    foolish I say. Devoting money, personnel & resources to a webcast-only/Facebook stream doesn’t seem to be a good way to broadcast news – not yet at least. For those like me who refuse to use Facebook, nor even own a computer or handheld device these newscasts will be inaccesible

    Slight correction. Jordan Steele will be the primary evening meteorologist essentially pushing Jim Guy to another shift or out the door. He won’t be doing any news anchoring tho if need be they can use him as a fill-in on New Day NW.

    I think if KING can get more for their dollar, they will use Jordan Steele where they can.

    Too bad Seattle KING 5 weather staff will have no level of local experience in the evening after Jim Guy leaves. Can`strand Rhonda Lee, she simply reads the teleprompter. Guess we will be leaving K-5 for local news and weather. It was a good 35 years. Will watch mornings as long as Rich Marriott remains.

    Agreed. They are getting rid of all the old-timers. The best of KING 5 are being let go.
