Dana was born in September 1972 to Gary and Lila Delaney. Dana was born at a Rapid City, South Dakota Hospital while her Dad was stationed at the Ellsworth Air-Force Base. Dana has a younger brother.
After Gary’s time was completed in the Air Force, the family moved to Iowa, where Dana’s parents were both born and raised. Gary farmed for many years, and was also an electrician. In 1986, when the farming economy was at the worst, the family moved to South Florida, and then after Dana graduated high school in 1991, the family moved to Brevard County.
Dana completed a degree in Early Childhood Education, and after years of working in the field of early childhood, Dana married Christopher Loyd in 2004. Dana became a parent by marriage to Chris’s son, and together Chris and Dana had two more boys. Dana left the field to focus on her boys, who are her top priority.
In 2007, Dana had her first taste of local politics, and learned the inside and outside of campaigning. Dana became hooked on the on-goings of local politics here in Brevard, and began blogging on Florida Today until she was kicked off, for being “too controversial”.
In 2010 Brevardsbestnews.com was launched, and has kept Dana busy ever since. Dana prides herself on exposing the corruption, and researching until the truth is found. Dana was instrumental in exposing the corruption within West Melbourne Police Department as well as Titusville Police Department, and Port Canaveral Police Department.
Dana believes in accountability, and responsibility of our local government, and believes that everyone deserves to be treated with equality. Dana will fight tooth and nail for the “under-dogs” and ask the tough questions that no other reporter will.

“Dana Loyd is one of the best researchers I know. With a personality you have to get used to, Dana always looks for the truth with regards to official or government corruption. How can anyone not like that? No matter how deep Dana has to dig, she sticks to what is important, not personal bull…t. Dana doesn’t attack personal issues or even care about that. I’ve watched Dana grow and her spot on research proves her over and over again.”
