Charles Ryan has built quite a name for himself in the business community of our region. Charles Ryan Associates is a very prominent public relations/marketing firm in Charleston. Yet, Charlie continues to get recognized for something he hasn’t done for 34 years – television! Charles Ryan got his start in the business with WSAZ. He was an anchor and a reporter starting in the 60s.

Ryan left this message for his fans:
“It is a real pleasure for me to once again connect with the WSAZ audience. Although my years in the Channel 3 newsroom were in the 1960s, I truly feel I have always been a member of a unique family of distinguished broadcasters who brought a new medium to the tri-state. My thanks to the WSAZ audience then and now for remembering some great times with one whom so very much appreciates the professionals past and present at one of America’s foremost television stations.”
