Hi! I’m Jake Ryan. I live in Beavercreek with my wife Kristin, our 2-year old son, Caleb, and 6-month old son Truman. Yes, our house is crazy, but we love it! Parenting is still a little new to us, and I love talking about it on the air, because people will call in or comment on Facebook and tell us what to do. So basically, you have a hand in raising our boys. I love to go running, try new restaurants, watch the Browns on T.V., am a freak about funny t-shirts, and cook on the grill. If you smell food burning on a grill in Beavercreek, it’s probably coming from our house.
Where were you born?
What is your favorite TV show?
I’m a sucker for “Dancing with the Stars” and “The Voice”…and any reality show. Am I still a guy?
What was the first thing you ever wanted to be?
After seeing E.T., I wanted to be Eliot…and be best friends with E.T.
How might someone have described you in high school?
Someone who shouldn’t be at the “cool” table at lunch.
What was your first job?
Janitor for a Steel Factory…not sure why, but I loved it. My first paycheck bounced though!
What was your first job in radio?
Babysitting a computer in a studio and making sure we didn’t go off the air. I didn’t know what to do if we did, so I took naps.
What do you like about your job?
Telling people what’s going on in the world and in Dayton!
What might people be surprised to know about you?
I like to snuggle…more than my wife. I’ll snuggle with a pillow if she’s not interested. I’m also very hairy.
What would be a perfect day for you?
Going to a great restaurant with our family, road trip to the zoo, then to a great Country show in Dayton!
What advice would you have for someone wanting to go into the business?
You HAVE to be willing to move. After that, get as much face time with people as possible.
