Longtime KIRO reporter Micki Flowers departed the station this week after more than 30 years. Flowers became the first African-American female journalist to go on air in Seattle in 1973.

Flowers most recently served as KIRO's health specialist, a position she held since 1987. During her three decades with the station, she has worked as an anchor, reporter and weathercaster.

"We are indebted to Micki for gracing KIRO with her talents over the past three decades, for breaking down barriers in the television industry and for the positive impact she has had on our community," said news director Helen Swenson in a statement. "Her list of accomplishments is only surpassed by her long list of friends she has made here at KIRO-TV."

Flowers is a graduate of the University of Washington. She and her husband, Robert, have two sons.

Flowers is leaving KIRO to travel and spend time with her family.
