The Weather Channel
Mitchell was brought on by the Weather Channel in July 2004.
In January 2011, the Weather Channel terminated Mitchell. Mitchell filed a lawsuit against the Weather Channel in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia in 2011, alleging that she had been terminated because the new owners disapproved of the time required by her simultaneous duties as a captain in the U.S. Air Force Reserve as one of the "Hurricane Hunters" team. Such reserve duties are protected by U.S. law. She also accused NBC bosses of making explicit complaints about her military service schedule, creating a "hostile working environment", and discriminating against her rights as a member of the armed services.
Al Jazeera America
In July 2013 it was announced that Mitchell would be part of the weather team at Al Jazeera America. Mitchell delivered the weather segments in the morning from 7 am to 9 am Eastern and during large weather events.
She was the chief meteorologist of the channel until it ceased operation on April 12, 2016.
