Ross Field has a tremendous passion for sports. As a matter of fact, the very first word uttered out of his young mouth happened to be "ball".
Growing up, whether it was a football, a basketball, a baseball, a soccer ball, or even a wiffle ball, if you were looking for Ross, you'd find him outside playing sports with other kids in the neighborhood. When people asked him what he wanted to do when he grew up, he said he wanted to be a sports broadcaster.
Ross attended Analy High School in the North Bay Area where he enjoyed success as a basketball and baseball player. As a junior, he played second base for a Northern Section championship team whose success garnered them a second place ranking in the state! As a senior, he earned All-Sonoma County League honors as a point guard on a squad that ascended all the way to the North Coast Section semi-finals.
After high school, Ross moved to Chico to pursue an education at Chico State. During college, his favorite classes included Studio Video Production and Field Video Production where he received a hands-on opportunity to enhance his knowledge of the television industry. In 2006 he graduated with a B.A. in Communication Design with an emphasis in Media Arts.
Ross accepted a job with KHSL/KNVN as a production assistant in August of 2006. When a spot opened up in the sports department, Ross began living out his dream by reporting and anchoring. Ross brings a relentless enthusiasm for sports coverage to his job.
So far, his most memorable moments consist of reporting on local high school, college and professional teams and athletes, attending 49ers and Raiders training camps, and providing in-depth coverage of Chico native and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and his climb to stardom in the NFL. Ross enjoys living in the northern part of the state.
Some of his hobbies include hanging out with family and friends, traveling, barbecuing and of course, watching, playing and reporting sports. If you know of any sports story ideas, please send them to RField@ActionNewsNow.com
