Meet Hannah Murdoch

Find out more about Hannah, one of our Breakfast Show producers...

Q:  What's your name?

A:  Hannah Murdoch

Q:  From?

A:  Birmingham, but now living in Coventry

Q:  Star Sign?

A:  Taurus

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…
