Ryan Dennis


Chief Meteorologist

Ryan Dennis joined KRTV as the evening meteorologist in April of 2021. Ryan then became the Chief Meteorologist in November of 2022. Prior to coming here, Ryan was the morning meteorologist at a TV station in Twin Falls, Idaho for two and a half years.

Ryan grew up in Maryland and has had a passion for the weather ever since he was a kid. The one weather event that really sparked his interest in weather was a blizzard in 2003 that dropped several feet of snow, enough so that it was as tall as he was, and he wondered how it was possible to get so much snow from one storm. Ryan then got his first taste at forecasting during high school when he was the go-to guy for any and all snow events as everyone wanted to know how much snow they would be getting and whether school would be open or closed.

After high school, Ryan attended Salisbury University in Salisbury, Maryland, where he received his B.S. in Geography with a concentration in Atmospheric Sciences and his B.S. in Earth Science. Ryan then attended The University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona, where he received his M.S. in Atmospheric Sciences.

In his free time, Ryan loves to hike and play sports as well as travel and explore new places. Ryan also enjoys volunteering in the community. He is currently a Big Brother with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Montana, and he is a volunteer youth sports coach with the Salvation Army. Ryan is also an avid Baltimore Ravens and Orioles fan as he makes sure he never misses a game.
