KOMO-TV's Steve Pool dies at 70
Steve Pool was a reporter at Seattle's KOMO TV for about 40 years. He died recently from complications of Alzheimer's Disease after cementing a model legacy for the Northwest.

The video linked below is a tribute from his colleagues. (The source is YouTube, so of course there's an ad at the beginning; you can suppress it after a few seconds of really, really information about dog food, patent medicine, etc. Not our fault.)

When I arrived in Seattle almost 40 years it seemed the friendliest, most welcoming big city I'd experienced since my youth in the 1950s. Steve Pool, whom of course I did not know, was emblematic. He seemed easy-going and unpretentious but conveyed a background of knowledge and understanding frequently missing in TV reporters, so many of whom are personalities not journalists. Hail and farewell!
