Ryan Lefebvre is in his 20th season as a Royals broadcaster on Fox Sports Kansas City and the Royals Radio Network.  A 2016 Mid-America Emmy Award winner, Lefebvre will be in his 24th season on a Major League broadcast team this year.

 Before joining the Royals prior to the 1999 season, Lefebvre spent four seasons as a broadcaster for the Minnesota Twins on WCCO Radio, WCCO TV and Midwest Sports Channel. He was hired full-time at the age of 24, one year after graduating from the college.  He also broadcast University of Minnesota football, hockey and volleyball for WCCO and MSC.

The Los Angeles native graduated from Loyola High School in 1989 and began his broadcasting career as a freshman at the University of Minnesota at KUOM radio. He graduated from the University of Minnesota in 1994 where he was a First Team All-Big Ten selection in 1993 and established school records for hits, triples and at-bats. He was selected in the 27th round of the 1993 First-Year Player Draft by the Cleveland Indians.

Lefebvre is the son of former big league player and manager, Jim Lefebvre. Actively involved in a number of Kansas City community activities, Lefebvre is the founder of Gloves For Kids and the Footprints Foundation, which raises money for youth programs in Kansas and Missouri. In 2011, Lefebvre was the recipient of the John J. “Buck” O’Neil MVP Award for his commitment to youth in Kansas City.  He was also named the 2006 Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City Role Model of the Year, while in 2008 the Staples store in Zona Rosa (Kansas City) was dedicated in his honor for his “Philanthropic Spirit.”

In 2015, Lefebvre was also named the recipient of the Johnson County NAACP Diversity in Sports Award. He was also named one of the “25 Most Influential People” in the state of Kansas in 2014.
