Having grown up in Oswego, KS, Rye has called the Four-States “home” for much of his life. He graduated from Pittsburg State University in 2008, where he majored in Broadcast Communications. He spent two years as a news reporter for KAKE-TV in Wichita, KS.
Rye was eager to move back to the Four-States and quickly found his calling in TV sales. He joined KOAM / FOX 14 as a Marketing Consultant in 2011, where he discovered his passion for working with local businesses. In 2020, he became the General Sales Manager for the stations.
If the weather is nice, chances are you’ll find Rye outside. He loves playing golf, gardening, swimming, grilling, and going on walks with his family.
