Ryan Hill joined KFOX14 as a multimedia journalist in June 2015.
He may have been born in the Detroit, Michigan, but Ryan has bounced around the United States quite a bit - moving six times to six different states. But St. Petersburg, Florida, is where he calls home.
After high school Ryan ventured west, where he attended the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University. He graduated cum laude with a degree in journalism and a minor in political science.
During his time at the Cronkite School, Ryan was a co-anchor and reporter for the award-winning Cronkite News airing on KAET PBS Ch. 8, reaching 2 million homes every night. He was named a 2015 Hearst Intercollegiate Journalism Award semi-finalist for his reporting for Cronkite News. His piece on the controversy surrounding the potential Grand Canyon business developments and tribal controversy aired on PBS "NewsHour." He also covered the Milwaukee Brewers' spring training and Super Bowl XLIX for the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel and azcentral.com. Ryan has held internships with USA Today and WUSA - the CBS affiliate in Washington, D.C.
Ryan enjoys the simple things in life - a good pair of cowboy boots, movies, all things OutKast and watching a ball game. He is eager and excited to cover and tell the gripping stories of the Borderland.
He says everyone and everything has a story; it is just waiting to be told. If you have a story idea or anything you feel should be addressed, feel free to reach out to Ryan via email, Twitter and/or Facebook.
