Ryan Carlson


Sr. Systems Administrator

Ryan Carlson is WDET’s Sr. Systems Administrator. That means he loves technology but not in that weird stuck-in-the-basement kind of way. It started as a youth when he and his friends would take apart cars then put them back together for fun. This curiosity for how things worked not only fueled his passion for automobiles and driving, it made him the computer nerd he is today. A devoted family man and avid sportsman, Ryan spends the warmer months on the golf course and finds time to coach a high school tennis team. In the winter, he plays hockey and takes the kids sled riding. Ryan graduated from WSU in 2005 with a BS in Information Systems and Management and joined the WDET team in 2013.
