The NH Union Leader reports longtime Boston news broadcaster Jim Mitchell was found dead in his Warner, NH store Wednesday June 4th.  WBZ Radio news director Peter Casey is quoted as saying they believe Mitchell collapsed between 8:00-9:15 a.m.

The article says Mitchell and his sister owned "Main Street Bookends," a book store in Warner.  His Boston radio debut was at WHDH in 1979, but he anchored weekend news at WBZ for a decade.  Mitchell was only 58.

Funeral arrangements are incomplete.
