Tony Hanson has spent his entire illustrious career at KYW Newsradio, covering breaking news including the World Trade Center attacks, the 1985 Move siege, the air crash death of US Sen. John Heinz, the Republican National Convention and related protests in 2000, as well as every aspect of the judicial system.
And he has earned many awards along the way.
Hanson won a Sigma Delta Chi national award for his coverage of the Move event. He’s won numerous awards from the Philadelphia Bar Association, the Pennsylvania Bar Association, and the New Jersey Bar Association for his reports on topics such as prison overcrowding, the death penalty, and child abuse.
In 1983, Tony received the prestigious William A. Schnader Memorial Award. He’s also received a Freedoms Foundation certificate of excellence, a UPI statewide first place award for sports coverage of Villanova University, and the New York Grand Award at the 1982 International Radio Festival with Larry Litwin for “Schools Strike Out.”
Hanson joined KYW as a desk assistant after graduating with a degree in communications from Temple University. He was soon promoted to writer correlator, and shortly thereafter to reporter.
Tony is a graduate of West Catholic High School in Philadelphia. He and his wife Martha have two daughters.

Jury deliberations resume today in the murder trial of abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell, who is charged with five counts of murder and a long list of other charges.
The jury will be considering hundreds of counts, led by five counts of murder (four babies allegedly born alive during abortions and one woman who died during an abortion).
The defense attorney for abortion Doctor Kermit Gosnell has told the jury during closing arguments there was a rush to judgment to convict the “House of Horrors” doctor.
Kenneth Enriquez-Santiago was sentenced to 2-5 years in prison, and co-defendant Steven Ferguson, who delivered the fatal blow to Kevin Kless, has been sentenced to 5-10 years in prison.
Attorneys for the two remaining defendants in the beating death of 23-year-old Kevin Kless in Old City early last year say guilty pleas are expected today.
Closing arguments are scheduled for Monday, followed by jury deliberations.
