Tiffany Craig joined the KHOU 11 News team as a reporter in April 2010 and she's no stranger to the Bayou City.
One of her first memories of Houston was as a little girl, standing in the immigration line. Scotland didn’t have this heat and Tiffany's family was no match for a sticky summer. Then, a camera crew showed up and that line magically started moving.
Tiffany always wondered who the TV man was in the white suit and blue glasses that made her life easier that day. Years later, she would get to thank Marvin Zindler when her TV career started.
Tiffany is a graduate of North Shore High School on Houston's east side and went on to earn a bachelor's degree in Radio/Television/Film at Sam Houston State University.
She spent a year behind the scenes at KTRK ABC 13 before landing her first shot at reporting in Amarillo at KVII. Her television career continued with a move to Alabama. Tiffany worked in Birmingham at ABC 33/40 and then moved to WKRG Channel 5 in Mobile.
During her time at Channel 5, Tiffany won an Emmy, a National Edward R. Murrow Award, numerous Regional Murrows and Associated Press Awards too.
While being recognized for journalism excellence is wonderful, Tiffany says her true prize is getting to return to her hometown. She now feels right at home again in Kingwood.
When she's not chasing news, Tiffany is spending time with family and getting reacquainted with Houston.
Tiffany is always looking for story ideas and welcomes emails from viewers.
