13 Questions With… Ryan Hill!

  1. Where did you grow up? I grew in the Sunshine State! St. Petersburg, Florida is where I call home and I try to go back whenever I can get a chance.
  2. What is your ideal scenario for a day off? My ideal day off is getting a chance to kick back and relax after a long week. I’m also a big sports fan so, I’m definitely eager to check out a Kings game or head to Raley Field for a River Cats game!
  3. How did you decide to be a reporter/anchor? I moved around a lot when I was growing up. (Lived in five states by the time I was 18) So, I enjoyed talking to people, hearing about their stories and where they were from when I moved to a new area. It became secondhand nature for me. Originally, I planned on being a sports anchor or reporter. In my last semester at Arizona State, I started reporting for Cronkite News, got the news bug and I was hooked!
  4. Where is your favorite local place to eat? Being from Florida, I’m a big seafood fan and I really enjoyed Station 16. I also became a Mexican food fanatic living in El Paso. A great taco plate or anything with green chile is right up my alley!
  5. What is your favorite social media platform? I’m always looking on Twitter and Facebook for what’s going on in our area. So feel free to follow me on Twitter at @RyanCBS13 or like my Facebook page at @RyanHillCBS13
  6. If you didn’t work in TV news what would you be doing? Hmm…that’s a good question. I probably would have tried to find a job with a professional sports team in public relations or marketing.
  7. What is the most memorable story you’ve covered at CBS13/CW31? I just started but I’m looking forward to telling some great stories here!
  8. What is your favorite season? Does the start of the MLB season count? Just kidding! I’d probably say spring.
  9. When do you wake up on a workday? Weekend? Workdays I tend to get up at around 6:00-6:30 a.m. I need coffee in the morning in order to function.
  10. Why do you love Northern California? I lived in NorCal before from about ’97 to about ’05. It’s a place where I made some of best friends and memories! Kind of hard not to love that.
  11. Where was your best vacation ever? I’ve traveled quite a bit but one of my favorites was a trip to England and France that I took with my parents back in the day. I’m a big history buff so it was great to learn about the lengthy history of those countries.
  12. Favorite sport to watch in person? On TV? You put a football or baseball game on TV I am locked in! Same thing goes for going to one of those games live!
  13. Favorite TV show? Movie? My favorite TV show on-air right now is either Snowfall or Yellowstone. My favorite of all-time is The Wire. My favorite movie is either The Departed or Spotlight.
