Before starting work at WFXR News, digital anchor/executive producer Ryan Saylor spent nearly five years working in communications and social media management on Capitol Hill. While in Washington, D.C., he partnered with WFXR’s sister stations across Arkansas to create “Your Voice Arkansas.” The prime-time forum featured each congressman from the state’s delegation in the U.S. House of Representatives and aired on six stations reaching 98 percent of Arkansas.
Prior to his work on the Hill, Ryan worked in digital and print media covering the news throughout Arkansas and eastern Oklahoma. He has served as a business and politics reporter for The City Wire in Fort Smith, Arkansas; contributor to Talk Business & Politics in Little Rock, Arkansas; and lead reporter at the Paragould Daily Press in northeast Arkansas.
Ryan is a member of the Virginia Pro Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists.
