Ian Bush

Anchor, Reporter, & Editor, KYW Newsradio, CBS Radio News

Ian Bush is an anchor, reporter, and editor at KYW Newsradio in Philadelphia and a reporter for the CBS Radio News network. In 2008, he was named one of national radio’s ’30 Under 30′ by Edison Media Research. Now, sadly, he’s over 30. Bush is KYW’s technology editor, but his reporting is diverse: he was part of the Murrow Award-winning play-by-play team that broadcast the Philadelphia International Cycling Championship, and he was honored by the Associated Press for a series on young voters. Bush is a 2004 graduate of Villanova University. A proud Wildcat, he served as news director at the campus radio station, WXVU-FM, where his documentary ‘Voices of Reading’ earned the first AP award for station. He received his master’s degree in 2006 — and had the distinction of being the first to graduate in Villanova’s new master’s program in communication. He got his start in radio anchoring local news on WDIY-FM in Bethlehem, Pa., an NPR affiliate, while at Notre Dame High School (Green Pond) and in between two-a-days in the pool.
