KTLA Weathercaster Suffers 'Stroke' Weeks After Fellow Reporter Dies from Heart Attack

KTLA weathercaster Mark Kriski suffered reportedly suffered a stroke just weeks after longtime entertainment reporter for the station, Sam Rubin, died from a heart attack.

Kriski’s wife and KTLA reporter Jennifer Gould said her husband had a stroke early on Monday morning while at their home in Los Angeles.

The death scare comes weeks after the death of longtime entertainment reporter Sam Rubin.

Rubin died of a heart attack at his home in Hollywood at just 64 years old.

Gould said her husband could still communicate and was “on the mend.”

KTLA said Kriski has been receiving top medical care and is excited to rejoin the news team once he is fully recovered.

The Daily Mail reported: Kriski, who hails from Montreal, Canada, began his career on radio before moving in front of the camera on Canada’s Weather Channel, according to his website.

After doing other work as a weathercaster on television in Canada, he made his break into the US market by accepting an offer to be the KTLA Morning Show weatherman for its launch in 1991.

He usually covers the morning forecasts from 7 to 11 a.m.

Over his career, Kriski has earned nine Emmy Awards and an Associated Press Radio–Television Award.

Gould added that she and Kriski didn’t immediately share news of his stroke with his KTLA coworkers, as many of them are still dealing with the loss of their colleague, KTLA’s popular entertainment reporter Sam Rubin, who also joined the station for its 1991 launch.

Sam was known for often hosting KTLA’s Academy Awards coverage, and he hosted his own talk show, Hollywood Uncensored.

Rubin was at his Hollywood home earlier in May when he suffered a fatal heart attack just hours after he did his regular news segment.

He was taken to UCLA West Hills via ambulance, but he was pronounced dead upon arrival.

In addition to his work for KTLA, Rubin also made regular appearances on This Morning in the UK in 2018.

After his death was announced, KTLA shared a tribute to the late reporter, nothing that his “laugh, charm and caring personality touched all who knew him.”

“KTLA 5 is profoundly saddened to report the death of Sam Rubin. Sam was a giant in the local news industry and the entertainment world, and a fixture of Los Angeles morning television for decades.”

“His laugh, charm and caring personality touched all who knew him. Sam was a loving husband and father: the roles he cherished the most. Our thoughts are with Sam’s family during this difficult time,” the channel wrote on X.
