Rome Hartman

April 14 - Today on the mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu we're joined by BBC World News America EP Rome Hartman.

Hartman previously was the EP of the CBS Evening News — we'll talk to him about the difference between producing for an American and a British network (of course, he's based in D.C.).

Oh, and for all the anti-Twitterers out there — Hartman is on your side.

We talked about the popularity of emo-anchors. "Anchors are human beings, and if something is real and emotion is real, and frankly the events or news that produces that emotion are real, it's hugely powerful, and it's appropriate," says Hartman. "Where I have a problem with it is when it's manufactured more to draw an audience or as part of a business plan...I aspire to never have anyone cry on our program ever again. If it happens and it's real, fine."
