"I cannot wait to be a weekday morning anchor alongside @KellyRippin @StevenAlbritton and @RandiRicoWLWT back at @WLWT," Mitchell tweeted.  "Cincinnati is a culture like no other. It's the place in this universe where I feel most myself. My happiest! My home!"

“We’re excited to welcome Megan back to the WLWT News 5 team. Her knowledge and absolute love of Cincinnati will further strengthen WLWT’s coverage of the biggest stories and community events our viewers rely on every day,” said WLWT News Director Jeff Benscoter on the station's website.
