A day after the Las Vegas mass shooting, KING 5 anchor Mark Wright delivered a message on gun violence.
Wright’s son witnessed the mass shooting in Mukilteo last year in which three of his friends died.
"It was a territory I’d never gone before," said Wright.
"I described it as the scariest five minutes I’ve ever done on TV because it was live, it was very personal, and I never know when the emotions are ever going to come out.
"It’s weird how these things happen. When you go through a trauma like my son did -- by extension all of the families involved have been impacted in some way," he said.
Wright made a renewed call for common ground on KING 5’s The Sound podcast.
"I think if we just sit down together, we can reach a place of understanding that can lead to sensible regulation," he said.
