Ryan Patrick Muldowney (August 25, 1983 – present) is a former WSRU-TV television host. His television career began with the late-night talk show Gettin' Later, where he won two Awards for Outstanding Achievement in Communication from alma mater Slippery Rock University. Serving first as sidekick before ascending to host, Muldowney gained a cult following on the internet and in the Pittsburgh region, where the show aired. [ [http://media.www.theonlinerocket.com/media/storage/paper601/news/2004/03/05/Life/Lights.Camera.Action-627412.shtml Lights, camera, action - Life ] ] While hosting "Gettin' Later," Muldowney also acted as MC for local events. [http://academics.sru.edu/communication/prssa/receiver/Apr2005.pdf] [ [http://media.www.theonlinerocket.com/media/storage/paper601/news/2004/10/22/Entertainment/The-bell.Still.Rings-777388.shtml The 'Bell' Still Rings - Entertainment ] ] Muldowney currently lives in Hollywood, CA and works in production for E! True Hollywood Story while also heading a blog and YouTube channel that are gaining popularity.


Muldowney was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1983. A devout fan of broadcasting, Muldowney first pursued a career in radio, landing an internship at WRCT 88.3 during high school. Brief voiceover work and on-air scheduling followed, culminating in the semi-weekly Sunday morning roundtable "Wake Up!" featuring him as host. After graduating from Thomas Jefferson High School in 2001, Muldowney accepted undergraduate work at Slippery Rock University, eventually attaining a Bachelor's in Journalism.

Muldowney's passion for television was an outgrowth from his success with radio. "I'd done radio for three years and wanted to try something new," he said during an interview with Fox Sports personality Stan Savran. "Television was a natural evolution for my career." [http://gettinlater.com/videos/episodes/47.wmv] The interest in television was ignited by the failure of his web design consultancy as well as the broadcast facilities at Slippery Rock, which by and large sat unused. Muldowney partnered with fellow SRU students to use the equipment for a local television show; that effort led to "Gettin' Later," an award-winning late-night show. While Muldowney began as writer and sidekick, his role in the show grew to encompass the host duties, sketch writing, and video production.

During an interview with Rob Owen, TV critic for the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, Muldowney explained his love for television comedy. "It's the best use of the medium. Making people laugh is a huge part of the human experience." [http://gettinlater.com/videos/episodes/57.wmv]

Television career

Muldowney's first success came as an actor on the sitcom "6GUYSTALKING," before making his television debut in 2002. His career gained momentum after "Gettin' Later's" six seasons on the air, including his Penny Award-nominated performance in the skit, "The Dance." While working on Gettin' Later in 2003, Muldowney began a correspondence with television producer Mikey Glazer (Fear Factor), eventually leading to a position in the casting department of Telemundo's "Vas o No Vas" in Hollywood. [ [http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2430919/ Ryan P. Muldowney ] ] From there, Muldowney worked on E! Networks documentary series "Blvd. of Broken Dreams," the MTV reality show "Road Rules."
