Ryan Bloom is a Hero

Ryan Bloom is a Hero

Hey Mon, Ryan Bloom be a Hero Now Don't Cha Know.

Hey Mon, Ryan Bloom be a Hero Now Don’t Cha Know.

Today marks the exact one-year anniversary of Ryan Bloom’s debut here at Gaming Illustrated. He quickly ascended from reviewer to Associate Editor thanks to his technical proficiency and hardcore dedication. Over the last year, Ryan’s work has been absolutely phenomenal and frankly, an inspiration not just to myself but for the whole team.

If you don’t know Ryan all that well, let me tell you, he’s a great guy. I remember the first time we met, we had a burger over at The Counter and clicked right away. He’s very personable, sharp and insightful. On top of that, Ryan’s a great guy too. With his background (he actually has a prestigious education in journalism) and passion for the industry, I knew right away that Ryan was a perfect fit to be an Associate Editor, and that decision was literally the best one I made for Gaming Illustrated in the last five years.

It’s been a pleasure and frankly, an honor to have Ryan within the stable of Gaming Illustrated writers and I know his future his supernova-bright. His constant grinding getting news up just about every single day has saved our collective asses more than once. A year ago, I had the goal to “never break the chain” to make sure the site was updated once a day, minimum. It was my most important goal and without Ryan’s constant help and dedication, it never would have happened. For that, he has my eternal gratitude.

Ryan Bloom has been the foundation and rock for Gaming Illustrated and our team to lean on over the last year. He’s a hero because he comes in day in and day out to bring the goods every single day. Without Ryan, this site would be nowhere near as amazing as it has been over the last year and for that, I wanted to say thank you to him. I’m thrilled he’s going to be going to E3 and interact with this industry because I know one day he’s going to be a star and this is just the start of something huge for him.

Ryan Bloom is a hero. And Dikembe Mutombo is not dead, but only because THE Ryan Bloom said so.

    Thanks for all the hard work Ryan.

    It has been an honor to work with the Ryan Bloom this past year. Without his dedication and background in news, our news coverage would be no where near as sterling as it is now. He has helped me channel my own style to fit the news format and for that I am eternally grateful. He is an amazing person who will eventually break Charles Barkley’s ankle in some weird cosmic karma. Gaming Illustrated is richer because of his and Ben’s involvement as Associate Editors. E3 here we come.

    I came for the image. Stayed for the story. Thanks for all the hard work, Ryan!

  • Ben Sheene

    the man, the myth, the legend, THE Ryan Bloom. He should have hosted Nick News instead of Linda Ellerbee
