Kaj Goldberg is a native of Los Angeles. He grew up in Tarzana, California, as a child and remained in the San Fernando Valley, graduating from Taft High School. He and his family have recently moved to Pasadena.

After living abroad in Europe for almost five years, Kaj decided to return home to California to pursue a bachelor’s degree in communications from the University of San Francisco, where he combined his studies with his love of surfing, skiing and mountain biking.

Upon graduation, Kaj headed back home to Los Angeles, where he began working in the film and television industry. He rose quickly through the ranks of Fox TV, Paramount Television and MTV as a studio executive. But his love of news made him give up his studio career, and the journalism bug bit hard.

He was hired by CBS News in Palm Springs in 2002, and after just a year and a half, Kaj moved to the ABC affiliate in Phoenix, Arizona, as weather anchor/reporter. He then worked for CBS2 in Los Angeles before joining the KTLA weather team in 2015.

On his off days, Kaj enjoys practicing yoga with his wife or spending as much time as possible with his three children.
