After 18 years as chief meteorologist at KOCO in Oklahoma City, Rick Mitchell is moving to Dallas to join KXAS.

Mitchell replaces Jennifer Lopez, who left the NBC O&O earlier this year. In a statement announcing his hire, KXAS said Mitchell’s on-air responsibilities and start date will be announced in the coming weeks.

Prior to joining KOCO in 1993, Mitchell worked as a meteorologist at WOI in Des Moines and at AccuWeather in State College, PA.
