Daryl Ruiter’s professional career began in 1997 as an intern with WJW Fox-8 television and WTAM 1100-AM in Cleveland.
Over the past 17 years, Ruiter has covered major sporting events including the Cleveland Browns, Indians, Cavaliers, American League Division Series, American League Championship Series, NBA Playoffs, NBA Finals, NFL Scouting Combine, NCAA Men’s basketball tournament and the NCAA Women’s Final Four.
Ruiter joined WKRK-FM Sports Radio 92.3 The Fan in Aug. 2011 as the station’s Browns beat reporter and web editor. In 2012, Ruiter was accepted as a member of the Professional Football Writers of America.
Ruiter, who grew up in northeast Ohio, spent 12 years with Metro Networks as a sports anchor and reporter. Ruiter also worked for WKNR where he served in a variety of capacities including as the Browns beat reporter, update anchor and a producer.
Ruiter departed WKNR in September of 2010 for the Digital Sports Network, which was partnered with Cleveland.com, where he assumed the role of assistant program director, show host and reporter before joining 92.3 The Fan.
In addition to a stint with MLB.com Radio during the 2006 and 2007 seasons as an AL Central Division correspondent, Ruiter also does free-lance field reporting work for NFL Radio on Sirius/XM.
Ruiter’s hobbies include movie and bobble head collecting, model building and train watching. Daryl lives in and maintains a home in Cleveland, Ohio.
Saddled with the ninth toughest schedule in the league this season, no one has the Browns finishing anywhere but in the basement of the AFC North in 2015.
Browns head coach Mike Pettine put to rest any notion of a power struggle behind the scenes between him and general manager Ray Farmer on Monday.
Rookies reported to Berea last week, veterans report by Wednesday (although some have already reported) and training camp officially kicks off Thursday morning at 9:30 a.m.
LeBron James was surprised to take home 1 ESPY Award, arguably should have won at least one other and was involved in one of the most emotional presentations of the night.
The NFL also rolled out key dates for the upcoming season as well as 2016 offseason on Wednesday. Here’s a look at a few of the important ones.
James appeared on the show to promote his major motion picture debut in “Trainwreck” starring Amy Schumer and Bill Hader, which premiered Tuesday night in New York.
James, the ultimate salesman, also used the trip to Swensons to cultivate his next acting opportunity – a “Trainwreck” sequel.
While the core of the Cavs remains in tact, albeit rather expensively, James made it clear he’s not satisfied.
Friday night James brought the glitz and glam of Tinseltown to his hometown of Akron, Ohio for the premiere of “Trainwreck,” a romantic comedy starring James along with comedian Amy Schumer, Bill Hader and Cleveland-area native Vanessa Bayer.
Like he did last summer, James signed another short 2-year contract that includes a player option for the second year in an effort to maximize his income potential as a max player under the expanding salary cap.
