We had the perennially-popular Jean Enersen and the late Kathi Goertzen in local news up here. Enersen worked for KING for 48 years. (Her male co-anchor and the company meteorologist were also pretty long in the tooth.) Goertzen only avoided a similarly distinguished career by getting a brain tumor and dying at 54. We like our anchors seasoned. (Though now that KOMO has been subsumed by Sinclair, that's due to change there.)
