WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) — The Trumbull Town Hall lecture series closed out its 44th annual Celebrity Series Wednesday morning with CBS News Correspondent Steve Hartman.

The Ohio native is the network’s “On the Road” correspondent. He travels the country, telling heartwarming stories.

Hartman addressed a crowd of people Wednesday at Packard Music Hall. The topic of Hartman’s lecture was “Everybody Has a Story.”

He said he was happy to be back in Warren.

“It feels great, um, the minute I step foot in this town, it’s comfort to me. Actually, any time I’m within about 200 miles of my hometown of Toledo, I just recognize the people. I know what they’re like, and it’s just comforting,” he said.

This is the third time that Hartman has been a part of the Trumbull Town Hall Celebrity Series. His previous talks at Packard Music Hall were in 2014 and 2017.
