Born and raised in Central Iowa, Hannah Pickett is happy to stay in the Midwest and call Omaha home. Pickett has worked as a reporter in Omaha since early 2010 and joined KETV NewsWatch 7 in February of 2011.
Hannah is a 2010 graduate of Simpson College in Indianola, Iowa, where she majored in Journalism and Mass Communication. While at Simpson, Hannah interned and landed her first television reporting job at KCCI in Des Moines, KETV's sister station.
”I feel fortunate to have spent my whole professional career so close to home. Working with the great people of Nebraska and Iowa,” says Hannah.
Hannah has a passion for investigative and court reporting, but has a soft spot for human interest stories.
"I'm grateful and excited for the opportunity to tell stories that make an impact, stories that offer new perspective, stories that inspire, open your mind or make you think."
When she's not working, Hannah can be found spending time with her friends, her husband and their dogs -- Boston, a Maltese, and Cooper, a Doberman. She's involved with her church and enjoys working out, running, swimming, biking, and she recently joined CrossFit.
