Starting in August 2008, WMBF Chief Photographer Drew Hansen will be seen out in the field, shooting the latest breaking news in Myrtle Beach and Florence. A graduate of Southern Illinois University, Drew joins the WMBF team from WSIL-TV in Illinois where he worked as Chief Photographer. While he worked at WSIL, Drew could be found shooting video of appearances by legendary celebrities such as Carole King to alligator hunting trips.
Drew is most anxious about working at WMBF because of the excitement television production has to offer. Like the rest of the WMBF staff, Drew is happy to have the opportunity to meet new people and experience new things in the Grand Strand on a regular basis. Always covering a different news story from day to day, Drew says what he likes most about his job is the opportunity to travel and to "tell a great story."
Outside of the newsroom and away from his camera, Drew enjoys going to the beach and boogy-boarding. He also enjoys spending time with his wife, Erica, and his two young daughters, Olivia and London.
