Field Correspondent/Producer

Jill Ryan joined KJZZ in 2020 as a morning reporter, and she is currently a field correspondent and Morning Edition producer. Ryan received her master’s degree in investigative reporting from Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Communication.

At ASU, she participated in multiple investigative reporting projects, and her work has been seen in the Houston Chronicle, the Boston Globe, the Arizona Republic and of course KJZZ News. She also wrote for the Knight-Cronkite News Lab, a website that publishes stories about new innovations in television news and the journalists and meteorologists behind those outlets.

During her undergrad, at Stony Brook University in Long Island, New York, she interned for NPR-affiliate WSHU Public Radio and then became a news fellow for her entire senior year. She fell in love with radio, and in her spare time she enjoys listening to podcasts like KJZZ's Sun Up, RadioLab and the Hidden Brain.
