KTLA’s Mark Kriski Was Hosptialized For Viral Pneumonia: Still Recovering

Yikes. For those of you who have been wondering what happened to KTLA weatherman Mark Kriski, he’s been battling a severe case of viral pneumonia for nearly a month. It got so bad he was hospitalized for three and a half weeks, but was finally let out a few days after Thanksgiving and is now recovering at home. KTLA has set up a page on its website to offer electronic get well messages.

KTLA says Kriski will definitely be returning to work, but they don’t have any idea when. Kriski suggests, via Twitter, it could still be a couple of weeks. He also advises folks to get their flu shots.
