Hannah Bullard


Hannah Bullard is a junior at Murray State University, majoring in journalism with a minor in biology.

She’s from Herndon, Kentucky. Herndon is a tight-knit farming community just twenty minutes south of Hopkinsville, Kentucky. She’s inspired by the closeness of her community.

She feels she gets her desire to be involved in community from her parents who are active in the Christian County area.

Hannah first began listening to public radio on a cross-country road trip. She appreciates the uniqueness and substance that public radio offers to listeners.

She’s proud to be serving her Western Kentucky home through WKMS News.
