Ryan Miller came to Columbus from Allen Park, MI. He played football for The Ohio State University from 1993-1996, where he started at outside linebacker and helped the team capture a victory in the 1997 Rose Bowl. The two-time Iron-Man Award winner was also selected as the co-Defensive Player of the Year as a senior for the Buckeyes.
After graduating with an Economics degree from The Ohio State University, Ryan began a career in sports journalism with "Sports Radio 97.1 The Fan" (WBNS).
From 1997 to 2000, he co-hosted a morning drive talk show called Miller and Mark in the Morning. During that same time period, he teamed up with former Buckeye and NFL great Jim Lachey for the weekly Ohio Sports Insider program, which aired on the Ohio News Network.
Ryan then joined WBNS 10TV in September 2000 as a Sports Reporter. He took his passion for sports to the weekly magazine show, Wall to Wall Sports, as an anchor.
In 2002, Ryan won two Sports Emmys for Best Sports Reporter and Best Feature Story while getting accepted to graduate school at The Ohio State University.
In June, 2005, Ryan earned his Masters degree from the Fisher College of Business (OSU) and founded m2 marketing, LLC with former OSU Women’s Basketball Player Megan McCabe. M2 creates websites with a content management system and provides graphic design services.
Ryan is involved in many charities in central Ohio. He is the co-founder of The 2nd & 7 Foundation – whose mission is to “Tackle Illiteracy.” Miller and former Buckeye teammates Mike Vrabel and Luke Fickell started the foundation in 1999 and have read and donated over 300,000 books the past 20 years with help from The Ohio State University Department of Athletics and over 150 other Universities and High Schools throughout the country. In 2008, The 2nd & 7 Foundation began writing their own series of children’s books as their lead characters, The Hog Mollies, provide inspirational themes that children can take away while reading these fun books. Each year, The 2nd & 7 Foundation writes and publishes a new book. They currently released their new title for the 2019-20 school year – The Hog Mollies and the Little Lilly’s Legacy which provides a message about leadership.
