A Little About Ryan Bass


Prior to joining Otter PR as the firm’s Media Director, Ryan spent five years as the main anchor for CBS news and sports coverage in the Tampa Bay area. He has also served as a host for CBS Sports. From Super Bowls to Presidential Elections, you name it — he’s covered it! 

Along with his experience in TV broadcasting, Ryan has also worked in radio, hosted podcasts, and was a beat writer in both print and digital publications, running through the gauntlet of the media industry. He prides himself on his ability to help clients tell their stories and coach them to become media rockstars, including teaching them how to nail their next interview on any platform. Ryan’s strong background in relationships and networking, and his passion for connecting with people, make him the perfect fit as the Media Director of the Raft here at Otter PR.

Favorite Client types:

Ryan loves to work with ambitious people and thought leaders across all industries who have a go-getter mentality. If a client is ambitious and has a strong story to tell, he will help refine and convey it to his network of media partners.

Otter Things to Know:

When Ryan’s not at work, you can find him cheering on his alma mater, the UCF Knights — “Charge On, baby!” He also loves spending time in Nashville, his second home, and spending quality time with friends and family.

Are you a good fit?

The amount of publicity they have generated for has been nothing short of impressive. It has dramatically increased new clients by 30% and I have seen my platforms grow 2-fold
