It is with great sadness that we’ve learned of the death of Eric Slocum, former KOMO 4 anchor/reporter and former KOMO Newsradio anchor.
Eric was a part of the KOMO-TV news team for 10 years and spent another six behind a KOMO Newsradio microphone. He left KOMO Newsradio in 2008 to write a memoir and concentrate on the poems that he so loved. In 1996, Eric wrote a moving book of poems called “New Words”, which was published with Fisher and Childrens’ Hospital to help raise money for childrens’ health care.
Goodbye (In the end)
I've been to Herald Square
and Jerusalem --The River Jordan --
Sea of Galilee --
I've walked on Penny Lane.
I touched the Hollywood Sign.
so many other journeys.
—But now it's time to rest—
—been a busy day—
