Meet the B101 Morning Show:
Jenn Ryan on life at B101:
My dreams have finally come true! Not only am I married to my best friend who I met at Penn State when we were only 18 years old… not only am I “Mom” to the 3 greatest kids in the world (yes, I’m biased!)… but I’m now working at B101 – a station that I am truly proud to be a part of and the one that I consider to be the pinnacle of my broadcasting career. I am so fortunate to spend the day with the best listeners in all of Philadelphia (I know we’re going to be great friends) and still meet my kids at their bus stop when school is over. My family at home and my family at the Bee are so very important to me. Life is good!

I feel really lucky to have been invited into the B101 family!

I’m a lifelong Philadelphian who had a high school dream in the C.B. West hallways: to one day conquer morning radio. Fast forward to now, and I pinch myself that I actually get to do that every day, work with the nicest people ever and it’s at the legendary B101! Luck isn’t usually on my side, but it is here!
