- KCRAFirst Alert Weather Forecaster, present
Tamara Berg joined the KCRA 3 weather team in December of 2011 after three years forecasting at KION-TV in Salinas.
Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio., Tamara is happy to call Northern California her new home.
While at KION, Tamara tracked just about every type of weather condition. She also reported on mudslides, wildfires, earthquakes and the tsunami that swept across the shores of Santa Cruz in March 2011.
Tamara started her career in Toledo, Ohio, as a weekend weathercaster and weekday general assignment reporter. While in Toledo, Tamara covered extreme snowfall events, chased summer thunderstorms and river flooding.
Tamara holds a B.A. in Broadcast Journalism from Baldwin-Wallace College and a B.S. in Meteorology from Mississippi State University. Tamara is also a member of the American Meteorological Society and National Weather Association.
In her spare time, Tamara loves to run. She’s completed the Big Sur International Marathon two times and looks forward to running the California International Marathon every December. Tamara also enjoys hiking, trail runs, biking and snowboarding. She would also like to eventually get her pilots license.
Tamara also volunteers her time to the American Heart Association, SPCA and enjoys visiting local schools to teach kids all about weather.
She looks forward to enjoying all that Northern California has to offer, especially the hot summers by the rivers and lakes along with cold winters in the Tahoe snow.
