Ryan Matthey comes to KRCR News Channel 7 as a multimedia journalist from sunny Southern California. He graduated from California State University, Fullerton with a degree in broadcast journalism in May 2020.
His passion for journalism began in his teenage years where he anchored and reported for his high school broadcast “iTV”. This led him to pursue journalism work in college where he produced, hosted and reported for shows such as “OC News” and “The Report”.
Growing up in Irvine, California, Ryan spent his time in Orange County avidly going to Disneyland and sampling new food spots in his free time. He was a cast member at “the happiest place on earth” throughout college, where he worked as an attraction host, trainer and lead in Fantasyland, Toontown, and Frontierland.
The coronavirus pandemic put him out of a job but was fortunate enough to earn a reporter role at KRCR News just a month after graduating college.
Ryan has been with KRCR News Channel 7 since June 2020 and says he is ecstatic to explore all the food, people, and opportunities the Northstate has to offer.
