Ian Bush

Ian Bush is an anchor, reporter, news editor, and technology editor at KYW Newsradio. A versatile broadcaster, he is the recipient of two Edward R. Murrow awards for Sports Reporting (including in 2016 for his coverage of Villanova's national championship). 

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, and stil serves as one of the voices of Villanova’s Men’s Basketball team. He earned his master’s degree from Villanova in 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, an NPR affiliate in Bethlehem, PA, 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. Fast favorites became Yankees baseball broadcasts, the late David Brudnoy, and Art Bell. 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, 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 wishes he was still an avid swimmer (some of his backstroke records still stand at YMCAs and high school pools in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, but that was a long time ago). He coached several Penn-Jersey League championship teams and US Swimming Nationals qualifiers.
