Ryan Simms is thrilled to be making a return to Washington State!
He joined KIRO 7 as a reporter in January 2020, joining the station from KPHO/KTVK-TV in Phoenix, Ariz..
Prior to his time in the scorching southwest, Ryan is proud to have reported and anchored the news from every television market in Washington State.
He began his career as a reporter and anchor at KIMA-TV in Yakima, Washington. From there, he worked as an anchor/reporter for KEPR-TV in the Tri-Cities. Three years later, he went to KREM-TV in Spokane, where he worked as both an anchor and a nightside reporter.
While in Spokane, Ryan reported live from such critical events as the 2014 Marysville Pilchuck High School shooting, the 2015 Okanogan Complex Fires, the 2016 Washington gubernatorial election.
Now that Ryan is back in the Northwest (where he says he belongs!), he cannot wait to go running along the beautiful Puget Sound!
An avid aviation geek, you can always find Ryan plane spotting at Sea-Tac as well.
If you have a story idea, or would just like to say "hello", Ryan would love to hear from you!
