Ryan Chiaverini
Ryan Chiaverini is co-host of ABC 7's popular talk and entertainment show, Windy City LIVE, which airs weekdays at 1 PM, Midnight and Sunday evenings at 11:30 PM.

Formerly the sports anchor for ABC 7's top-rated weekend newscasts, Chiaverini auditioned for Windy City LIVE and was chosen for the top co-host job from a field of several hundred candidates. His charm and ease as an interviewer were first noticed when he hosted ABC 7's Bears' pre-game show, THE CHICAGO HUDDLE. Ryan's quick wit, work ethic and reputation as someone you can't help but like, made him the perfect choice for ABC 7's new local show. Ryan's trademark "2-Minute Warning" segments, featuring entertainment and sports celebrities answering fun trivia questions, has become a Windy City LIVE favorite.

Chiaverini has interviewed some of the biggest names in entertainment, sports and music including Will Ferrell, Jimmy Kimmel, Jane Lynch, Bonnie Hunt, Mike Tyson, Chance the Rapper, Barry Manilow, Patrick Kane, Kerry Woods and Joe Maddon.

Prior to Windy City LIVE, Chiaverini joined Chicago's Number One sports team as sports reporter/fill-in anchor in March, 2006 was promoted to sports anchor on the station's weekend newscasts.

Chiaverini's passion for sports runs deep in his bloodline. His father, Eddie, was a stand-out hockey player and was a member of the Sr. Los Angeles Kings. His uncle, Tony Chiaverini, fought Sugar Ray Leonard in a nationally televised super welter weight bout at Caesars Palace in 1979. Ryan's younger twin brother (by eight minutes) went on to play professional football in the NFL for the Browns, Cowboys and Falcons and now coaches football at UCLA.

Chiaverini attended college at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where he majored in Broadcast/Journalism and played strong safety for the Buffalo football team. One of Ryan's fondest memories is being able to play football with his twin in both high school and college.

A native of Corona, California, Chiaverini's hobbies include playing hockey and guitar.
