His professional career began when he applied for an internship at one of Atlanta's top radio stations, WSTR/Star 94, at the age of 16. Initially he was turned down, but Ryan submitted a demo tape to the station's program director that was impressive. Ryan was offered the job as an on-air personality and eventually was given the 7 PM to Midnight shift. The show became one of the highest rated for the station and, all along, Ryan kept up his school work and even made time to play on his high school football team (he is a Falcon fan!) He continued at Star 94 throughout high school and while attending the University of Georgia. During his freshman year in college, Ryan was offered his first television show hosting the daily sports game show Radical Outdoor Challenge for ESPN, which he did during the weekends while still attending college. In 1995, Ryan moved to LA to further his radio career as the afternoon drive time DJ on local radio station Star 98.7 and to pursue additional opportunities in the entertainment industry. Those opportunities included hosting; Gladiators 2000, Wild Animal Games, Total Rush, Click, the E! red carpet premiere of Tomorrow Never Dies & Talk Soup. He is currently hosting The New Edge & NBC's Saturday Night Movie! He's also made guest appearances on Leeza, Melrose Place & The Dating Game. Ryan is very busy as he is still a DJ for Star 98.7, but when he's not, he enjoys running and working out. Although he eats out almost every night, he loves to cook and if his career ever fails, Ryan may go to culinary school! However, his career seems to be going in the opposite direction of failure, in fact, he placed #20 on the E! "20 Under 30" celebrity success list and was named one of Los Angeles magazine's sexiest things in the city! Ryan has resided in Los Angeles, CA.
