Have you ever seen a television news live truck with its satellite up in your neighborhood and wondered what happens inside that cramped tin can on wheels? Well, Mara MacDonald, veteran reporter with WDIV Channel 4, Detroit’s NBC affiliate, talks with us about traveling from story to story in the live truck during the evening shift. During this episode, she also  gets into what it’s like to cover public corruption and mass casualty events; debunks myths about television news being glamorous and offers some advice to women aspiring to be television journalists.
