, Oklahoma with a bachelor’s degree in communications. He also is a military veteran, having served in the U.S. Army for eight years.

One of the biggest sports events Jermaine got to cover was the first College Football Playoff Championship game in January 2015 in Arlington, Texas, between Ohio State and Oregon. He assisted in providing coverage to all of the Nexstar stations.

His passion for broadcasting started at a young age. He says as a child he would pretend to be a news anchor by reading the paper to his parents, grandparents, siblings, or anyone else who would listen.

Jermaine is a big fan of the Virginia Tech Hokies, Dallas Cowboys, Los Angeles Lakers, and New York Yankees. In his spare time he loves to spend time with his wife Yolaunda as well as his mom Catherine, his brother Joe, his sisters Ellen and Christy, and other family members and friends. Jermaine is a member of Jerusalem Baptist Church in Roanoke. Jermaine feels that having a loving life and a strong faith in that all things are possible if you just believe. Jermaine says he looks at every day as a blessing.
