Who is Hannah Storm?
Hannah Lynn Storen Hicks, perhaps known better by her professional name Hannah Storm, was born in Oak Park, Illinois USA on 13 June 1962 – her zodiac sign is Gemini, and she holds American nationality. She’s a TV sports journalist, who’s probably known best for the work which she has done for the American international basic cable sports channel ESPN, especially for anchoring their news show “SportsCenter Face to Face”.
Early life and education
Hannah was raised in Oak Park by her mother Hannah G. Storen who was a real estate broker, and her father Mike Storen who was a sports executive, and perhaps still remains remembered for having worked as a commissioner for the American Basketball Association, and general manager of the basketball teams Memphis Sounds, Kentucky Colonels and Indiana Pacers; Mike passed away on 7 May 2020, aged 84.
Hannah grew up admiring her father, and it was how she became interested in sports at a very early age. She studied at The Westminster School in Atlanta, Georgia, and played tennis and soccer during her four years there, while she also enjoyed writing articles about sports for the school newspaper.
Upon matriculating in 1980, Hannah enrolled at University of Notre Dame, Indiana, from which she graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in 1983.
In the first half of the ‘80s, Hannah found herself working as a disc jockey at the NBC-affiliated TV station WNDU-TV in South Bend, Indiana.
Upon graduating from college, she worked at the radio station KNCN as their disc jockey, and was in 1984 invited to join the adult contemporary radio station KHMX, a job for which she had to move to Houston, Texas, for which she served as their traffic reporter and drive-time sportscaster. She went on to spend four years at KHMX and did various jobs at the station, such as hosting their Houston Rockets postgame and half-time shows.
In 1988 and 1989, Hannah worked at the TV station WCNC as their weekend sports anchor, a job for which she had to move to Charlotte, North Carolina, and she was then invited to join CNN.
Between 1989 and 1992, Hannah hosted the TV news show “CNN Sports Tonight”, and could’ve been seen covering the Daytona 500 NASCAR Cup Series race, Major League Baseball (MLB) spring training, as well as the play-offs. Hannah also hosted the shows “1990 Goodwill Games”, and “Major League Baseball Preview”.
In May 1992, she was invited to join NBC and thus left CNN. Hannah then hosted several shows, covering National Basketball Association (NBA) and Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA), Olympic Games, National Football League (NFL), and MLB. Between 1994 and 2000, she solo hosted MLB games for NBC, becoming the first woman in the history of American TV to do so. Between 1997 and 2002, Hannah hosted the show “The NBA on NBC”, and could also had been seen covering French Open and Wimbledon tennis championships, World Figure Skating Championships and golf, amongst other sports.
In October 2002, Hannah moved to CBS News, and began co-hosting their popular “The Early Show”.
This time, aside from covering only sports, Hannah got to cover various important events, such as Hurricane Katrina, the Iraq War and both the 2004 and 2008 presidential elections. She had an opportunity to interview many politicians, including the former US Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, as well as Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Senator John McCain. Hannah could also had been seen interviewing many music and film stars, such as Jamie Foxx, Paul McCartney and Elton John.
During her time at CBS, Hannah also hosted their shows “48 Hours” and “CBS Thanksgiving Day Parade”, before revealing in November 2007 that she was leaving the network.
Hannah joined ESPN on 10 May 2008, and began anchoring their show “SportsCenter”. She has since been focused on providing sports highlights and interviewing sports analysts, and since August 2009, Hannah has also been covering tennis events, including Wimbledon and the US Open tennis. Starting on 3 April 2010, Hannah began hosting the show “ESPN Sports Saturday”, and then became the host of the show “NBA Countdown”, covering the 2010-2011 NBA Season.
Hannah’s still today working for ESPN, and had a short stint with Amazon Prime in 2018, when she and Andrea Kremer called an NFL game on “Thursday Night Football”.

Husband and children
Hannah dislikes sharing the details of her love life with the public, but has still allowed her fans to have a glimpse into it. She married the American sportscaster John Daniel Hicks on 8 January 1994, in a private ceremony attended by only the closest of their friends and family members; Dan has been working for NBC Sports since 1992, mostly focused on providing play-by-play commentary on golf. In the 10 years following their wedding, Hannah gave birth to their daughters Hannah, Ellery and Riley Hicks, and the family of five today lives in Greenwich, Connecticut.
Hannah hasn’t mentioned any other men whom she has perhaps been with, and as of March 2022, she’s married to John Hicks, and they have three daughters together.
Hobbies and interesting facts
On 11 December 2012, Hannah accidentally burned herself in a propane gas grill accident while at home, suffering second-degree burns on her hands and chest, and first-degree burns on her face and neck, and burned her eyelashes, eyebrows and nearly her entire hair. It was one of her daughters who called an ambulance. Hannah returned to hosting shows less than a month later, wearing bandages on her hands and sporting hair extensions.
She was born with a birthmark under her left eye, called a port-wine stain, and has mostly because of this launched her Hannah Storm Foundation, which helps pay treatment for children suffering from similar birthmarks. Hannah has also worked with various non-profit organizations, such as Partnership for a Drug-Free America and March of Dimes.
She has written articles for various magazines, including “Family Circle”, “Notre Dame Magazine” and “Cosmopolitan”.
Hannah likes to watch movies in her spare time, and her favorite actor and actress are Woody Allen and Rosario Dawson, while a couple of her favorite films include “Annie Hall”, “Crimes and Misdemeanors” and “Seven Pounds”.

Hannah’s age is 59. She has long brown hair and brown eyes, her height is 5ft 9ins (1.8m) and she weighs around 155lbs (70kgs).
As of March 2022, her net worth has been estimated at more than $4 million.
