Friday Quickie— Viewers Question: What Happened To Steve Bunin? Gone, Gone, Gone.

Steve Bunin exited KING 5 in mid-October. It was NOT his choice to do so. He has not gone into detail on the subject. He mentioned on Facebook, “I’m still in Seattle, but no longer at KING5. Hopefully, you’ll find me on another TV station in town soon, but if not, I’ve had a great run – from ESPN to KING and many other places as well!”…Mike Nicco exits KGO tv/San Francisco to Join KSHB/Kansas City as Chief Meteorologist, replacing Gary Lezak, who retires December 1st...Mike Nelson, weathercaster at KMGH/Denver, celebrates 46 years in the Tv biz…

  1. King 5 has gone from great to mediocre what a shame! Steve Bunin was a much better anchor than what is currently at the noon time slot. Very sad to see the anchors talk with Chuck Todd on Fridays, they just don’t get it.

  2. I don’t understand why King 5 fires so many good people such as Steve Bunin. He was VERY positive and I enjoyed listening to this “above the fold” segment and did an excellent dog segment. He seemed to care about his community.

  3. I quit KING5 months ago. Tired of the downward spiral of on air staff. Been a viewer since forever but enough is enough. So sad.

  4. Something wrong is going on with whoever is on the Top Management of KING TV. A lot of known favorite newscasters and Weather Men just suddenly disappear. There is some sort of Power Tripping going on there.

  5. As a life long Seattle area viewer KING 5 was my go to station since my late teens through my 40’s/early 50’s. I find it unwatchable now (as most stations are). There was a time when they simply reported the news. Not the news through the reporter or stations blatant political or social bias. (I get that there is always some hint of bias) KING 5 has made a conscious effort to refer to their news readers as “storytellers” rather than reporters. Give me the audio and video in an un-biased, opinion free way, and I can decide how I’ll interpret. They got rid of their solid journalists and now are more like “KID 5” news.

    Please give the viewing public the respect and opportunity to make up their own minds.
