Meet Elisa Hahn

For more than 20 years, I’ve had the pleasure of reporting on many of the top stories in our region. I cover the Seattle Police Department, crime, education, and the Affordable Care Act, and enjoy telling the personal stories of the people impacted by those issues.

I was honored to receive an Emmy for breaking news for Seattle’s Greenwood explosion and the award for Best Reporter by the Martin Luther King County Labor Council.

Born in Korea, I grew up in Ohio and the San Francisco Bay Area, where I attended University of California, Davis for my undergraduate degree and San Francisco State University for a Master's degree in Broadcast Communication Arts. I got my start as a cub reporter in Fresno, California and Las Vegas, Nevada.

Now I’m a proud West Seattleite. You'll often see me running along Alki, trying to keep up with my husband and our dog, or sitting in the rain at my son’s soccer game.

If you have a story idea, email me at ehahn@king5.com or on Twitter @ElisaHahnK5. Sometimes you’ll find me on Facebook. (Send me your good restaurant tips too!)
