KIRO, the CBS affiliate in Seattle owned by Cox, celebrated Steve Raible’s 35 years at the station on Wednesday.
Raible joined KIRO 7 in 1982, following a six-year career as a wide receiver with the Seattle Seahawks.
In his 35-year television career, Raible has been consistently recognized for his excellence in broadcasting, including five Regional Emmy Awards – two for Best Anchor – to go along with several National awards.
Raible has reported stories from Tokyo to Moscow and has covered Olympic Games and presidential campaigns.
A member of the Seattle Seahawks radio broadcast team through four decades, he took over the play-by-play duties and formed a new team alongside Warren Moon in 2004.
In the same year, he became a published co-author with his book, Steve Raible’s Tales from the Seahawks Sidelines.
For his work as a journalist and philanthropist, in 2005 former Governor Christine Gregoire proclaimed May 4 as Steve Raible Day in the state of Washington.
Back in 1976 at the Kingdome, I got to watch the Seahawks and Steve Raible get their first win in the NFL.
Ever since Steve joined Kiro I’ve enjoyed watching his newscasts over the years. He seems like a very nice guy.
Nowadays, I really enjoy listening to Steve and Warren Moon calling the Seahawks radio broadcasts, especially when Steve yells out “Touchdown Seahawks”.
