Robert John Hanrahan was a journalist for American television who had previously reported for Harrisburg, Pennsylvania’s WHP-TV, a CBS affiliate. He was born on April 11, 1962, and passed away at the age of 60 on July 3, 2022.
He had previously worked at WFOR-TV, a CBS owned-and-operated station in Miami, Florida, where he co-anchored newscasts with Maggie Rodriguez for four years before moving on to WHP. Hanrahan worked as an anchor for WABC-TV in New York City from 1996 to 2003.
He started working for the station as Nancy Loo’s co-anchor for the morning and midday Eyewitness News broadcast. Hanrahan was promoted by the end of 1997 to take over for Greg Hurst as Roz Abrams’ co-anchor on WABC’s 5:00 pm newscast. He remained in that position for the ensuing few years.
Hanrahan took part in a second revamp of the morning newscast during this time; he and Lori Stokes were chosen to take the place of Loo and David Ushery as morning anchors. Hanrahan did not, however, take part in the noon newscast this time. He was replaced on the early evening newscasts by Diana Williams as part of a lineup change that WABC underwent near the end of his tenure there.
