Spectrum News Sports Director Ricky Doyle grew up watching the great University of Washington Huskies football teams and has been hooked on college football ever since.

Before joining Spectrum News, Ricky was the sports director for KKCO, the NBC affiliate in Grand Junction, Colorado. He also worked in production for ESPN in Bristol.

Ricky earned his master's degree in broadcast journalism from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism.

He did his undergrad at Boston College, where he traveled across the country as the play-by-play announcer for the student radio station.

Ricky was born in Chicago and grew up on Mercer Island, Washington, just east of Seattle.

If he isn't working, he's probably either watching or playing sports. He is a lifelong tennis player and skier.
