Ian BushIan Bush is an anchor, reporter, news editor, and technology editor at KYW Newsradio.

Bush joined the airstaff in August 2005 after serving as a desk/production assistant since October 2002. In 2008, he was named one of national radio’s ’30 Under 30′ by Edison Media Research.

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 (Pa.)’ earned the first Associated Press award for station. At WXVU, he was host and managing editor of ’20/20 Hindsight’ and ‘Villanova’s Afternoon News’, for which he won Villanova’s Outstanding Service Award. Bush is also the voice of Villanova Athletics and Villanova’s Men’s Basketball team.

Bush also holds a certificate in strategic communication from Villanova. He earned his master’s degree in May 2006 — and had the distinction of being the first to graduate in the school’s new master’s program in communication.

He got his start in radio anchoring local news as afternoon program host on WDIY-FM in Bethlehem, Pa., an NPR affiliate, while at Notre Dame High School (Green Pond) and as an undergraduate at Villanova.

But the radio bug bit early: Bush recalls defying his parents’ go-to-bed orders by sneaking an AM radio under his pillow. He tried to find something new to listen to every night, but quickly developed favorites, like Yankees baseball broadcasts, the late David Brudnoy, Art Bell, and (of course) CBS Radio’s all-news stations.

An only child, Bush attempted to amuse himself by broadcasting political news on a karaoke machine to the Lego town that took up most of the basement. In grammar school and prep school, he’d try to spice up afternoon PA announcements with time checks and weather updates — ‘I’m surprised the kids didn’t beat me up,’ Bush says.

Bush is an avid — and decorated — swimmer. In 1995, he swam one of the Top 16 times in the nation as runner-up in the Pa. State Swimming Championships. He is a five-time Pa. District XI medalist; some of his backstroke records still stand at YMCAs and high school pools in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. He coached several Penn-Jersey League championship teams and US Swimming Nationals qualifiers.
