WSU to Name Building in Honor of Former KOMO Anchor Kathi Goertzen

Washington State University has announced plans to name a building at The Edward R. Murrow College of Communication after former KOMO anchor Kathi Goertzen, who died last year from complications of brain tumors.

Goertzen graduated from WSU in 1980 and joined KOMO later that year. The building will be known as the Kathi Goertzen Communication Addition and will become home to Murrow College’s nightly newscast, which Goertzen worked for while she was a student.

“We recognize the unique perseverance, hard work and dedication that Kathi demonstrated throughout her professional career and in her personal life,” WSU president Elson S. Floyd said in a statement. “Kathi will forever be remembered as the truest of Cougs whose life is an inspiration to WSU’s alumni, friends and students for years to come.”
