Craig Herrera grew up in the Pojoaque Valley, about eight miles north of Santa Fe, N.M., where he loved to sit outside and watch the clouds, the monsoon, the snow storms and always a great lightning storm. He was always a "news junkie," watching the news with his family and reading newspapers, so he combined the two later in life and now he is in beautiful San Diego forecasting and reporting at 10News.
When he's not enjoying time with friends and family, you'll find Craig riding his bicycle on the roads across San Diego County. He's also a certified Group Exercise Instructor and Spinning Instructor. Craig loves to follow his passions, including caring for dogs. He has three canines at home, which he calls his "kids." He has two 70-pound Rhodesian Ridgebacks (Kaia and Cooper) and the ruler of the house, Sasha, a 17-pound Lhasa Apso. Craig also studied Canine Animal Behavior with one of the best animal behaviorists in the country, Trish King at the Marin Humane Society in Marin County, Calif.
Craig was excited to join the great team at KGTV/10News in 2011. He came from KNTV/NBC Bay Area (San Jose, San Francisco, Oakland), where he served as the weekday morning meteorologist. While at KNTV, he and the morning team earned four Emmy nominations and one Emmy award for "Best Daytime Newscast in a Larger Market." Craig also had stops at KDVR in Denver and KFSN in Fresno.
Craig graduated from the University of New Mexico with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and Mass Communication. He completed his Meteorology studies through Mississippi State University, and later earned the American Meteorological Society's Seal of Approval.
