Hannah Allam

OU Daily alum and Student Media Hall of Fame inductee Hannah Allam is joining The Washington Post.

Allam, a member of the class of 1999 who interned at The Post following graduation, will cover domestic terrorism on The Post’s national security team. From The Post’s release:

On this new beat, Hannah will report on the mainstreaming of hate and extremism, online radicalization that leads to real-world violence and the national security implications of the country’s polarization.

Hannah comes to us from NPR, where she has reported extensively on far-right militias and hate groups as a national correspondent covering extremism, a beat that she established there. Before that, she was on the national desk at BuzzFeed News, reporting on American Muslims and other issues of race and religion. She also spent a decade as a McClatchy foreign correspondent, serving as bureau chief in Baghdad during the Iraq War and in Cairo during the Arab Spring rebellions. She returned to Washington in 2012 to cover foreign policy.

Allam, who grew up in Oklahoma City, was previously editor of The Daily.
