Ranji Sinha joined KIRO 7 in August 2017 and has spent several years covering the Pacific Northwest for KIRO 7’s evening and morning newscasts. He’s been part of KIRO 7’s Emmy nominated coverage of the Dupont train derailment in December 2017 and the Port Orchard Tornado in December 2018. He’s also been part of our continuing coverage of the grounding of the Boeing 737 Max, as well as the hunt for suspects who have attacked several Jehovah’s Witness Kingdom Halls in the South Sound. After years of working nights, Ranji shifted to KIRO 7 Mornings and was part of our marathon snow coverage in February 2019.
Ranji came to KIRO 7 from News 12 New Jersey, the 24-hour news in Northern New Jersey, where he honed skills for breaking news and quick story turns. He’s also worked at the CBS affiliate in Western Michigan, as well as NBC stations in Burlington, Vermont-Plattsburgh, New York and Charlottesville, Virginia.
Ranji is a native New Yorker, who grew up in Long Island, about 40 minutes outside Manhattan, New York City. Even though Ranji hails from the East Coast, both he and his family were excited to move cross country to join KIRO 7. He lives in Seattle with his wife and daughter and is now proud to call the Pacific Northwest home.
When he’s not working, Ranji enjoys spending time with his family but is a huge fan of TV and film, and also a big sports fan. He’s enjoyed exploring nature here in the Pacific Northwest and loves sampling the great food and drinks our region has to offer.
In the race to recover from the Covid19 Pandemic and recession some industries are leading the charge. KIRO 7 TV is committed to helping our region recover and spotlighting the industries that are offering jobs now - and have the best chance for long term growth and stability.
Washington’s economy changed almost overnight in March of 2020 and with changing restrictions, recovery has been rocky. But construction is one area that has not taken a huge hit. The industry is hiring and expected to continue to take on new recruits.
