Jackie Johnson Wedding Flies Under Doppler Radar

Three months ago, Tony Pierce noticed a monumental ring on the engagement-wedding finger of CBS 2 weather gal Jackie Johnson. It was, he blogged, a “developing” story tinged quite possibly with (his) “infinite sadness.”

Last Friday, Pierce—formerly blog editor at the LA Times and now working in that same capacity at KPCC—was able to confirm his summer scoop, via Johnson’s posting of June Aruba Antigua wedding pictures on her Facebook page. It’s rather amazing that she was able to keep this all so quiet. Noted Pierce:

OK, so the busblog was two months late on the news, but do you know anyone else who even whispered about it? Anyways, congratulations Jackie Johnson. When you are telling us the news, we stop what we’re doing. Quite a trick when we’re talking about LA weather, which is generally lovely. Except for today.

Mark Kriski and Jennifer Gould Tie KTLA Knot

Here’s a picture worth a thousand TV weather forecasts:

It was taken shortly after KTLA weatherman Mark Kriski and station reporter Jennifer Gould got married Saturday September 24 on the sand in Huntington Beach. Officiating in a non-denominational, “officiant” capacity was TV and radio legend Charlie Van Dyke.

KTLA Co-Workers Mark Kriski and Jennifer Gould Are Engaged

 

KTLA‘s Jennifer Gould and Mark Kriski are ready to tie the knot. Kriski proposed yesterday and Gould tells Fishbowl LA he took her completely by surprise. “I was FLOORED [and] had no idea!! It was my birthday so that’s all I had anticipated celebrating!”

Congrats you crazy kids!

Wednesday’s Forecast: Final Surgery for KTLA’s Mark Kriski

This past Sunday, KTLA Morning News weatherman Mark Kriski celebrated his two-year anniversary with girlfriend and station colleague Jennifer Gould. Tomorrow, he is looking forward to another momentous event: the final bit of surgery related to his tenacious recovery from viral pneumonia.

“After everything that’s been done, the doctors just need to go back in and take a look, remove any dead tissue, and so on,” Kriski tells FishbowlLA this morning via telephone. “They’re estimating that I will be in the hospital for two days, and then back home for another ten days to two weeks of recovery.”

Mark Kriski Released from the Hospital After a Nearly Two-Month Stay

KTLA’s Mark Kriski has been released from Northridge Hospital and is back home recuperating from a more than two-month battle with viral pneumonia. “It looks like I’m out of the woods,” Kriski tells Fishbowl LA by phone, his voice strong but by no means fully recovered. “Hopefully third time is the charm.”

Kriski, who’s been in and out of the hospital a couple of times since before Thanksgiving,  says he had no ordinary case of viral pneumonia–it was an anti-biotic resistant strain, a Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococci (VRE) infection. What began with him catching an office-wide flu, soon morphed into something much worse. “One day [doctors] were trying Penicillin, the next day something else, the next day something else. Leslie Nielsen and Jack LaLanne just died of pneumonia. Thankfully I’m younger than both those guys, but this was quite a fight.”

Mark Kriski Still Hospitalized, But Recovering

Everyone has been wondering what’s up with KTLA weatherman Mark Kriski, who has been hospitalized with viral pneumonia for what seems like forever. Not only have we not seen him on the air, his last tweet was more than a month ago, shortly before he underwent surgery.

Last night, Kriski’s KTLA co-worker Jennifer Gould tweeted us a link to this Kriski status update by Eric Spillman–who spoke to Kriski in the hospital by phone–on KTLA’s news blog.

He told me today that he will likely be released from the hospital later this week.  Then he needs to spend a few weeks at home, taking it easy, and trying to build up his strength.  After that, he can think about coming back to work.

KTLA’s Mark Kriski Hospitalized Again For Viral Pneumonia

A little more than a week after getting out, KTLA weatherman Mark Kriski is back in the hospital for fluid buildup related to a wicked case of viral pneumonia. LA Observed caught KTLA reporter Jennifer Gould‘s tweet on Kriski’s status:

@jennifergould setback4 @markkriski. back in hospital w infeciton re pneumonia/fluid buildup. WILL B OK…but again will need more time to heal…

Bummer. Just a few days ago Kriski seemed to be feeling better and was asking FBLA for movie recommendations to pass the time until he recovered fully. Haven’t seen any tweets from him since. Looks like he’s going to need a few more picks. For some inexplicable reason we watched Home Alone last night and were more amused than we ever thought we would be. Give it go, Mark.

Mark Kriski Forecast: I’m NOT Leaving KTLA

On Thursday, October 21st, a pair of local media watch blogs – Southern California News Wire and SoCal Media Scoop – posted items suggesting that long-time KTLA Morning News weatherman Mark Kriski had been let go. But this morning, he was still on the air.

In response to a tweet yesterday from a follower asking, “Did Mark Kriski just get fired?”, colleague Eric Spillman responded this morning with the reply, “Don’ think so.”

Then, just an hour later, Kriski himself tweeted the full forecast: “Thanks, but NOT leaving KTLA… I’ll be doing 7a-10a instead of all 5hrs!”

In this case at least, the Career Storm Watch turned out to be all wet. Or, as another Kriski colleague, Jennifer Gould, suggested on her Twitter feed: “I hate when RUMOR gets in the way of the FACTS… Just sayin!”
