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.
