Just the Facts: Ryan Luby

• Position: Investigative Reporter

• Most Memorable Interview: The wife of a Brazilian national who agreed to do an on-camera interview to discuss the day she turned him in for murdering an entire family. • First Reporting Story: Fireworks safety
• Role Model/Most Admired: Peter Jennings. The man was so knowledgeable of just about everything.
• Why I'm A Journalist: This sounds cliché, but I work to expose public corruption and give voice to those who need it. I also value quality storytelling – good photography, good writing, good 'moments.'

• One thing my co-workers don’t know about me is… Why would I say? There's no sense in ruining a surprise.
