Mitch McCoy is an award-winning investigative journalist who fights to expose wrongdoing and hold the powerful accountable.
He joined FOX 2 News in April 2023 after spending nearly eight years in Little Rock, Arkansas where he was an investigative reporter and breaking news anchor at KARK-TV. He briefly stepped away from TV news in 2019 to work as a law enforcement media specialist but returned to KARK 4 News in 2020.
Mitch’s reporting has led him across the country to cover countless tornadoes, multiple hurricanes, and Arkansas’ mass executions.
In 2016, the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Mid-America Chapter awarded Mitch and others for their severe weather coverage during a tornado outbreak. During a 2021 investigation, Mitch uncovered how an Arkansas judge was denying defendants the public defender. Mitch was asked to testify before state lawmakers to provide insight into the issue. The judge was later reprimanded by the State Supreme Court. Mitch’s reporting was recognized with a Regional Edward R. Murrow Award for Investigative Reporting.
Mitch is excited about living and working in St. Louis because it’s where most of his family roots are.
