Ryan joined the KGNS News in May of 2010. Since then he has worn many hats.

He got his start as a reporter for Pro 8 News, while also co-anchoring the CW's First News at Nine. During that time he was responsible for news, weather and sports on the CW, while also reporting the news at 5, 6, and 10 for KGNS. After a year he would transition away from the CW and to the weekend sports desk, while continuing to report for KGNS. In September of 2011, Ryan made the full transition to Sports Director, working daily to bring the Laredo area the best in local and regional sports coverage.

Ryan comes to Laredo from the Pacific Northwest, where he was born and raised in Vancouver, WA. He grew up yearning to be a professional athlete but realized, at a young age that probably wasn't going to happen. He also realized he could still be around sports by being on TV. To gain the necessary skills to do his job, Ryan attended the Edward R. Murrow School of Communication, at Washington State University (Go Cougs!), where he won multiple awards for his on-air coverage both in television and radio.

In his spare time Ryan enjoys being around friends and relaxing on the weekends. He loves playing and watching sports. His favorite teams are the Portland Trail Blazers, Chicago Cubs, Seattle Mariners, Oakland Raiders and, of course, the Washington State Cougars. You can email Ryan at ryan.bailey@kgns.tv.
