You've seen Martha MacCallum on Fox News for years, hosting "The Story with Martha MacCallum" and co-anchoring the network's election coverage. But you rarely get to see a personal side of the star.

Earlier this week, Martha MacCallum joined the Fox News Rundown and opened up about her family and an uncle she never met

She has a new book out about World War Two specifically about the Pacific Front and where her uncle served and died. The book is called, "Unknown Valor: Story of Family, Courage, and Sacrifice from Pearl Harbor to Iwo Jima."

MacCullum, who is the host of her own podcast, "The Untold Story", explained to host Jessica Rosenthal why the project was so personal to her and the amount of research she put in to the book. She described speaking to old friends of her late uncle and even traveling to Iowa Jima to get perspective on what her uncle and others his generation experienced.

But before the host of 'The Story' talked about her book, she weighed in on some of the biggest stories of the week including Harvey Weinstein's rape and assault convictions in New York, the coronavirus and the 2020 election.

The conversation was both fun and candid, but it was long and we had to edit for it time.

On The Fox News Rundown Extra, you'll hear more from Fox News anchor Martha MacCaullum.
