By Kevin Eck 

KING anchor Steve Soliz is moving to weekdays for the Seattle NBC affiliate.

Soliz announced the move on social media by showing off a picture of the weekday news team on the side of a city bus.

“So, why is my face on the side of a Seattle bus?” he said in his announcement. “I’m thrilled to officially announce that I am joining the weekday evening anchor team at KING 5! After almost a year of anchoring on the weekends and reporting during the week, I will now be sharing the anchor desk every weeknight with my friends Joyce, Jessica and Greg!”


Soliz has worked as a weekend anchor and weekday reporter at the station since March 2021.

He also said he was able to share the news with his sister before she passed, adding, “I hope I will continue to make her proud.”

Before joining KING, he worked at KOB in Albuquerque, N.M. He’s also worked at KRGV in Weslaco, Texas, Bonneville Phoenix Radio and KPHO in Phoenix.
