Ryan Cody

I am so excited to be a part of the WHNT News 19 Sports team all the way from the Texas panhandle, where I covered, among other sports, high school football. It's the single most important aspect of life to sports fans in west Texas!

However, as much as the folks in the Lone Star State need their high school football, nothing compares to the passion and desire people in our state demand for their Alabama and Auburn coverage. I can say with great confidence the sports team here at WHNT News 19 will be your best source for everything that relates to the Tigers and Crimson Tide.

After graduating from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University, I got my "big break" as a news reporter at KFDA in Amarillo. This job allowed for me to eventually move into a sports career and the rest is history!

While football is my passion, I also have a great love for many other sports. In fact, slicing my driver in to the woods, air balling layups, and getting my skis crossed up on the slopes are common activities you can find me doing in my spare time.

While I believe football is more than just a game, it still pales in comparison to the importance of family and friends in my life. My mother, father and sister are without a doubt the backbone of my existence and I owe all my successes to them.

Please do not hesitate to send me an email if there is a cool sports story going on in your town! Because after all, this whole TV news thing isn't about me, it's about you! Email me at ryan.cody@whnt.com.

One of my favorite quotes: "I can't imagine a person becoming a success who doesn't give this game of life everything he's got." - Walter Cronkite
