Mitch Roberts

My name is Mitch Roberts and I am thrilled to be part of the KFSM-TV team. I've been married to my wonderful wife Leah for twelve years, and we have two beautiful daughters. I can't think of a better place that Northwest Arkansas to raise my kids. Other members of my family have already given this region a huge stamp of approval.

Three members of my family attended the University of Arkansas. Both of my sisters settled in Fayetteville after graduation, and so our girls will have plenty of cousins to play with. Landing the job at 5NEWS puts my family back together for the first time since the late 1980's.

I'm a graduate of Texas State University in San Marcos, TX. I have Anchor/Reporter experience in St. Louis, Nashville, Las Vegas, Dayton, Ohio, and most recently I was the Primary News Anchor/Reporter for KVII-TV in Amarillo, TX. While I feel blessed to have worked in some of those places, being here in Arkansas already feels like home. I will be based out of Fayetteville, but I'll drive anywhere with my trusty TV camera to tell the stories that matter to you.
