KING 5's Robert Mak is leaving TV to be Mayor Greg Nickel's new communications director. Mak is one of the best journalists of any sort in Washington state, and one of the very few TV reporters who continue to follow politics closely.
His award-winning work on KING 5 will be missed. He's also a nice guy and I'll miss hanging out with him at news events as I've done for years. But it seems like he's already fitting in at City Hall:
"Mayor Nickels has led a successful agenda addressing climate change, improving transportation, and fostering healthy neighborhoods," said Mak. "With the Mayor committed to supporting better schools and creating more economic opportunities for all, this is an exciting time to join the City of Seattle."
UPDATE: I see from Jim Brunner's story that Mak will be making $160,000 a year.
