Ryan Finn is a SUNY Albany graduate and a proud Troy native. After a five-year stint in Syracuse, Ryan returned to his hometown to work as a full-time meteorologist with the Spectrum News 1 Capital Region team.

Throughout Ryan’s time with the Spectrum News 1 weather team, Ryan has covered countless impactful stories. More so, Ryan works on the annual Winter Weather Outlook each year, bracing the Capital Region for what’s to come in the wintry months ahead. Among all of the stories he’s shared, his coverage of Hurricane Irene sticks out to him the most. With hours of constant updates and alerts, it’s stories like this that remind Ryan how much his viewers rely on him to provide them with accurate forecasts.

Living in a city with so many exceptional breweries and restaurants, Ryan claims that it’s impossible not to dine out frequently. During the summer months, Ryan is a regular at the farmers market in downtown Troy. Aside from that, you can find him grabbing a bite and a drink at Rockin’ on the River. While Ryan enjoys a good meal, his passion for the outdoors and hiking is the only other thing that can equal his love of meteorology. As an all-seasons hiker, Ryan became an Adirondack 46er this year after climbing Mt. Colden in November.
