Katie’s Debut: “Imagine In 6 Months What Ass We’ll Be Kicking,” Hartman Says

CBSNews.com has behind-the-scenes details:

‘I have to interview the president tomorrow, so I can’t have too much,’ Couric joked.

Evening News Executive producer Rome Hartman praised Couric’s performance and then tossed a verbal bouquet to the news staff for a smooth production.

‘We’ve all looked forward to this day, but this is really day one,’ Hartman said. ‘Imagine in six months what ass we will be kicking.’”
