Nancy Grace returned home to Macon Sunday, just three days after ending her show on CNN HLN.
Dozens of her fans came out to the Macon Barnes & Noble to meet her and purchase signed copies of her new book.
She excitedly discussed the next chapter of her career with our Mary Grace Shaw.
She believes there is a new medium out there to help solve more homicides and find missing children.
“[There’s] digital apps, our cell phones, our iPads, and I really believe that that future is a way to do good in this world,” said Grace.
In the works is a crime television show that puts more of a focus on digital platforms.
“The last few cases that I cracked were cracked because of my Facebook page,” explained Grace.
But before she launches her next career move – which she hopes to present after the national election -- Grace came back to her hometown for a book signing.
One fan, Judy Heath, says Grace left an impact on the city.
“I have a niece who actually followed in Nancy’s footsteps,” said Heath. “[She] went on to Mercer Law School and she’s an attorney in the area.”
Grace says the impact is mutual.
“Macon crops up in practically every book that I write,” noted Grace before reminiscing about WMAZ’s first logo, Lucky the cat, and how the station would play Ray Charles before going off-air.
No matter where her career takes her, Grace says the heart of Georgia will always be her home.
“The thing about Macon is it’s so much a part of me that I never really feel like I’m away,” said Grace with a smile.
A portion of the proceeds from each of her books sold will go towards the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
