KOMO Cuts Commentator Ken Schram

KOMO commentator Ken Schram has been let go at the Seattle ABC affiliate.

“My position here at KOMO 4 News has been eliminated,” Schram wrote on Facebook Wednesday. “I’d be less than candid if I didn’t acknowledge how disappointed I am to have my 35+ year career at KOMO end this way. Still, it’s been a great run.”

Schram’s last “Schrammie” presentation will be Wednesday night, and his last daily commentary will be Monday. He also hosts a daily radio program every afternoon on KOMO Newsradio.
