A good journalist always checks the facts. This week we lost one of Seattle’s iconic journalists – news anchor Kathi Goertzen of KOMO. Beginning in 1983, Kathi brought the facts to Seattle living rooms and kitchens. Through elections, recessions, and many changes in the Emerald City. The role of the news anchor changed a lot in the years that Kathi was part of the anchor desk. Many believe that anchors became commentators rather than journalists. Kathi was a journalist.
