Katie Couric Cannot Say Enough Good Things About Rome Hartman

By Brian 

Rome Hartman, who helped to create and led the broadcast from January 2006, will move into a key new assignment at CBS News. Details will be announced soon,” the network says.
On her blog, Katie Couric is heaping praise on Hartman:

“He is truly one of the ‘good guys,’ a man of integrity, character and honor. In the TV news business, those characteristics are too often mutually exclusive. But Rome is the living embodiment of those things. He’s also a guy of great intelligence, dedication and –- importantly — fun. He made all of us work harder, and shine brighter, and made us proud of what we do.”

She continues: “It’s been such a privilege to have him by my side these last six months. He’s been a wonderful partner as I’ve embarked on this new chapter in my life. I’m so grateful for his indefatigability and perseverance. And it’s not surprising to me that he has handled his departure with typical grace, classiness and humor.”
