Mitch Weber is the newest reporter for KSHB, the NBC-affiliate in Kansas City.

“I’m really excited to get started,” he told Bottom Line Communications. “I’ve always said the KC market is my ‘network’ dream. I plan to stay here and retire.”

Weber was most recently a freelance reporter at WDAF, the Fox-affiliate in Kansas City. He has previously worked at KSNT in Topeka, WGBA in Green Bay, WKOW in Madison and WAOW in Wausau, WI. His first day at KSHB was yesterday.
