A Class Act


Chicago area native KRISTYN HARTMAN has been named General Assignment Reporter for WBBM/CBS 2 Chicago. Hartman has served as per diem general assignment reporter for CBS 2 since September, 2004. Before joining CBS 2, Hartman served as anchor/reporter for WCCB-TV in Charlotte, NC (2001-2004). Prior to that, she worked for KTVK-TV in Phoenix, AZ as a reporter (1997-2000) and at WMBD-TV in Peoria, IL as an anchor/reporter (1993-1997). She began her broadcasting career at KSNF-TV in Joplin, MO as an anchor/reporter in 1993. Hartman graduated from the school of communication at Northwestern University in 1992. She lives in Chicago with her husband. In her spare time Hartman enjoys reading and cooking.

Congratuations to a talented reporter and good person. Kristyn was the 5PM anchor at WMBD when I first started. You knew she was going to go far, not just because she was talented, but because she was always pushing herself. Before I started getting fill in work, she came in on a weekend (as a favor to me) to cut an anchor audition, so I would have the on set interaction segments that news directors look for on resume tapes. I wouldn't be suprised to see her start filling in on the anchor desk up there in the near future.
