Did You Know?
[on his inspiration for going into journalism]
When I was 14 years old, Jimmy Hoffa was kidnapped from a restaurant, the Red Fox, that was about 1 and 1/2 miles up the street from where I lived. I used to ride my bike up there and the FBI was up there and it was a crime scene and there were local police and local news reporters; I got bit by the bug watching that.
Hansen has stated that what inspired him to want to become a journalist was when he was 14, Jimmy Hoffa was kidnapped in a restaurant less than two miles away from where he lived and he would ride his bicycle to the crime scene and watch the police and FBI working on Hoffa's disappearance and the reporters covering the big story - watching all of this had a profound effect on him.
