Craig Cannon, News AnchorCraig Cannon was born in Moses Lake, a small town in the state of Washington.Craig spent most of his formative years in California and Arizona.However, he did live in Pretoria, South Africa, for four years where his father was a missionary.
Craig Cannon"Some of my best childhood memories come from those four years in South Africa," he says."I truly believe that the best education anyone can get, besides school, is to travel.It's a life-changing event to experience different cultures and meet so many wonderful people from all over the world."
Cannon says that his life really took on a new meaning when he crossed the Arkansas River and settled in Fort Smith.He said it was the beginning of the best years of his life.Cannon came to KHBS/KHOG-TV in October 1983, as the main anchor and reporter for the fledgling dual-station news operation.
"My main duties were confined to reporting and anchoring the evening news," he says.
But Craig was soon named news director, and later became vice president and director of news with the Hernreich Broadcasting Company.Although Craig admits meeting the responsibilities of both jobs was at times challenging, to say the least, they've rewarded him beyond expectation.
"That's one thing I can say without hesitation," he says."At least I am fortunate enough to be one of those people in life that loves their job.Life is too short to do something you don't love."
Craig also says that it's been his pleasure to hire so many fine young professionals over the years and that he will never be able to adequately express how truly proud he is of their accomplishments.
At the end of 1998, Cannon decided to retire from his duties as News Director to spend more time with his family.
"After 12 years of working in a dual role, I feel I can now dedicate myself to my priorities: my spiritual life, my family and my career behind the anchor desk," he says.
As many viewers know, Cannon has had a long struggle with an affliction known as "Bell's palsy".Craig says that "that's one big reason this locality is so special to me.I can never adequately thank the many, many viewers who have supported me with their kindness, their letters of encouragement, and especially their prayers over the years."
Craig's wife Cheryl is a native of Fort Smith.He has two daughters, Ashley and Rachel.
"My No. 1 priority is my wife and two daughters," he says.
Craig also loves golf, and he enjoys working around the house as a sort of handyman.He also enjoys reading books, especially biographies and the currently popular religious series "Left Behind."Additionally, Craig always looks forward to speaking engagements and helping out charitable causes in any way possible.
Cannon graduated from Oral Roberts University with a Bachelor of Science in Communications in 1981.He then took jobs at KJRH-TV in Tulsa, KOAM-TV in Joplin, KTUL-TV in Tulsa, before moving to 40/29.
