On the Double with The Double S Xpress, November 24, 2014
Show 80 of On the Double is action packed with Eric Johnson of KOMO-TV in Seattle, former University of Washington WR Mario Bailey, and Jeff Aaron, host of 3-5 Live with The Fish on 1380 FOX Sports Radio in Everett, WA
Guest, Eric Johnson
Eric was the Sports Director at KOMO for many years, but recently he became the anchor for the 5:00 news.
He was raised in Spokane (East Valley High School), and majored in broadcasting in the Edward R. Murrow School of Communications at Washington State University. He also played baseball at WSU (he says with very limited success).
In his 15 years at KOMO, Eric has been awarded more than 25 Regional Emmy Awards, and in 2007 was given the highest prize in local television news, a National Edward R. Murrow Award for best feature story in the country.
He has been in the middle of most of the major Seattle sports stories of the past decade and a half. He was there for the '95 Mariners, and the '96 Sonics, the Seahawks Super Bowl run, too many Apple Cups to count, and the Storm's championship season.
In 1993 he created a popular weekly feature called, "Eric's Little Heroes." Seattle laughed for years at kids running the wrong way, saying the wrong things, and proving every week what sports are truly about. And after being gone for a couple of years, "Eric's Little Heroes" has returned to KOMO 4.
Eric has a wife and two children; a boy and a girl. In his spare time he plays in an adult baseball league, works on his antique Ford, plays piano, and writes music.
