Ryan Vaughan

Ryan has a beautiful wife, 2 great boys and 2 awesome girls. He's a big fan of football and basketball. When not at work, you can often catch him at one of their kids' activities, out riding his bike, or fishing.

Ryan was born and raised in Nashville, TN and went to college at Western Kentucky University, graduating with a B.S. in Geography/Meteorology. While at WKU, he also carried a minor in Broadcast News.

Ryan started at KAIT in 2001. As you may recall, he left for 3 years to work at another Raycom Media station, WSFA, in Montgomery, AL, before returning to raise my family in Region 8 in 2005.

Outside of the television business, Ryan have worked as a Weather Observer for the Federal Aviation Administration. He also worked for my Dad's plumbing company for a few years, probably having learned more about life at that job than anywhere else. Plus, working with his Dad was an adventure!

Ryan is a full member of the American Meteorological Society and the National Weather Association, also holds the NWA Seal of Approval, and was the 2016 Broadcaster of the Year from the National Weather Association.
