Early life and career

Hahn got his start in broadcasting on-air at CKWR in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory.

Some of his other TV and radio work has been with the San Diego Sockers, Los Angeles Kings, Vancouver Canucks, and Edmonton Oilers.

Shortly before the Sharks were formed, Hahn was vice president of a non-profit organization known as Pro Hockey San Jose. The purpose was to draw attention to the newly approved arena in the city, and hopefully acquire an NHL team for San Jose.

Personal life

On June 8, 1995 Hahn was arrested on a charge of drug possession after receiving a packet containing narcotics in the mail.[2] The charges were dropped in March 1996.

Hahn is a native of Edmonton, Alberta. Hahn is married to Roberta Gonzales, an Emmy Award winning meteorologist for KPIX-TV.
