"Victoria is the type of student who simply gets the work done, and she does a quality job at the same time,” said Roger Sadler, WIU broadcasting professor.

Hanson is a member of Students in the Illinois News Broadcasters Association, and is a 2013 inductee in the National Broadcasting Society.

"I am so thankful to have won WQPT’s broadcast scholarship. My final semester will be this fall, and I can’t believe my college years are coming to an end. I am excited for my future,  and thanks to WQPT, I will have a little less financial stress." Hanson said. "I have been a television reporter on WIU’s newscast for two years, and I will be a television anchor in the fall for a second semester. I hope to become a television anchor or reporter for a local television station on the East Coast."

WQPT is a media service of Western Illinois University located in Moline.
