KOMO-TV weathercaster Steve Pool announces retirement

 KOMO-4 TV  today reports that well-known & popular weather forecaster Steve Pool has announced his retirement after 40 years in broadcasting – most of it spent at KOMO-4.  A University of Wash. graduate, he began his career at Channel 4 in the late 1970’s as an intern. In Sept. 2018, Steve revealed his diagnosis of prostate cancer & took time off to seek treatment.  Happily, Steve’s cancer is now in remission.  However, he now feels it’s time to turn the weather maps over to a replacement.
