Ryan came to WTAP as the Digital Producer after graduating from Virginia Tech in May 2019.

Ryan joined the WTAP News Team as the Digital News Editor in June of 2019.
Ryan was born and raised in Columbia, Maryland, just south of Baltimore, but has ties to the Parkersburg and Mid-Ohio Valley area. His mother, along with her three siblings, grew up in the area, giving him many opportunities to visit as a child. Since then, he has grown very familiar with the area, and is looking forward to connect with people in the Mid-Ohio Valley. Being in Parkersburg full time, he will now spend much more time with his grandparents.
He graduated from Virginia Tech with Bachelor of Arts in Communication and majored in Multimedia Journalism with a concentration in Sports Media and Analytics.
He has experience writing for the Pulaski Yankees, Varsity Journal, and writing sports for the Virginia Tech newspaper, “Collegiate Times.” This is his first professional newsroom experience.
In his spare time, Ryan is an avid sports fan, and roots for his Hokies football and basketball, along with his D.C. teams like the Nationals, Wizards, and Redskins. He also loves to golf, and to spend time with his girlfriend Solomia, and her dog Marshmallow.
