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.
