Ryan Shaver joined the KIMT News 3 team in June of 2012 as a reporter. For the first 22 years of his life, Ryan was a Minnesota resident, but he’s excited to now call Iowa home.
Ryan attended Benilde-St. Margaret’s High School in St. Louis Park where he was the captain of the football team and an All-Conference running back and linebacker. He graduated from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota in 2012. During his time at St. Thomas, Ryan worked for TommieMedia.com where he spent semesters as the sports editor, production editor and director. Ryan was a Regional Emmy Nominee in 2011 and 2012 for his work anchoring the student-produced sports show “The Locker Room,” and he also interned in the sports department at KARE-TV in Minneapolis where he got the unique chance to work with his father, Randy.
In his free time Ryan enjoys playing and watching sports (he’s a diehard Timberwolves and Vikings fan), strumming his guitar, hanging out with his friends and family and finding adventurous things to do that are sure to make his mother worry.
Ryan is devoted to telling other people’s stories and can’t wait to share his passion with the viewers. He credits his mother and father for all that he’s accomplished so far and couldn’t have done any of it without all of their love and support.
If you have a news tip or story idea you can send it to Ryan below, but he’d also appreciate if you stopped and said hi if you see him around.
