Cleveland NBC affiliate WKYC has hired Karina Mitchell. She is the wife of Russ Mitchell, who joined WKYC as primary anchor in January.
Like her husband, Mitchell comes from CBS News in New York, where she was an entertainment, lifestyle and feature contributor. She also served as a fill-in anchor for CBS Mobile News and a reporter for CBSNews.com. Most recently, she was the host of “Showbuzz,” a weekly movie review show.
At WKYC, Mitchell will be an arts, culture and entertainment contributor to “Live on Lakeside,” a lifestyle show hosted by Hollie Strano and Michael Cardamone. She will also contribute to WKYC’s newscasts.
