Best TV News Anchor

Dan Lewis

The viewing public has watched Dan Lewis' hair turn gray over the years as anchor of KOMO-TV's evening and late-night news, but trust and likability never grow old. He's genial without silly chatter, somber when appropriate, a pro at handling breaking stories. Over the years he has adapted nicely to the station's changing formats, sets, and co-anchors. Viewers clearly miss his longtime news partner Kathi Goertzen, who remains off the air during her continuing battle with brain cancer—Lewis, Goertzen, and weatherman Steve Pool are reputedly the third-longest-running anchor combo in America, dating back to 1987. Now teamed with the likable Mary Nam, Lewis—in an era of loud-mouthed talking heads—remains local TV's Nice Guy. RICK ANDERSON
