Ricardo Lewis joined the KSFY News Team in November of 2018 as a multimedia journalist.
Ricardo was born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa. He is a 2018 graduate of Iowa State University where he studied journalism and mass communication with a minor in apparel, merchandising and design.
He was very active in Iowa State Athletics as a member of the ISU COED Cheerleading Team for four years. Cheerleading was and is still a huge passion of his.
Ricardo’s interest in journalism started his senior year of high school. He knew he liked telling stories, English was his best subject and he knew he wanted to be in front of the camera somehow.
He got his start after college with KCWI in West Des Moines, Iowa as the Associate Producer for CW Iowa Live. His dream job was always set on reporting so he took the time to learn the ends and outs of the business before making the move to Sioux Falls to work for KSFY.
In his free time he spends a lot of time watching TV, a lot of reality TV. He also spends time with his Australian Shepherd, Sonny. Now that he’s not focused on cheerleading 24/7 he’s trying to find new things to do.
He’s super excited to take on this new chapter in his life and is ready to tell interesting stories.
