KING5 reporter to work for new Al Jazeera Seattle bureau

Al Jazeera is opening a bureau in Seattle, and former KING5 reporter Allen Schauffler will become its first correspondent, according to a news release from Al Jazeera America.

Along with the Seattle bureau, Al Jazeera America is opening 11 other bureaus in the country.

Schauffler, a familiar face to KING5 viewers, had spent more than 20 years  at the station as a reporter, anchor and show host, before his last broadcast on Sunday. Before coming to KING, he served as an anchor, reporter and producer for KSBY-TV in San Luis Obispo, Calif. His career began in Bend, Ore., at KTVZ, where he was a reporter and photographer.
