Early life and career Edit
Hahn got his start in broadcasting on-air at CKRW in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory. His 1980s TV work included Ivy League Game of the Week football broadcasts.
He and Rick Davis called the final of the first FIFA Women's World Cup from Guangzhou, China for SportsChannel America in November 1991.
He, Jamie Baker, and Bret Hedican forms the broadcast team for the San Jose Sharks on NBC Sports California. Jamie Baker joins him for most games although Bret Hedican joins him when Jamie Baker calls the game on radio with Dan Rusanowsky.

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 (both the team and the arena did come to fruition).
