Hannah Kliger is reporter and producer at News 12 Brooklyn and the Bronx, and she loves her job! Some days she one-woman-bands her way around her favorite city in the world, and other days she writes and puts together newscasts featuring hyperlocal, citywide, national, and international stories.
She is a former Associate Producer for NYC-TV at the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment.
In the summer of 2015, Hannah graduated, cum laude, from New York University with a double major in Broadcast Journalism and Political Science.
Hannah decided to pursue a career in the news while she attended Edward R. Murrow High School in Brooklyn, where she took various broadcasting classes and wrote for her school’s publications. From Hurricane Sandy, to opening day in Coney Island, Hannah knew she belonged in the news industry because of her urge to always be at the scene and on the beat.
She is bilingual in Russian and English, and proficient in Italian. She has explored a wide variety of media professions, having interned at local, cable, and network television news. She was also an on-air intern for a morning radio show, and a contributor to her school paper. Her most recent internship prior to graduation was at 60 Minutes.
When she is not watching, reading, studying, or presenting the news, Hannah likes to explore hidden gems in upstate New York, play the guitar, and spend time with her bunny, Lola.
