Connect With Hannah Olsen

Hannah Olsen joined KATU in 2013. She's a Northwest native who's been fortunate to report all over Oregon.

Hannah started her broadcast career as the Coos Bay Bureau Director for KMTR. After spending some time reporting on the coast, she moved up to cover the Eugene area for the same station.

A die-hard Duck, Hannah graduated from the School of Journalism and Communication at the University of Oregon. She also earned a bachelor's degree in French, and attended the Robert D. Clark Honors College.

These days, Hannah wakes up very early to work on KATU News This Morning. You'll see her tracking the biggest social media stories of the day in her Trends 2 Watch segment, and sometimes taking fun field trips to cover events around the metro area.

Hannah and her husband are the proud parents of a French bulldog named Henderson.
