Ryan Kessler joined the Global Saskatoon team in the fall of 2015, hoping to take the next step in his reporting career, while returning to life on the prairies.
He developed a passion for broadcast news during his studies at Red River College and The University of Winnipeg. While in his final semester in Red River’s Creative Communications program, Ryan was offered a part-time job in talk radio in Winnipeg – his hometown.
At first, he anchored two weekend evening newscasts per week. Over the next year and a half, Ryan also reported, did traffic and produced a nationally-syndicated program. At the same time, he finished his Communications degree at the U of W.
The opportunity to tell stories for a TV and online audience brought Ryan to Northern British Columbia in 2014. One highlight was covering the Canada Winter Games that captivated the City of Prince George for two weeks.
Though he is a news reporter first and foremost, Ryan is also an avid sports fan. He enjoys returning home to cheer on the Winnipeg Jets.
He also enjoys running, reading and spending time with four-legged friends.
