Christian Bryant

Supervising Editor - Publication

Christian Phillip Bryant is a multimedia journalist and renaissance man from Greensboro, N.C. He's a Southern gentlemen with a penchant for good music and great storytelling. Christian joined Newsy in 2011 and has been “falling with style” ever since. He excels in reporting headlining news, both foreign and domestic, but is adept at covering niche stories that fall into the crevices of public and personal interest. If given the opportunity, sit down with him and allow him to regale you with stories of his (mis)adventures. You won't regret it.
