Ryan Robertson graduated from Scottsbluff High School, so he was somewhat familiar with the area when he took the reins as KGWN’s News Director in May of 2018.
Ryan began his broadcasting career while still in school at the University of Nebraska Lincoln. After graduation, Ryan and his wife moved to Kearney, NE where they welcomed their first child, a daughter, into the world.
Ryan quickly moved up the ranks at NTV in Kearney. He started as a weekend photographer and left two and a half years later as an anchor/reporter. After Kearney, Ryan and his family moved to Texas and welcomed another member to the family; a son.
The Robertson family of four moved back to Nebraska where Ryan took a job with NET, the state’s NPR and PBS affiliate. After spending several years in public media, Ryan returned to broadcast television news as an Assignment Manager at 10/11 News in Lincoln, the Capitol City’s CBS affiliate. It was during this timeframe Ryan really honed and fine-tuned his management skills so he’d be ready to take on the challenges of being KGWN’s next News Director.
Ryan is committed to making KGWN NewsChannel 5 the go-to source for news, sports, and weather in Cheyenne. If you have an idea for a story, feel free to email him.
