Ryan Mutch joined News 5 as a photojournalist in March of 2015. A native of eastern Oregon, Ryan graduated from the University of Idaho in 2012 with a Bachelors of Science in Radio/TV/Digital Media Production.
He got his first taste of journalism as a photographer for KFYR in Bismarck, North Dakota. While in Bismarck, he honed his skills with a camera covering a wide range of stories, including the Bakken oil boom, the 2015 North Dakota Legislative Session, and producing local content for North Dakota Today.
Since becoming a member of the News 5 team, Ryan has been taken part in coverage of the shooting at Planned Parenthood and campaign rallies during the 2016 Presidential Election.
Without visuals, you don't have a good story, and Ryan always strives to bring the best shots he can to News 5's coverage of southern Colorado.
When he's not working, Ryan can still be found with a camera in his hands while hiking high up into the Rocky Mountains to capture photos of unique landscapes that are part of the reason why he enjoys being in Colorado.
