KTVI reporter Mitch McCoy is leaving local news to work for the St. Louis Police Department.

“The St. Louis Metropolitan #Police Department just made the announcement,” McCoy posted to social media. “I couldn’t be more excited to keep working in a city where my family roots are. I’m honored for the opportunity to lead the department’s Public Affairs and Information Division. I’m incredibly thankful for my time at FOX 2. It’s been a privilege to work alongside an incredible team.”

McCoy joined the St. Louis Fox affiliate in 2023 from Little Rock, Arkansas NBC affiliate KARK.
