In 1943 the Hubberten family moved from Krefeld to St. Tönis . At the age of 17, after finishing school (including at the Fichte-Gymnasium in Krefeld), he had the opportunity to learn "practice" in the field of entertainment at the station in Cologne, today's WDR . Hubberten was allowed to perform humorous songs on the piano at a young talent competition of the NWDR . The then NWDR head of entertainment, Peter Kottmann, offered him a traineeship. Hans Hubberten took it immediately. This enabled him to contact people from the entertainment industry and ultimately resulted in the solid build-up of further success. His special style of musical conferences was praised by many well-known artists, but also by the audience. He made a name for himself with his “stroll through West German cabarets”. Harald Vock , head of the entertainment department at NDR , then discovered the talented point writer for television. One of his sponsors at that time was also the show director Michael Pflegehar .

The television success story of Peter Alexander is connected to Hubberten's career . The ZDF shows (specialties ..., Congratulations ...) with the books by Hans Hubberten and performed by Peter Alexander achieved high ratings. The team around the successful producer Wolfgang Rademann ( Das Traumschiff , Die Schwarzwaldklinik ) and television show director Ekkehard Böhmer set standards in television entertainment.
