Kristi Gross was born and raised in Stockton and a proud Lincoln High School alumna. It was there she discovered her passion for journalism working on her school’s newspaper.

After years of being away and reporting in other communities she’s thrilled to be reporting in her home market! Kristi joined the FOX40 News team in November of 2018. Kristi looks forward to telling a variety of stories that reflect and highlight not only all the issues facing the Central Valley but also all the good work that is being done and the inspiring people doing it.

After graduating from California State University Northridge, Kristi got her start as a Reporter for KXXV, Central Texas News. While in Waco, she covered the deadly West fertilizer plant explosion and recovery, the Waco biker gang shoot out and a mass shooting at Fort Hood as well as the construction and opening of Baylor University’s new McLane Stadium. Kristi eventually worked her way up to being the Weekend Anchor.

Following her time at KXXV, Kristi then moved further across the county to Fort Myers in Southwest Florida as the Charlotte County Bureau Multimedia Journalist/ Reporter for WINK News. In her three years at WINK, Kristi covered a variety of stories from Hurricane Irma, to the Red Tide crisis, and the construction and installation of a Vietnam Memorial replica wall and learned to fly a plane for a story.

Despite Kristi’s various, cross-country moves, it was always her goal to return to California.

When Kristi isn’t working she is likely with family, friends or busy adding another stamp to her passport. Kristi is a world traveler and has been to five of the seven continents. She recently returned from a African Safari. She’s also traveled to 15 countries, including living in Gold Coast, Australia while studying abroad in college.
