Hannah Trippett was born in Houston and grew up in Sugar Land.

After graduating from Fort Bend Baptist Academy, she went on to attend the University of Texas at Austin where she earned a bachelor’s degree in journalism.

Hannah started her professional career as a sports reporter in Dothan, Alabama. Doing her time there, she covered some of the best college football in the country for a couple of years.

The Fox/NBC affiliate in San Antonio was the next stop on her journey. She had the experience of a lifetime there getting to cover all seven games of the 2017 World Series as her beloved Astros won the title. She also covered the Cowboys and, of course, the Spurs.

Sports have always been a huge passion of Hannah’s but she decided it was time to move back home after a couple of years in San Antonio. Now she is excited to get started covering her hometown and getting to work in front of her family and friends.
