I will be honest. My dream job is playing center-field for the San Francisco Giants. But coming in at a close second would have to be reporting for KING 5 News.

Since I started at KING in 2006, I've been able to interview Medal of Honor recipients, countless good Samaritans and world champions.

The highlights: covering historic events like the signing of the gay marriage bill, seeing the first I-502 license to grow pot issued and traveling to New York/New Jersey to cover the Seahawks domination.

I grew up in San Francisco, but moved to Bellevue to finish high school at Newport HS. (Go Knights!)

After graduating from the UW (Go Dawgs!), I worked in Yakima, Las Vegas and Portland before becoming KING's South Bureau Chief.

I love telling stories to my friends, wife, daughters and dog.

If you have a story that needs to be told, email me at or send me a tweet @drewmikkelsenk5!
