Barrett Tryon helps mid-Michigan get the day started as co-anchor of News 10 Today.

Before moving to mornings, he co-anchored and launched News 10 at 5:30 in the fall of 2018. He began at News 10 as the weekend anchor in July 2018.

Prior to coming to News 10, Barrett was the morning anchor for KECI-TV in western Montana.

He began his broadcasting career in the early 80s, although not many people saw those first newscasts live from his parents’ back porch in Sarasota, Fla.

Barrett attended college at Drake University in Des Moines, while also working for KCCI-TV. He would later work at CBS News and Fox News Channel, both in New York City, a brief stint in Los Angeles chasing around celebrities, followed by a few years in the Rockies at KRDO-TV in Colorado Springs.

He also worked at WDAF-TV in Kansas City as a technology reporter, KLAS-TV in Las Vegas, and a second stint in Colorado Springs for KKTV-TV.

He was lucky enough to win an Emmy for “Best Newscast” and was voted “Best Twitterer” for 3 years in a row in Colorado Springs by readers of two separate newspapers.

When he’s not online, which is never, he’s probably chasing around his rescue pup, Cooper, googling “Barrett Tryon,” or combing his hair.

Feel free to email him at barrett.tryon@wilx.com with any questions or story ideas. If you're a fan of dad jokes and bad puns, make sure you follow him on Facebook, too.
