KING-TV anchor Lori Matsukawa retiring

KING-5 anchor Lori Matsukawa has announced her retirement after 36 years of on-air work for the Tegna station.  From the Channel 5 website: “What a pleasure it’s been to work at KING 5 – a legacy station,” Matsukawa said when asked to sum up her career. “I always tell people the best part of being a television journalist is being able to tell the stories of the people who call the Northwest home. Over the decades, I’ve witnessed a lot of change, most of it for the better.  “KING 5 has allowed me to travel far and wide to bring stories of interest to our viewers – big cities like New York, Beijing and Tokyo; big events like the 2002 and 2010 Winter Olympics and the Mariners ALCS and delightful places like Honolulu, Orcas Island and Vancouver, B.C.,” Matsukawa continued. “When I graduated from college, I told everyone I wanted a job where I’d learn something new every day. I found it here at KING-5. I am grateful to those who’ve been my teachers, mentors and supporters all these years. Thank you for your support. It’s been a heck of a ride!”  We wish Lori well on her retirement after an award-winning career with KING-5 News.
