Mary Nam 

Mary joined KOMO in 2003 as a general assignment reporter. She was promoted three years later and now anchors the hourlong newscast with Steve Pool and fills in for Kathi Goertzen.

Mary was born in South Korea and moved to the United States at the age of four. Her family moved to Washington in 1994 and is proud to call the Pacific Northwest home. One of two Nam girls, she headed for the rolling hills of the Palouse (her sister is a Whitman grad) and found her calling in broadcasting at the Edward R. Murrow College of Communication. She is now one of many proud Cougs in the KOMO newsroom.

Mary began her journalism career reporting in Spokane at the ABC affiliate KXLY-TV. Her live coverage of the deadly Revelstoke, B.C. avalanche in January of 2003 caught the attention of the Seattle station and she joined KOMO that summer. Since then she’s covered breaking news stories from both out on the field and behind the desk. Her anchoring earned her an Emmy nomination. Read More
