The Seahawks have lost a great member of our news family. Mike Kahn came to the Seattle area with John Clayton in 1986. Together they covered the major sports in the area for The News Tribune.
In 1995 he left us to build a sports internet site from scratch. Yep you guessed it. This site.
I came here thinking that there would be a nice write up on one of the founders passing but there was not. I guess I have to do it myself.
Mike passed away Wednesday night from a long fight with lung cancer, his family by his side. The Seattle readers will miss him as we are very proud that such a prominent man in the sports media would choose us and our teams to represent over all others. He came back to us in 2004, just in time to experience our Super Bowl run first hand. We have been honored to have him as a team insider these past few years and he will remain in the Spirit of 12 forever.
We will miss you Mike! Our prayers are with the Kahn Family in their time of grief.
RIP Mike Kahn! You have left us too soon.
