Award-winning journalist, producer and director Hannah Storm is a pioneer in the field of sports broadcasting for women, a published author, an advocate for children suffering from debilitating vascular birthmarks, and most importantly, a mother of three.

Storm joined ESPN in 2008, where she is co-host of the weekday edition of SportsCenter and host of SportsCenter Sunday Morning during the NFL season. Storm is also host and executive producer of ESPN's primetime interview specials, In Focus with Hannah Storm and Face to Face with Hannah Storm.

Storm routinely hosts major events around the world, such as Wimbledon, the U.S. Open, the New York Marathon, Veterans Day special programming, the Super Bowl, the NCAA College Football Playoff National Championship, the Rose Parade on ABC, and the ESPY Awards. Throughout her career, she has interviewed many notable figures, including NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, Patriots' owner Robert Kraft, Peyton and Eli Manning, Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, LeBron James, and Derek Jeter. Storm also serves as a correspondent for ABC's 20/20, where she's done pieces with Shark Tank stars Robert Herjavec and Kevin O'Leary.

Storm previously covered sports for CNN, serving as the first ever female host of Sports Tonight from 1989-1992. In 1992, Storm went on to work for NBC Sports, where she became the first woman in American television history to solo host a broadcast network's sports series when she hosted its Major League Baseball coverage. In 2002, Storm headed to CBS to serve as a host of The Early Show, covering key global events including the 2004 U.S. presidential election, the war in Iraq, and Hurricane Katrina, before joining ESPN in 2008.

In 2008, Storm pursued an additional passion of hers outside of the broadcasting world: film production. She founded Brainstormin' Productions, through which she has produced, executive produced and directed several award-winning documentary films as well as branded content. Film projects include Unmatched, for ESPN's Peabody Award-winning "30 for 30" film series, and Shaq & Dale, for the SEC Network/ESPN/ABC.

That same year, Storm founded the Hannah Storm Foundation, which advocates and funds critical surgeries for children suffering from debilitating vascular birthmarks around the world.

Storm is the award-winning author of "Notre Dame Inspirations" (Doubleday, 2006), and "Go Girl!: Raising Healthy, Confident and Successful Daughters through Sports" (Sourcebooks, 2002; 2011 re-release). For her literary work, Storm was honored by the Literacy Advance of Houston as its "Champion of Literacy."

Storm has received numerous awards for her work in media and other pursuits, including the 2000 Gracie Award® for Pioneering work as a female in the world of sports broadcasting; the 2005 Gracie Award® for Outstanding Anchor, News; and the 2011 Gracie Award® for Outstanding Producer - News/Non-fiction for Unmatched. In 2007, Storm was named to The Paley Center for Media's prestigious "She Made It, Women Creating Television and Radio" Hall-of-Fame.
