Robb Hanrahan (born April 11, 1962)[1] is an American television journalist who currently works as a newscaster for WHP-TV, the CBS affiliate in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

Career[edit]

Prior to joining WHP, he had spent time at WFOR-TV, a CBS owned-and-operated station in Miami, Florida, where he co-anchored newscasts alongside Maggie Rodriguez for four years.

Between 1996 and 2003, Hanrahan was an anchor at WABC-TV in New York City.[2][3] 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 was at WSVN-TV in Miami before joining WABC.[4] Before Miami, he worked at Harrisburg's WHTM-TV, and started his news career at KODE-TV in Joplin, Missouri.

Personal life[edit]

Hanrahan is married to his wife Stacey.

He is a licensed mariner who holds a United States Coast Guard fifty-ton Master/Mate (captain's) License.[citation needed]
