In that time, she has hosted and produced two seasons of Reporters Roundtable, hosted a live community forum on safety in schools, produced and appeared in segments of Let’s Go! and starred in a two-part summer series, Tracy Tries It. She has also contributed stories to PBS39 News Tonight as a special correspondent. Yatsko has been a brain injury awareness advocate and public speaker for nearly a decade.
