Nate Ryan joined the KVIA team in June of 2019 as the Weekend Sports Anchor/Reporter, and is eager to provide in-depth sports coverage for all of the Borderland.
Nate comes to ABC-7 from ESPN headquarters in Bristol, CT, where he served as a Production Assistant on the staff of SportsCenter. While working for SportsCenter, Nate did everything from producing feature segments to writing scripts for the anchors he grew up idolizing as a kid. If you ever wondered who was responsible for picking SportsCenter's "Top 10 Plays," many times it was Nate! Most recently, he was part of the staff that launched ESPN's new sports betting show, Daily Wager.
Nate graduated from DePauw (IN) University with a Communications/Spanish degree, and served as the primary Play-by-Play Broadcaster and Traveling Anchor for DePauw's athletic programs. He also spent time interning for Univision News in Miami.
Born and raised in Downtown Chicago, Nate grew up a few blocks south of Wrigley Field. Naturally, his favorite team is the Chicago Cubs. If you ask him, the best meal in the world is prepared in his hometown at a restaurant ironically called "Chicago's Pizza." But he's constantly on the lookout for challengers, so El Paso... give him all you've got! Fair warning, it's tough to beat 24-hour delivery!
Nate studies all sports closely, but his favorites are Baseball, College Football, and College Basketball. He lives for packed gymnasiums and crowded tailgates, and considers the NCAA Basketball Tournament a national holiday. He can't wait to see all the school spirit in the Borderland!
Nate loves being outdoors, whether it's jogging around town or hiking in the Franklin Mountains. Coming from the chilly winters of Chicago & New England, he can't get enough of the Sun City!
Nate is new to El Paso and he'd love to hear from you, so don't hesitate to reach out with recommendations, tips, & story ideas, or just say hello! ¡Se Habla Espanol!
