Steve Hartman “Amazing Kids”

 Tuesday, July 23, 2019 
8:15pm-10:00pm  
Hoover Auditorium

Steve Hartman, Emmy Award-winning “CBS News” contributor and longtime Lakesider, will return to Hoover Auditorium to share his favorite stories featuring youth who have made a difference in the lives of others. He will be joined onstage by special guest, Toledo teen Myles Eckert, who was featured in one of Hartman’s pieces four years ago.

Hartman travels the country for his weekly feature, “On the Road,” airing Fridays on “CBS Evening News” and repeats on “CBS Sunday Morning.”

In addition to his regular “On the Road” segment, Hartman is known for his award-winning series, “Everybody Has a Story.” In this series, Hartman would throw a dart at a map and then randomly choose an interview subject from the location’s local phone book. Running for seven years after beginning in 1998, Hartman produced more than 120 pieces in this series.

Due to the success of “Everybody Has a Story,” Hartman upped the series to a global scale in 2010 with “Everybody in the World Has a Story,” which began with an astronaut at the International Space Station. Following the original concept, Hartman would spin a globe and point to a random location to travel to and find a story. In just one month, he traveled completely around the world twice.

Before joining “CBS News,” Hartman developed his passion for human interest stories while he was a feature reporter for a CBS station in Los Angeles. Hartman also worked as a columnist for “60 Minutes Wednesday” and was a correspondent for two primetime “CBS News” shows, “Public Eye with Bryant Gumbel” and “Coast to Coast.”

Hartman graduated from Bowling Green State University in 1985 with a degree in broadcast journalism. His career began at WTOL in Toledo where he worked as a news intern and general assignment reporter.
