In recent days, I was looking online at different websites related to the San Francisco Bay Area in order to help myself remember more in detail of the great experience I had in the Bay Area during the late 90’s. Sadly, today I came across the stories related to the death of KGO-TV personality Pete Wilson. Pete Wilson was one of a small handful of people on television and on radio (in my opinion) that demonstrated a high level of knowledge and common sense in this field. I remember Pete Wilson more from his days at KRON ( former NBC Affiliate) during the 5,6, and 11 pm newscasts where I enjoyed his “ In the Circular File” segment the most. What made Pete Wilson a stand out more in my eyes was his ability to present the news and his views not on the basis of any given political slant but on the basis of right and wrong. What hits me the most about Pete’s death was the timing of since a few days after, 4 others in the news business had passed away on July 27th in my current home in the Great state of Arizona. Pete’s Passing had the same emotional effect on me today as I did when I saw the videos and pictures of 2 TV News Helicopters (KNXV ABC 15 and KTVK 3TV) in Phoenix . What all of these men had had in common was not only the experience of the news business but all of them where hard working individuals who never took life for granted. Scott Bowerbank, Craig Smith, Jim Cox, Rick Krolak, and Pete Wilson will never be forgotten and their deaths should serve to all of us as a reminder that our lives will come to pass as well and to make the best of the short time all of us have on Earth. My condolences to the families, friends, and co-workers of these 5 gentlemen. May they all rest in peace for all of them are now in a better place.

It's been 38 days since Pete left us and I am still in shock. I miss you terribly. KGO is not the same without you anymore. Rest in peace Pete.

I'm so sorry to hear of Pete's passing. I've grown up watching him on T.V for the last 25 years. He was one of the Best Anchors on television. He will be missed.

Pete never sold out to any side and always carefully analyzed his options before making an informed choice on anything. No party line forever right or wrong, no lunatic fringe slant.... just common sense centered and balanced perspective every day in every way due to his practical and sensible midwestern roots of which he was proud and thankful. Pete was a true pro who dared to show us his actual self on the air....as a result he came across as a real person in a field full of pompous and self-rightous phonies. I will miss him.
