Bio

Mark Kriski has been a fixture at Channel 5 for more than two decades. He can be seen every Monday through Friday (7 a.m. to 10 a.m.) on the KTLA Morning News.

Kriski’s weather knowledge and expertise place him at the top of his field and have earned him nine Emmy Awards and an Associated Press Radio-Television Award. The Los Angeles Times named Kriski the funniest weatherman in Los Angeles; he also earned a Golden Mike Award for best weather segment from the esteemed Radio Television Digital News Association.

Kriski studied radio and television arts at Fanshawe College in London, Ontario. He came to the United States in 1991 after he accepted the position of weatherman on the KTLA Morning News. He’s one of the last-remaining original “characters” from the show’s inception.

As of 2012, Kriski has added the role of professional ring announcer to his resume for boxing and mixed martial arts (MMA); most notably for boxing champ Oscar De La Hoya and Golden Boy Promotions, and late, legendary hall-of-fame trainer Emanuel Steward’s Kronk Boxing. Kriski’s distinct voice can also be heard on radio and TV commercials.
