Lori Mitchell joined the News 2 team in 2007 as an anchor and reporter.
She grew up on the other side of the Tennessee border in Scottsville, KY and is thrilled to be working and living in Music City!
Lori started her broadcast career in her hometown of Scottsville where she anchored newscasts at WLCK-WVLE radio while still in high school.
After high school she enrolled at Western Kentucky University. Before she graduated she was anchoring newscasts for WBKO in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
Lori eventually became the primary anchor, bringing the news to viewers each night at 5 and 6 p.m.
Something many people may not know about Lori is that she won the title of Miss Kentucky USA in 2003 and competed in the nationally televised Miss USA pageant.
During her time in Nashville, Lori has covered some of the biggest stories in the city, including the devastating historic flood in 2010.
Lori is involved in numerous community organizations and has spent the last several years dedicated to supporting breast cancer awareness causes. She has been active with the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
When Lori isn’t working, you can find her running around one of Middle Tennessee’s beautiful parks, probably training for her next marathon. In her spare time, she and her husband enjoy traveling.
