Ryan began writing for the Boston Globe in 1969 as their Celtics beat writer. He remained there until 1982 when he left to pursue an interest at WCVB.

Since retiring from the Globe he has been a regular radio and television guest as well as writing a book. Ryan has been described as a basketball guru and according to Bill Simmons of ESPN, is “the best basketball writer ever.” He is a member of both the New England Basketball Hall of Fame and the College Basketball Writers Hall of Fame.
He currently lives in Hingham, Massachusetts with his wife, Ellaine of 38 years. Ryan has two children and triplet grandchildren. Ryan regularly gives back to the community through humanitarian fundraisers to benefit inner-city teenagers with their education.

The follow-up and support from the sales agent and logistics manager were excellent. We will no doubt be in touch next year.
