From Sarah Feldberg, Editor for Emerging Products and Audio:
The San Francisco Chronicle is delighted to announce the hiring of Hannah Hagemann as its new Weather Science Editor.
In this role, a new position at The Chronicle, Hagemann will lead a team covering the weather and climate of the Bay Area, including forecasts that serve our local audience and news stories about developing weather events. The team will also produce smart explainers that illuminate the science behind atmospheric rivers and fire tornadoes, and data stories that place the weather outside our windows in historical context.
“Increasingly frequent wildfires, multi-year droughts and historic rain storms have already changed life for Californians,” Hagemann said. “More than ever, we need data-rich science journalism that connects the dots between shifting weather patterns and climate change. I’m ecstatic to grow a team that will fill this gap.”
Hagemann comes to The Chronicle from Santa Cruz, where her reporting on the 2020 CZU August Lightning Complex fire for the Santa Cruz Sentinel and NPR earned awards and spurred regulatory investigations.
