I'm Hannah McIlree, your neighborhood reporter in Mason, Leslie, Holt, and Delhi Township.
I’m a lover of the outdoors, dog mom and neighborhood reporter. At FOX 47 I cover the Mason, Leslie, Holt and Delhi Charter Township neighborhoods.
When I am not sharing stories from my neighborhoods, you can find me at Burchfield Park floating down Grand River or enjoying a grilled cheese at Cross Roads Bar and Grill.
Now, let’s jump into a time machine. I was born and raised in the Midwest. My favorite things to do growing up was to ask my parents a million questions and writing short stories. Two things I still do every day, but sub in community members for my parents. I’m a proud alumna of Ball State University where I pursued a degree in Journalism and Media News, as well as a minor in Sports Studies.
After graduating Ball State, I worked for the Single-A affiliate in the Atlanta Braves organization. There my duties were to manage the press box, social media and video production. I made the jump from Georgia to Michigan in October 2022, to pursue a career in broadcast journalism.
My passion is to share impactful, positive and creative stories that come out of my neighborhoods and to create long-lasting connections in the community. I also have a passion for social media. I enjoy using it as a tool to shine a brighter light on Mason, Leslie, Holt and Delhi Charter Township.
