Ryan Jenkins is a segment host on WQAD’s TV show Brewed which airs on Sunday’s at 10:35 after News 8 at Ten.
Jenkins is on the search for news as well! He can often be found out and about gathering local news throughout the Quad Cities area.
In 2017, he was on the ground in Washington D.C. for the inauguration of President Donald Trump and covered both the ceremony and the concurrent protests taking place there.
He also covered state funding of education during the state of Illinois budget battle in 2016.
A member of the Augustana College Class of 2018, Jenkins also serves as the co-editor-in-chief of the Augustana Observer newspaper. Jenkins first joined the WQAD family as a summer intern in 2016. It only took him 6 months following the end of his internship to find his way back to WQAD as an editor and segment host.
Passionate about finding and telling the stories that lie within the walls of breweries and pubs across Illinois and Iowa, Jenkins is on a mission to take Brewed beyond your TV screen and onto social media and the web as well.
