Hello, I'm Ryan Grimes.
This is the guy with the big bellowing voice on some news pieces you might have seen on CBS News 13. I hope to start networking myself more with the public and start showing people what I'm like and who I am when it comes to your news! I suppose I'll start with a quick biography about myself.
I like to say that I am Alaska grown, not Alaska born. I moved here from the lower 48 when I was very young. When I first landed in Fairbanks by plane, I remember thinking about how cold this place could get.
Seriously, 40 below zero? Come on now!
I have since survived -and thrived- inside the Golden Heart City.
I was hired to be a reporter for CBS News 13 at the age of 19. Yeah, I'm a young guy. I'm writing this blog as a 21 year old with a horizontal ID card hot off the press. I'm proud to be representing my age group as a reporter, and so far I've grown to fit this extremely demanding and intensely rewarding career.
Instead of just reporting as the guy with the big bellowing voice on your television set, I hope to report as the guy with that big bellowing text on my blog for you to read from.
I plan to talk about:
1: My own observations about local and national events
2: My experiences and quirks shared inside the newsroom
3: My life, including what I like to do and my own personal thoughts
I expect to be updating this blog as much as I am able to. Check back often to see what I'm up to in your local news!
