This is so exciting! Juniata County’s Lia Mort is in it to win it, “it” being $200,000 and a new truck on CBS-TV’s “Tough As Nails”!

We caught up with Lia before episode five, which is the midway point of the show. If you missed any of the prior episodes, you can catch up here.

Anyway, Lia is just as nice in real life s she is on TV. She’s tough as nails but sweet as candy. Impressive woman. Listen below to the Merf morning Show’s exclusive interview with Lia!
