You Choose, Steve Hartman Reports

CBS Evening News with Katie Couric is giving you a direct say in what makes the broadcast.

You, the viewer, are officially in charge of all the assignments of CBS News correspondent Steve Hartman. You get to tell him where to go and what to do — within reason, of course.

Every Friday we present three story pitches and you get to vote for the story you think sounds most interesting. Whichever story gets the most votes by 12 a.m. ET on Sunday is the winner.
This week's story choices are:

What do our troops in Iraq really need? If you guessed ukuleles, you're right. Steve could meet the women who've sent more than 800 so far and ask them the obvious question — "why?"

Which state park has $50,000 diamonds just lying around for the taking? Send Steve to find out.

Thanksgiving is almost here, and it's never been a better time to be a turkey — at least a wild one. Steve could report on the latest efforts to save them ... from your dinner plate.

Those are this week's choices. Click below to cast your vote for whichever story you'd like to see on the air. We'll let you know Monday where Steve is headed, and then show the actual story Friday on the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric.

Note: If you have a popup blocker you may not see the "you have successfully voted" window on your screen but rest assured your vote has been counted.
