Ryan Kath is an award-winning investigative journalist who joined WBZ-TV in March 2015 as an I-Team Correspondent for WBZ-TV News.

Kath joined WBZ-TV from KSHB-TV in Kansas City where he spent eight years, the last four as an investigative reporter.

Kath’s investigative stories earned more than a dozen Emmy awards, received recognition from the Kansas and Missouri Broadcasters’ Associations, as well as the Kansas City Press Club and RTDNA’s Edward R. Murrow awards.

Most recently, Kath and the KSHB investigative team won a prestigious duPont Award for their continuing coverage of the deadly natural gas explosion on the Country Club Plaza.

Prior to Kansas City, Kath worked for two years at KTTC-TV in Rochester, MN.

Kath graduated from Minnesota’s Gustavus Adolphus College in 2002, earning a Bachelor’s degree. He is also a 2004 graduate of Boston University, where he received a Master’s degree in Broadcast Journalism. It is at BU where Kath met his wife.

The Kaths are proud parents of two young daughters, and also have a mischievous adopted mutt named Donald. Kath is an avid sports fan who, on the weekends, you’ll find chasing his misguided professional soccer aspirations.

Kath is thrilled about returning to Boston and looks forward to telling stories that uncover problems and create positive changes in the community.
