WATCH: Behind the scenes of Dan Lewis' last day at KOMO

One week ago, Wednesday May 21st, marked the end of a brilliant career of anchoring for Dan Lewis at KOMO TV. A 27 year career that he never once called in sick, had a routine of eating an apple a day in between news shows and was our voice to the viewers of channel four.

A pure professional who at times had his emotion show through during some rough news moments in the last few years. His grace and sincerity shined when he adlibbed through a live memorial service, breaking news or the death of a colleague such as his former co-anchor Kathi Goertzen in 2012.

Our cameras followed Dan on his last day and his farewell speech to the KOMO staff before taking the anchor desk for the final time. His leadership, humor and professionalism will be missed but we wish him all the best. Thank you for everything Dan.
