BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) – KFYR’s Monica Hannan was honored by the North Dakota Broadcaster’s Association with their biggest award. She was given the NDBA “Pioneer” award at a ceremony on Wednesday.
Monica is the first woman to ever be awarded the NDBA Pioneer in Broadcasting award. The Pioneer award is given to a broadcaster whose contribution to the industry promises to have enduring value throughout North Dakota in television or radio.
Monica Hannan is a familiar face to thousands of television news viewers in western North Dakota. She has anchored the number one rated 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. newscast for KFYR-TV for more than 30 years.
“She’s part of the reason that KFYR-TV has always been number one,” said Dick Heidt, former KFYR-TV news director and general manager.
