Dateline NBC

  • His pioneering work includes reporting of the Columbine High School shooting, the Oklahoma City bombing, the Unabomber and the TWA Flight 800 crash, and investigative reports on Indian child slave labour and illegal prescription drug trafficking in China. Hansen was responsible for much of Dateline's coverage of the September 11 attacks, as well as reports about militant groups and Al-Qaeda activities. He also clarified how a group linked to Osama Bin Laden attempted to procure missiles and nuclear weapons materials, and also worked on an exclusive study on the hijacking of Air France Flight 8969. His focus on the lack of protection at airports contributed to the launch of an inquiry by the Federal Aviation Administration and the eventual review of its policies.

  • Dateline NBC produced three Tuesday night spin-offs of his initial concept; Hansen hosted To Catch a Con Man and To Catch an I.D. Thief, guy. In March 2007, Hansen's book, To Catch a Predator: Protecting Your Kids from Online Enemies Already in Your Home, was launched on the American market
