Eric Johnson KOMO
Johnson is currently a weeknight news anchor at 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. He started working as a broadcaster in 1984 at KTVB 7 in Boise, Idaho, where he was the weekend sports reporter. However, after two years, he was given the job of sports director at KBOI 2, which used to be KBCI-TV. In the same role, he worked at Spokane’s KREM 2 from 1987 to 1989. Then he went to Portland, Oregon’s KGW 8, where he stayed until 1993.
He started at KOMO 4 in 1993 as the station’s weekend sports anchor, taking over for longtime KOMO sportscaster Rick Meeder and fill-in sports reporter Bob Rondeau. He made the popular show “Eric’s Little Heroes” in 1994. It’s about the sports problems of kids in the Seattle area in Little League games all over the area and is told in a strange and funny way. Eric’s Little Heroes stopped airing in 2006, but a lot of fans pushed for it to come back in early 2008.
In September 1995, Bruce King, who had been KOMO’s sports director for a long time, stopped hosting the 11 o’clock evening sports shows. This made room for Eric Johnson to become KOMO’s sports director. Bruce King retired from KOMO-TV in July 1996, after more than 30 years of service. When he did, he made Eric Johnson the new sports director for all evening KOMO News 4 shows.
For his work at KOMO over 25 years, Eric has won more than 25 Regional Emmy Awards. In 2007, he won the National Edward R. Murrow Award for the best feature story in the country, which is the greatest honor in local TV news. During his time at KOMO, he has covered almost all of Seattle’s big sports events, as well as some that took place outside of Seattle.
Moreover, there was an award-winning video he made about a group of American kids who went to Cuba to play baseball against Cuban teams. And he was in charge of the Seattle Seahawks’ trip to the Super Bowl in 2005. Whenever the Mariners, Sonics, or Seahawks play, you can often see him reporting live from the game.
The second part of 2006 was the first time Johnson was in charge of the news. He took over KOMO 4 News at 5 o’clock from Dan Lewis, who had been the news anchor for a long time. This happened when KOMO changed their evening newscast lineup.Moreover, from 2007 to 2008, Lewis co-anchored the 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. news with Kathi Goertzen. From 2008 to 2014, she did the same job with Mary Nam.
In addition, Johnson hosted the 5 p.m. news with Kathi Goertzen from 2007 to 2008. From 2008 to 2012, he did it with Mary Nam or Dan Lewis. Johnson now hosts the 5 p.m. news with Molly Shen and the 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. news with Mary Nam. This is because Dan Lewis quit as reporter in May 2014, after 27 years of service. Moreover, Tim Lewis, the son of his coworker Dan Lewis and a former weekend sports reporter for KOMO 4, was sports director at KREM 2 from January 2009 to May 2012. Johnson had been in that position from 1987 to 1989.
He went to Spokane East Valley High School and earned his diploma there. Moreover, he had a major in broadcasting at Washington State University’s Edward R. Murrow School of Communications. Additionally, he played baseball at WSU.
