Hannah Flood joined the NBC15 news team in January 2016 as a Multimedia Journalist. Originally from the Twin Cities, Hannah is excited to be in Madison. She grew up spending weekends at her family's cabin in northern Wisconsin, so she feels a special connection to the state. Before coming to NBC15, Hannah held internships for KARE11 News in Minneapolis, KSTP 5 Eyewitness News in St. Paul, and WDIO-TV in Duluth. She also gained experience working as an intern reporter at the Minnesota State Capitol in the spring of 2015. Hannah graduated from the University of Minnesota's School of Journalism and Mass Communication in December of 2015, and is a die-hard Minnesota sports fan.
The District Boards Association is proud and honored to present this award to Hannah Flood for her inspiring report.
