Hi! I'm Hannah Storm. I'm an award-winning journalist, producer, director and author. I'm proud to be seen as a pioneer in the field of sports broadcasting for women.

I joined ESPN in 2008 where I'm the host of the show, SportsCenter’s Face to Face with Hannah Storm. It's a newsmaker interview-driven show that's weekdays at 10am ET and each NFL Sunday morning. 

I also host Face to Face interview specials which have aired on ESPN and ABC since 2012. Throughout my time at ESPN, I've had the chance to cover major news events such as the MLB visit to Cuba, the funeral of Muhammad Ali, the 2016 Olympics, the first Monday Night Football game ever to take place in Mexico, the Super Bowl, Wimbledon, the U.S. Open, the NBA Playoffs, the ESPYS, the NY Marathon, Veterans Day and the Rose Parade. 

Before ESPN, I covered sports for CNN and NBC Sports, and I was a host of CBS's The Early Show. 

Some fun facts about me are that I also run a production company called Brainstormin’ Productions, where I produce, executive produce and direct documentaries. I'm proud to say that several are award-winning films! I've received Emmy nominations, and was recently named one of AdWeek’s “30 Most Powerful Women in Sports,” as well as part of The Paley Center for Media’s prestigious “She Made It, Women Creating Television and Radio” Hall-of-Fame.

Now's your chance to ask me anything! Please write your questions in the comments section below and I'll answer the questions live on Tuesday, March 7th at 1:30pm ET.

    Such an honor to have you here! When you were first rising in the industry, how would you improve and practice as a host? Did you have any routines that you would go through each day, any tips for authentically increasing your charisma and charm? Thank you in advance!

      Great question---your charisma and charm as your own. the best advice i can give is to be confident enough to be yourself. that confidence comes from being really prepared and working hard. On air repetition is the best way to get experience. Lots of folks I know get their start in internships and also in radio.

      The industry, like the publishing and music industries, is changing rapidly. People are consuming sports, news and entertainment content is so many new ways...much of it mobile and personalized to their tastes. The traditional means of producing and delivering content are being challenged and expanded.

    How do you balance running a production company and being a journalist? Are there any projects you have in the works that you're excited about?

      Great question! I try to do one big project per year--roughly--and smaller projects like branded content series consistently. I pair each project with the people that I think best match our creative challenge. I have producers, directors of photography, editors all over the country and I literally build a team for each film, that I direct and oversee.

      There are two principles to interview...prepare and listen. the second part of the hardest for most people. your subject will take you in interesting directions if you let them...but you have to know your subject and background so well that you don't even need to look down at your questions---you can just listen and react.

      I think the Olympics are really special and also once in a lifetime events...such as a huge prize fight (Mayweather-Pac) or an historical event like the MLB trip to Cuba or Ali's funeral. Obiviously big championship series are amazing- the World Series, Superbowl and NBA Finals to name a few! Women are represented well in many areas of sports broadcasting both in front of the camera and behind it, but there is still room for growth in areas such as film director, big broadcast jobs, play by play and event analysts.

      I need to do more of that! I work out several times a week...mostly with a trainer who is a patient soul! I am also a voracious reader and plow through all kinds of books. and cook as much as possible. It a big creative outlet for me. Love to have friends and family over and cook for them--my favorite thing to do.

      I loved my job at CBS News because I was able to do so many different things like cover politics and music and entertainment and health. Breaking news, whether in news or sports, is one of my favorite things because you are really thinking on your feet. NBC Sports was incredible because I covered almost every event imaginable and it was in the heyday of the Jordan years in the NBA which was a lot of fun...plus I was able to host four Olympics. and CNN is where I really cut my teeth and most importantly. Met my husband Dan so that ranks very high!!

    Hi, Hannah. As a journalist navigating tricky stories -- controversy, blown victories, bad moments -- how do you walk the line between empathy AND getting the questions on everyone's lips answered? Does being a woman help -- or make it harder?
