Find out more about Hannah, one of our Breakfast Show producers...
Q: What's your name?
A: Hannah Murdoch
A: Birmingham, but now living in Coventry
Q: Star Sign?
Q: Joined the Beeb in?
A: April 2007
Q: What has your career involved so far?
A: I started out as a newspaper journalist and worked on daily papers in Shropshire and then right here in Coventry. Working at BBC Coventry and Warwickshire is my very first broadcasting job and I love it!
Q: What does your job involve?
A: It’s very varied - from reading the news or reporting live, to producing a programme or recording an interview. I recently ran a project called CovScape – looking at the big regeneration plans for Coventry, and nowadays I’m responsible for health stories, south east Coventry, and the city centre, so I’ve always got plenty going on!
Q: What do you like the most about BBC Coventry & Warwickshire?
A: Has to be the people - my colleagues are great to work with, I get to meet and report on some really interesting and inspiring people, and I love chatting to our listeners on the phone and in the open centre, they’re all so friendly!
Q: What's your favourite place in Coventry and Warwickshire?
A: Stratford. It’s amazing that we’ve got somewhere so culturally important right on our doorstep. I love watching plays at the RST and feeding the swans in the summer.
Q: Who's your favourite person?
A: I have lots of favourite people – definitely my parents and three or four best friends, but I couldn’t possibly choose one because I like them all for different reasons!
Q: What's your favourite hobby?
A: Shopping! I don’t normally like exercise but I’ll quite happily put in five miles around a city centre wearing stiletto heels and carrying my own bodyweight in bags…
Q: Your favourite food?
A: Spicy food of the Mexican or Indian variety… I also love pretty much any kind of cheese. Not very healthy I’m afraid!
Q: Your favourite drink?
A: Good red wine
Q: Favourite song?
A: I’m a huge fan of heavy metal so that’s hard to answer because nobody will know any of my favourites! Top non-weird song… maybe Paint it Black by the Rolling Stones? Although that’s still a little on the obscure side isn’t it?
Q: Favourite film?
A: City of God
Q: Give us a fascinating fact about yourself:
A: I was a member of a small circus troupe for a number of years and can ride a unicycle. Incidentally, my unicycle was made just down the road at Pashley’s…
