Meet Heather Burgiss
Producer & Host
Collards, bluegrass, whirligigs, the mountains, the coast, and a good dog…are just a few of her favorite things…
Proclaimed by the King of NASCAR, Richard Petty, as a “North Carolinian by proxy,” Emmy®-nominated and award-winning producer/host Heather Burgiss has been telling stories of her adopted home state on UNC-TV since June 2000.
With My Home, NC, Heather searches out unique and important voices in hometowns across North Carolina. Each episode gives a deeper glimpse and connection into the cultural fabric of communities through interesting people, food, music, and places that make you want to sit a spell, grab a bite, tap your toe, and reflect on all that’s special in the Land of the Long Leaf Pine.
When she’s not storytelling, Heather enjoys the outdoors and visiting the mountains with her husband, their three sons, and good dog, Ruby.
