Before coming to the Midstate, Ryan worked at WNEP, the ABC affiliate in Scranton, Pennsylvania. He has also logged time as the Chief Meteorologist at WIVT in Binghamton, New York.
He’s always stayed closed to his roots, having grown up in the Lehigh Valley, where his extended family still lives.
Ryan has earned the title of Certified Broadcast Meteorologist from the AMS. It’s an elite designation for individuals who have undergone rigorous examination by the American Meteorological Society. Meteorologists with this seal have passed a stringent written exam testing their understanding of weather and forecasting. Their on-air work is also reviewed by a team of AMS experts who rate their ability to communicate critical weather information to their audience.
Ryan attended college in the snow belt of upstate New York. He earned a degree in Meteorology from Oswego State, and one in Broadcast Journalism at Syracuse University from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. While at Syracuse he also earned a third degree (his forgotten one as he calls it) in Geography.
When not covering the wild world of weather, Ryan loves spending time with his wife and son. He is a firm believer in the idea of “family”. He and his wife Tiffany both consider themselves foodies and are right at home in the kitchen. Ryan also spent several years as a ski instructor in the Pocono Mountains. He says his teaching career has gone into early retirement, but you can still find him on the slopes in his free time.
Now Ryan continues his journey down Interstate 81; starting in Syracuse, to Binghamton, Scranton and onto Harrisburg.
