April 11, 1962
Between 1996 and 2003, Hanrahan was an anchor at WABC-TV in New York City. He joined the station as a co-anchor for its morning and midday Eyewitness News broadcast, where he worked alongside Nancy Loo. By the end of 1997, Hanrahan had been promoted to replace Greg Hurst as Roz Abrams' co-anchor on WABC's 5:00 pm newscast and stayed there for the next several years. During this time, he was part of a second overhaul of the morning newscast; he and Lori Stokes were named to replace Loo and David Ushery as morning anchors, although Hanrahan did not participate in the noon newscast this time. Toward the end of his time at WABC, the station was undergoing another shakeup in its lineups and he was replaced by Diana Williams on the early evening newscasts. Hanrahan moved to anchoring solely on weekends until his contract expired.
Hanrahan is married to his wife Stacey.
