Reporter, KFVS

Cape Girardeau, MO

Isabelle Hanson joins the Heartland News Team as a reporter/multimedia journalist.

Before she could fully speak, Isabelle motioned to the television and expressed to her mom that she wanted to be “in” the screen dancing and singing with the characters.

Although 2-year-old Isabelle could have never guessed she would be “in” the TV as a news reporter, she is thrilled about the direction her life took, leading her to KFVS12. With a passion for writing and storytelling, Isabelle pursued a degree in journalism from Miami University in Ohio, as well as a degree in music and a marketing minor.

At Miami, she reported for Oxford Weekly News, interned at Seacrest Studios located inside Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, and sang in an a cappella group.

Outside of the newsroom, you can find Isabelle playing her violin, baking anything involving chocolate, and playing music at children’s hospitals.

Joining the Heartland community and sharing your stories is an honor to Isabelle, and she is looking forward to the people she will meet along the way.

Please feel free to reach out to Isabelle by email at or on her Facebook page with any story ideas.
