After 32 years in broadcasting, Chris Francis will retire (maybe) in August. At least, that is when he departs KIRO 7 for whatever new venture he may become involved in. Francis has worked at markets such as Portland, Maine – Washington, DC – Wilmington, NC – Norfolk, VA – Milwaukee – San Francisco … what’s next?

@KIRO7Seattle for the 2nd #%$^&*! time. Never thought I’d have something in common w Pete Carroll, Dave Hakstol and Mike Hopkins. That said, the farewell tour runs until August 1. Like Chuck and the @NBAonTNT crew, I’m goin’ 🎣 but “I’ll be hittin’ up LinkedIn” (Ugh)”
