Biographical Sketch/Station History

History: KGAN-TV is a CBS-affiliated broadcast station that is licensed out of Cedar Rapids, IA. The station began in 1953 and was originally named WMT-TV. It now serves Eastern Iowa by providing coverage on local and national news, sports, and weather.

                Before coming to KGAN-TV, Cary J. Hahn worked in the Navy and ran the radio and television station on a ship near Vietnam. After his tour, he came back to work at several stations in the Midwest. Hahn eventually found his place at CBS2, and became known as the Iowa Traveler. He continued to work there for the next 25 years, and later became the News Director at KMRY radio station in Cedar Rapids.

Timeline: 1953-Present.
