Mitch Weber joined the 41 Action News Team in April of 2012. He has been in the Kansas City area since 2011. One of Mitch's earliest memories is a family trip to Worlds of Fun when he was a kid.
Mitch grew up on a farm just outside of Junction City, KS. The TV broadcasting bug bit Mitch when he was 12 years old! He used the family's video camera to create his own newscasts. His parents still have the tapes and threaten Mitch to post them online to show everyone the start of his broadcast career.
After graduation, Mitch worked in Wichita briefly before heading to Wisconsin to start reporting full-time. He spent nine years in the cheese state. He reported and anchored in Green Bay, Madison, and in Wausau/Rhinelander before moving back closer to home in 2009.
His family was finally able to watch Mitch every night anchoring Topeka, but Mitch followed his goal since graduating to end up in Kansas City. Mitch plans to make Kansas City home and stay here until he retires.
Mitch is proud of many of the thousands of stories he has covered in his 12 years, but some that really stand out are covering Legendary Green Bay Packers' Brett Favre "first retirement," appearing with CNN's Anderson Cooper on 360, and covering the return of a Topeka Fire Fighters jailed in Haiti after the country's massive earthquake.
In his time away from the station you will see Mitch volunteering. He has given his time to Alphapointe for the Blind, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and Meals on Wheels.
