Ryan Peterson

Posted: Updated:

Ryan Peterson anchors 9 On Your Side at 5:00pm and 5:30pm as well as 9 On Your Side at 10:00pm on the CW.

From crime to the arts, from politics to the circus, Ryan has covered it all.

Ryan comes to Eastern Carolina by way of YNN – Your News Now, Time Warner Cable's 24-hour local news network for New York State. A charter employee, Ryan joined YNN as a bureau reporter in 2002. He quickly rose through ranks and became an anchor in 2006. In addition to his duties on the desk Ryan hosted YNN's weekly home improvement/real estate segment, "Your Home." 

Ryan began his broadcast career in New York City in 1999 as an NBC Page. During his tenure at the "peacock," Ryan worked on such shows as NBC Nightly News, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, the Rosie O'Donnell Show and the legendary Saturday Night Live. Ryan then moved 20 blocks north of "30 Rock" to the home of ABC News where he worked as a production coordinator for the news magazines, 20/20 and PrimeTime. While there Ryan worked on the network's 24-hour coverage of the millennium celebration and the aftermath of September 11th.

Ryan, along with his wife Amy and daughter Olivia, are excited to call Eastern North Carolina home and look forward to taking advantage of everything the Tar Heel state has to offer.
