Where is Mark Kriski?

Having become a renowned part of the KTLA team over the years, fans were worried last week after the weather anchor didn’t appear on the morning show.

Following fans’ concerns online Mark Kriski’s wife, Jennifer Gould, has reassured viewers as she announced he is well but taking a break from his on-screen role.

Last Monday, Gould tweeted: “For everyone asking: hubby @MarkKriski is great… just taking some R&R time off. He’ll be back
@KTLAMorningNews in a few weeks!!”

This isn’t the first time viewers have been concerned about the veteran anchor. Last year, Kriski had time off after he fell and hit his head.

At the time, Gould updated KTLA viewers on Twitter as she announced her husband had suffered concussion.
