Island Crossroads


Eric Pryne began his journalism career more than 40 years ago in radio (in Walla Walla) and TV (in New York), but he soon migrated to print, spending more than three decades writing and occasionally editing at the Seattle Times. His beats ranged from environmental issues and politics (including three years as the paper’s Washington, D.C., correspondent) to investigations, growth, transportation and real estate.
