Dave Ryan

Dave Ryan grew up in Colorado Springs, Colorado, where he was a mediocre student, was chosen last in gym class, and never quite made Eagle Scout. Only upon discovering his love for radio did Dave make an effort at something for the first time in his life. Dave has worked in radio in his hometown, Las Vegas, Nevada; Columbus, Ohio; and Phoenix, Arizona, where he was fired twice in two years. He came to Minneapolis in 1993 to host the morning show on 101.3 KDWB in 1993. The Dave Ryan Show is now heard around the world on iHeartRadio and is one of the most recognized and respected in the radio industry. Dave is a pilot, a MENSA member, an avid motorcyclist, a snowboarder, and a four-time marathon finisher. He’s also very judgmental, a chronic yo-yo dieter, and often spits when he talks. He has four kids and lives in Chanhassen, Minnesota, with his wife, his youngest son, and one too many pets.
