Seattle Anchor Shares Personal Story About Sexual Abuse

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

KING anchor, Amity Addrisi, shared her story of sexual abuse with viewers Monday night.

In the seven minute segment Addrisi told a narrative about a little girl who was sexually abused by older cousins in a basement in exchange for candy. She later revealed that girl was her and that she hid her story for decades.

Prompted by the #MeToo social media movement following harassment claims against Hollywood producer, Harvey Weinstein, the Seattle anchor says she decided to speak out.
