Dawn Mitchell

Dawn grew up in the middle of a family of boys, literally. With two older brothers and two younger brothers, she says that “Explains a lot!” about her. She played three different sports in high school and managed to fit dance in too. Dawn reports and anchors for FOX 9 Sports and hosts “FOX 9 Sports Now” on Friday and Saturday nights. She’s also been covering the Vikings for over a decade. Here’s a fun fact: Dawn is ambidextrous; which means she can use one hand to type her stories and the other to eat or do whatever. Comes in pretty handy when she’s on deadline!
