Hannah Warren

Reporter/Editor

Hannah vividly remembers pulling up in the driveway with her mom as a child and sitting in the car as it idled with the radio on, listening to Ira Glass finish his thought on This American Life. When he reached a transition, it was a wild race out of the car and into the house to flip on the story again and keep listening.  Hannah’s love of radio reporting has stuck with her ever since. 

Hannah works full-time at Syracuse University, but spends evenings and weekends producing stories for the web at WAER and reporting on local news and events. Her bachelor’s degree is in magazine journalism from SU, and so is most of her journalism experience. She’s so glad she stayed in beautiful CNY to work in radio and develop her skills at WAER. She hopes to produce content that makes people pause in their cars and listen to the very end.

When she’s not on campus or at the radio station, Hannah is either reading the newest bestselling novel, searching for new indie rock and alternative music, reading up on new e-publishing deals and the latest new apps, or biking in area parks. She could also be trying her very best to play the guitar - any tips there would be greatly appreciated!
