It’s been a long and winding road to the journalism world for Ryan Flaherty. He briefly studied drama at the University of Saskatchewan before diving head-first into a career with the Canadian Forces.
Ryan joined the Naval Reserve in 2001 and served as a supply technician aboard HMCS UNICORN in Saskatoon before returning to school in 2009. Ryan enrolled in the Radio and Television Arts program at NAIT in Edmonton while continuing to work part-time as a Reservist.
Upon graduation in 2011, Ryan moved to Victoria where he continued to serve with the Forces while working as a freelance print reporter with Black Press, covering everything from council meetings to bald eagle nesting habits for the Oak Bay News and other local papers.
Nearly a year later, Ryan decided to devote his energy to the reason he attended NAIT in the first place: to pursue a career in sports broadcasting.
He got his start in television at CHAT-TV in Medicine Hat, Alta., where he first worked as a news reporter before moving into the sports department and eventually being promoted to the position of sports director.
Ryan spent just over three years at CHAT before an opportunity to come home and work at Global Saskatoon presented itself. He’s excited to be a part of the Global family and to be back in Saskatoon near family and friends.
When he’s not covering the Rush, Hilltops, Huskies or Blades, Ryan enjoys travelling, live music, cycling and pretty much anything edible.
