Seattle, WA – KING 5 will say goodbye to anchor Lori Matsukawa on Friday, June 14, marking the close of her 36 years on-air at the station. During her tenure she faithfully served our community on-air and behind the scenes, educating viewers, telling the stories of our region and supporting local nonprofits.

“KING 5 has allowed me to travel far and wide to bring stories of interest to our viewers – big cities like New York, Beijing and Tokyo; big events like the 2002 and 2010 Winter Olympics and the Mariners ALCS and delightful places like Honolulu, Orcas Island and Vancouver, B.C.,” Matsukawa continued. “When I graduated from college, I told everyone I wanted a job where I’d learn something new every day. I found it here at KING 5. I am grateful to those who’ve been my teachers, mentors and supporters all these years. Thank you for your support. It’s been a heck of a ride!”
