The Heart of Detroit is a groundbreaking public service initiative. Airing weekly during Local 4 News (Detroit) at 5 p.m. and then on MitchAlbom.com, The Heart of Detroit will share inspiring stories of metro Detroiters with heart and everyday people who step up to help make our community a better place to live. Viewers will follow Mitch through documentary-style videos as he profiles unsung local heroes who spend countless hours sacrificing to make others less hungry, less troubled, less impoverished or just a little happier.
"I have been taught that giving is living, I see so many people in metro Detroit who live -- and give -- that way, but are never celebrated the way we do a rock star, actor, athlete or even a reality show figure. These unsung inspirations deserve to have their stories told. And that's what I hope to do."
The Heart of Detroit is produced by Fat Dog Entertainment.
