“Everybody Has a Story”


Steve Hartman brings viewers moving stories from unique people he meets in his feature segment On the Road. Hartman is also well known for his multiple award-winning feature series, Everybody Has a Story. He proved the adage by tossing a dart at a map of America and randomly picking an interview subject. Hartman has produced more than 120 such pieces.


He has won dozens of prestigious awards for his work: an Alfred I. DuPont-Columbia University Award, three national Emmy awards and nine RTNDA/Edward R. Murrow awards.


Previously Hartman was a columnist for 60 Minutes Wednesday and a correspondent for two CBS news magazines, Public Eye with Bryant Gumbel (1997-98) and Coast to Coast (1996-97).


After graduating from Bowling Green State University in 1985 with a degree in broadcast journalism, Hartman began his career in Toledo at WTOL-TV as an intern and general assignment reporter.
