Craig Cannon

...
Craig 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, almost four years, where his father and mother were missionaries.
Some of my best childhood memories come from those 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 experience to learn about different cultures and meet so many wonderful people from all over the world."
Cannon says that his life really took on 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. Craig is celebrating 30 years with KHBS/KHOG-TV in 2013. Cannon came to KHBS/KHOG-TV in October 1983, as the main anchor and reporter for the then fledgling dual-station news operation.
"My main duties were confined to reporting and anchoring the evening news," he says. From the start -- Cannon says he was convinced the ownership/management at 40/29 were very serious about assembling a team of journalists and staff to make this station number one! The leader in the market serving the needs of the viewers in Northwest Arkansas and Eastern Oklahoma.
Soon after arriving at the station Craig was 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 the management and on-air talent duties was at times challenging, to say the least, he was rewarded beyond his expectations.
"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."
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 said. 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 says since his daughters Rachel and Ashley have grown up and left the house, those moments are pretty special when he sees them now. However, he still has two dogs he rescued at the shelter by his side all the time. "It's like having kids who never grow up, and no matter what my mood is when I walk in the door, they are so excited to see me that it just puts a smile on my face. One more pet to mention -- his youngest daughter Rachel brought home a little kitty saying, "Dad, we have a cat now! Craig responded, "We? "You're moving to Nashville!"
Craig spends his spare time playing golf and reading books -- especially biographies and inspirational themes. Plus he loves to travel just as much now as when he was a young boy. In fact he says to celebrate his 30 years at 40/29 -- he'd love to go back to South Africa soon and maybe even help out for a few weeks with a Mission there.
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 and KTUL-TV in Tulsa before moving to 40/29.
