I was born and raised in New Jersey right outside of Philadelphia. I have always dreamed of being a sports broadcaster and I have dedicated years of my life working in television and radio that has led me to a once in a lifetime opportunity with KFYR.

In high school, I decided to forgo participating in varsity sports my junior year to focus on pursuing my career and passion for sports broadcasting. I joined the local cable television station covering all high school sports as a sideline reporter and was promoted to play by play broadcaster my senior year of high school. After graduating high school, I studied two years at the local community college and worked with the college radio station as a sideline reporter for the Arena Football League Philadelphia Soul. I was also responsible for producing radio broadcasts while hosting and producing the weekly sports talk show.

After community college, I transferred to Rutgers University The State University of New Jersey. At Rutgers, I worked extensively with Big Ten Network Plus as a sideline reporter and director for all the live sporting events. The fall semester of my senior year of college I was an intern for SportsNet New York (SNY) working exclusively with everything involving the New York Jets.

I graduated in May 2017 with a degree in Journalism and Media Studies with a specification in Sports Journalism. Its an absolute honor and a privilege to get my career started with KFYR and to work with L.T and the rest of the staff here at KFYR. Please feel free to contact me by email Ryan.farrell@kfyrtv.com
