  1. well good luck to him on that.
    I don’t know if that’s a good time for it or not with all the people that left King 5 I would think you’d have some potential clients.

    I wish you guys here at Q z v x would do a story on why does King 5 have the rotation of people in and out and why do they have so many news anchors. It used to be the news anchor worked all the morning ones until noon and then 4:00 5:00 same people now you got people working two hour shifts and they’re done. Plus four or five weather casters and then they have to pull in Steven kilbraith to fill in crazy cuz the other ones aren’t available I

    But back to Steve interesting to see his picture where he’s actually wearing a suit and he has the tie on something that he couldn’t do at King 5 in the last 6 months to a year he very seldom wore a tie on air I would think that would be one of the requirements at least it was years ago what I meant and announcer and he says yeah we have to have a good wardrobe oh and I did notice that Steve’s hair transplant is working well looks like it’s all grown back in now

    Oh and I want to comes to the dressing professionally sorry Steve your shoes suck

    1. Rotating anchors is a situation happening in other major markets, like San Francisco. The issue seems to be with the new generation of reporters and anchors. Working in their chosen field seems to be too stressful. I guess they didn’t understand what they signed up for. Going to the scene of crimes and gnarly traffic accidents, blood and death, stress them to the point that they need time off and therapy. Used to be that reporters became somewhat hardened to these things. Not easy but it is what they signed up for. Another aspect is the pay. Not everybody gets star status and top pay. Fame doesn’t come easily and not everyone gets a trophy. There is no value in a trophy anyway. Hard work is — hard.

      1. Most young people in the Seattle TV market seem to last only a year or two at best. Many of them have a focus on creating a “Brand” and building a portfolio of selfies rather than being a journalist. Even the stations mostly refer to them as “storytellers” which is probably more accurate. As for KING5 once they went to race and inclusion based hiring rather than qualifications the revolving door seemed to hit warp speed. Strange times.

        1. Well, who is to they would not post selfie in a different era if selfies and posting were a thing at a time. Pretty faces on local and network news is nothing new, Roger Mudd was always bitter because Dan Rather got the anchor position to replace Walter Cronkite, thinking it was because Rather was easier on the eyes.
          Point being, in the good old days, people still reminisced about what they thought were the good old days.

          1. True. Reminiscing about the better days past, because things just keep getting worse. News people are even more vain now, or have more avenues to show that they are.
