Chief Meteorologist Frank Mitchell Leaving KTUL

Frank Mitchell, the chief meteorologist at Tulsa ABC-affiliate KTUL, has announced that he is leaving the station next month for a job as a financial adviser.

“As anyone that works evenings can tell you, it can be hard to take on that shift with a family at home,” Mitchell said in a statement. “I really look forward to being more involved with my kids’ activities, maybe even coaching a little baseball.”

Mitchell was hired as a weekend meteorologist by KTUL in the early 1990s. He will sign off from the station on September 18.
