Read About Taryn Hatcher, the Philadelphia Sports Connoisseur

By Jessica Tzikas | November 5, 2019 | People


Growing up in South Jersey, Taryn Hatcher has always been a Philly sports fan. During her time at Rutgers University, Hatcher interned at NBC Sports Philadelphia, before accepting a position in Hawaii post-graduation. After working for Hawaii News Now as a sports anchor and reporter for three years, Hatcher was offered the job she always wanted: returning to her internship as a multiplatform reporter and anchor, eventually gaining the opportunity to report rinkside for the Flyers. “I always hoped, at some point in my life, I might be fortunate enough to cover the teams I loved growing up, in front of my family and friends,” she says. “Sometimes I still can’t believe I get to do this.” As she begins her second season with the Flyers, Hatcher talks about the places and spaces that she loves most in Philly.

WINE AND DINE “I love Barcelona Wine Bar. The food is great, and there’s such a cool vibe inside.” 1709 E. Passyunk Ave.,
