Ryan is currently a junior broadcast journalism major in the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. He was the executive producer of CitrusTV’s pregame show “‘Cuse Countdown” for a year before taking on the sports director role at CitrusTV, Syracuse University’s entirely student-run TV studio. He took some time recently to talk to us about SU sports as well as tell us a little more about CitrusTV.
Last season, as a sophomore, Joseph started to live up to the potential others saw, averaging nearly 11 points a game, third-best on the team.
