Hi there! I’m Hannah, and I joined the Paisley FM gang earlier this year. Born and bred in sunny Glasgow, I moved to Durham in 2016 and was based there for three years. After finishing my degree there, I missed my hometown *plays Caledonia by Dougie Maclean* and returned to Glasgow in 2019 to venture into a career in journalism. When I’m not at my computer writing or recording, I love going on runs and reading, preferably mythological epics!
How did you get into broadcasting?
Norman the director, really encouraged and motivated me to get into presenting – something I never really thought of before. I’ve always loved a good gossip and a chat but never realised I could do that as a career. The folk at Paisley FM are also super friendly and lovely so it’s a great environment to find your feet!
Random encounter with any celebrity?
Billy Connolly smiled at me when I was working in a bookshop in town! I like to believe he did anyway…plus, he delivered a box of cheese to thank us for selling loads of his biographies. The coolest man ever.
I love anything that gets me dancing! The 80s and 90s have always been a major part of my musicalinspo, but I don’t mind venturing out as long as it’s got a good rhythm… a strong drumbeat is the way to my heart. Also, oddly love a bit of bubblegumpop..?
Any surprising facts your listeners may not know about you?
I’m sort of fluent in Ancient Greek and Latin!
