Barrett Tryon joined the FOX 4 News team in December 2012. You can see him weeknights on FOX 4 News at 9 and 10.
He began his broadcasting career in the early 80s, although not many people saw those first newscasts live from his parents' back porch in Sarasota, Fla.
Fast forward a few years, and Barrett attended college at Drake University in Des Moines, while also working for KCCI-TV. He would later work at CBS News and Fox News Channel, both in New York City, a brief stint in Los Angeles chasing around celebrities, followed by a few years in the Rockies at KRDO-TV in Colorado Springs.
He was lucky enough to win an Emmy for "Best Newscast" and was voted "Best Twitterer" for 3 years in a row in Colorado Springs by readers of the Colorado Springs Independent and Colorado Springs Gazette. Luckily, he found a job in TV news that pays him to tweet.
He's interested in your story ideas, especially if it involves trending stories, tech or if you've got breaking news to share. Send him a tweet (by using the link below his photo.)
When he's not online, which is never, he's probably chasing around his two pups, Cooper & Bentley, googling "Barrett Tryon" or combing his hair.
