Ryan Wismer began his career at PHL17 as an intern from Ithaca College in 2010. After a brief stint on the PHL17 Events Team, Ryan began working in the Creative Services department. Ryan, known to his Creative Services cronies as, "It Started with a Wismer" (from the popular Neon Trees song title), has been invaluable ever since.
Ryan produces features and promos for both the web and television, shooting and editing stills and video. He also chips in on the station social media efforts and has been "this close" to being in a station promo or two.
