What happens when people with heart step up to do the right thing?

The Heart of Detroit is a groundbreaking public service initiative.

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. Subjects are interviewed live on Live in the D on Friday mornings and episodes are rerun during Flashpoint on Sunday mornings.
