KHQ anchor Sean Owsley announces retirement after nearly 30 years in journalism


Longtime KHQ Local News morning show anchor Sean Owsley will walk off the set for the last time at the end of May, when he will hang up a 27-year career in television journalism to spend more time with his family.

I don't watch local television news broadcasts very often these days, but Sean Owsley has been a ubiquitous part of the Spokane broadcasting fabric since I started college and I'm sorry to see him leaving the airways. He seems far too youthful to be retiring and I can't help but wonder if there are pandemic related advertising economics at play here. Regardless, in the short term it sounds like he's looking forward to the change and I would be shocked if he doesn't turn up on the air again in Spokane or elsewhere within a year.
