Steve Pool (born November 5, 1953) is the principal weather anchor for KOMO-TV in Seattle, having joined the station as an intern while attending the University of Washington. He joined in 1977 as KOMO's principal science reporter, in addition to serving as weekend news anchor and weather forecaster.
In 1984, he became KOMO's primary weather forecaster after the retirement of longtime KOMO weather anchor Ray Ramsey. That same year, he began hosting a program on KOMO-TV titled "Front Runners" which aired every Saturday at 7:30PM on KOMO. The show would soon pick up nationwide syndication and featured the stories of people who beat all odds or had a unique talent, etc. Memorable segments of Front Runners include a look behind the scenes at the world of Bill Nye the Science Guy and a look at the career of fellow KOMO colleague Kathi Goertzen, as well as a behind-the-scenes tour at KOMO. Front Runners was produced by Ken Morrison and won many awards in its run, including scores of Emmy Awards. The show ended in 1996.
Additionally, he is the author of a book about weather and its forecasting, titled "Somewhere, I Was Right."
During the 1990s, Pool hosted a video series titled I Wanna Be...(astronaut, construction worker, pilot, TV news reporter, ship captain, etc).  This series is now part of the "Little Steps" DVD series.
In 1992 Pool interviewed a young Bruno Mars, who was then doing an Elvis impersonation show.
