Paige Hansen is a weekend anchor at KOLD News 13 in Tucson. Before moving to the Southwest in October 2011, Paige worked as the morning live reporter at the NBC affiliate in Bakersfield, Calif., a couple hours North of Los Angeles.
Paige was born in Fresno, Calif., and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. She left her home state to pursue a degree in Broadcast Journalism from the University of Missouri (Go Tigers!). During college, Paige discovered her passion for traveling and melded that passion with her love for journalism. She worked as a media volunteer during the Summer Olympics in Beijing, China; interned with NBC's TODAY Show in New York City; served as an assistant producer for NBC during the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, and was an intern for the investigative unit at NBC in Los Angeles.
When Paige isn't working, you can find her hiking in the beautiful mountains in Pima County or training for her first half-marathon. Paige is also a self-proclaimed "foodie" and loves cooking and baking in addition to finding the best local restaurants.
