WHO WE ARE
THE VOICE OF UNION FANS.
UnionFanTV is an online news network and news site that engages and connects with fans of the Philadelphia Union through our brand, We The People, and a number of social media platforms.
We The People –– For the Fans, by the Fans. Always. –– is a curated community of originative Union fans, bloggers, journalists and artists, who are dedicated to keeping fans ahead of the game.
Through clever storytelling and film-making, a burgeoning social media presence, and a dedication to lively reporting, UnionFanTV aims to tell the stories around the club that are otherwise left untold.
As fans, we know what keeps us up at night. We tell the stories, host the conversations and publish the news surrounding the club that truly matters, and we do so in a way that no one else can.
MANAGING EDITOR AND FOUNDER –
Jason Hannigan, 19
Jason is the founder of UnionFanTV and We The People brand. A Union expat, Jason currently resides in Ithaca, New York, where he studies Journalism at Ithaca College. Life in the miserable Finger Lakes region helps him to reminisce on that cold, wet night at Talen Energy Stadium versus Montreal.
You hear it all the time that there is more than one way to tell a good story. However, I believe there is always another story. Truthfully, there are likely hundreds surrounding the club that are left untold. I started UnionFanTV with the intention of creating a platform for Union fans of all ages and walks of life. I envisioned a site that allows fans to express their passion for their beloved club.
John is the host of We The People Podcast. A recent graduate from Wissahickon High School, John currently attends The Pennsylvania State University, where he studies Computer Science and German. Growing up, John played soccer for Whitpain Township. Sadly, his club career came to an end during his freshman year of high school following two knee surgeries. An avid Philadelphia Union fan, John has been a proud supporter and season ticket holder since 2011. He enjoys spending his free time over on r/PhillyUnion and r/mls. John can also be found on YouTube under the alias of JohnyJ25, an account that has amassed for him quite a respectable following.

Joe joined We the People as a contributor in Spring 2017. He has been a Philadelphia Union season ticket holder since 2010. More often than not, Joe finds that his team –– the Philadelphia Union –– may cause him to feel a little frustrated. Nevertheless, as any true supporter would, Joe has stuck with his team through thick and thin, and in doing so, he has shown that he is certainly Ad Finem Fidelis.
