John H. Mitchell

One of the very few well-versed in all aspects of television. From signing up sponsor advertisers, station and affiliate relations, production and programming, selling to the networks, dealing with creatives, getting it done; when you had a problem, John usually knew the answer. Described by one peer as "a strand of DNA through television", he was unique, and truly loved the business he was in.
