KRQE Chief Meteorologist
Mark Ronchetti has been the Chief Meteorologist for KRQE news 13 and FOX New Mexico since 2006. Mark grew up in Shelburne, Vermont skiing and climbing mountains. His family had the news on every night at the kitchen table and that’s where he first developed an appreciation for news and more specifically weather. Mark is still an avid skier and hiker. He has long been fascinated by snow and mountains. Mark often hops in his truck when a snow storm moves in and heads to the northern mountains just to watch the storm. The only thing that occupies Mark’s thoughts more than New Mexico weather is the Dallas Cowboys. Mark firmly believes he can influence the outcome of Cowboy games from his couch.
Mark went to college at Washington State University and has a seal of approval from the American Meteorological Society. In addition to New Mexico, his broadcasting career has included stops in Colorado and Oregon. Mark spends every moment he can with his wife Krysty and two daughters Ava and Ella. He also has two dogs, Siberian huskies Maverick and Scout.
