Rikki Mitchell is a reporter for TODAY'S TMJ4 and joined the station in July 2016.
She comes to the station after spending four years at KGUN9-TV in Tucson, Ariz. There, she worked as an assignment editor, multimedia journalist and reporter.
Rikki is a graduate of the University of Arizona, where she majored in Broadcast Journalism and minored in Spanish. During college, she interned at local TV stations and the Arizona Daily Star where she was awarded one of the competitive NASA Space Grant internships. She also spent a summer in high school interning at the NASA Dryden Flight Research Center in southern California.
Her love of journalism started much earlier though, when she wrote for her elementary school's newspaper. At age 12, she began dreaming of working for a TV station and never looked back.
Rikki is excited to call Milwaukee home and is looking forward to finally experiencing seasons! In her free time, she enjoys spending time outdoors, reading and practicing yoga.
