Hannah joined Eyewitness News in December of 2019. After less than a year working as the Weekend Anchor, she was promoted to produce and co-anchor Eyewitness News at 9 on Fox39.
Hailing from Wheaton, Hannah’s love for journalism was sparked in high school when she anchored the weekly Falcon Sports Minute. She went on to attend Illinois State University, and graduated with a degree in journalism and a minor in political science. During her senior year, Hannah was nominated for two Chicago/Midwest Emmy awards and took home a National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences scholarship.
While attending ISU, Hannah scored internships with a Fox Sports Radio affiliate and ABC NewsOne in Washington, D.C. During that time, Hannah interviewed lawmakers on Capitol Hill, entrepreneurs at the White House, military leaders at the Pentagon and MLB players at the 2018 All-Star Game.
Hannah started her reporting career at KOLR 10 in Springfield, MO. Her most memorable stories there were sit-down interviews with Missouri Governor Mike Parson and former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft.
Her career then brought Hannah back to Illinois. She says, “I am so thankful this journey has brought me back to my home state, and I can’t wait to share stories that make the Stateline so special!”
