Iowa native Ryan Morris has served as Executive Producer of Local 5’s "Good Morning Iowa" since the Fall of 2020.
A seasoned news professional, Ryan has worn many hats over the years with several newsrooms across the country. He’s glad to be serving his community back in his home state.
Ryan is a 2004 graduate of the University of Iowa with bachelor’s degrees in Journalism and Theatre Arts. Ryan got his start at KCRG-TV9 in Cedar Rapids, working in production while he attended school. From there he served as a producer at KAAL in Austin, Minnesota and at KVOA in Tucson, Arizona, where he won the Associated Press Broadcasters Association award for “Best Producer” in his division.
After Tucson, Ryan worked as a social media and digital best practices consultant for newsrooms across the country. But after many long years on the road, the newsroom called to him once again and he was more than happy to answer.
Ryan is a husband and father of two. He enjoys playing live music around the Des Moines metro in his spare time.
