Richard Thompson Leaving Seattle’s KIRO

richard thompsonAfter 19 years at KIRO, South Sound bureau chief Richard Thompson is leaving the Seattle CBS affiliate to become a financial advisor.

Except for three years in Wichita, Thompson has worked at KIRO for his entire career. He was hired after college as a segment producer for environmental and investigative stories. He rejoined the station’s South Sound Bureau in 1995.

Thompson announced the news of his departure on Twitter. “Gotta jump out of my comfort zone and see if there’s some room to grow,” he wrote. [h/t NewsBlues]
