erin hassanzadehI’m a connector and communicator who has worked in the bustling metropolis Seoul, South Korea as well as in the blistering cornfields of Iowa, engaging with local communities to promote the flow of knowledge and cross-cultural communications.

I currently work as the breaking news desk anchor for KETV. I cover the latest breaking national, international, and local news for the market’s dominant morning show.

My strong sense of curiosity led me to pursue journalism and sociology in college. Asking questions and finding answers became my passion and my strength. That passion led me straight to a news reporting job at central Iowa’s leading station during my final year at Drake University. As a reporter at KCCI, I found answers to complicated questions that impacted tens of thousands of viewers across central Iowa. My determination to keep answering tough questions led me to the Fulbright program where I worked tirelessly for two years in South Korea building relationships and forming connections as a teacher and a representative of the United States.

I am interested in working for news organizations, globally minded companies, and media outlets that connect and contribute to the communities they serve.
