Macon native Nancy Grace returns home, talks future plans

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.
