NEW YORK (AP) - CBS News is reaching back into its history to bring back the “On the Road” feature.

Reporter Steve Hartman takes over for the late Charles Kuralt (koo RAWLT). CBS said Friday that Hartman will search across the country for unusual features.

His first story, on the “CBS Evening News” Friday, finds a group of men who hoisted a replica of the Statue of Liberty on a railroad pier in the Susquehanna River in Pennsylvania 25 years ago. It remains standing today.

Starting in 1967, Kuralt spent much of his time exploring the nation’s back roads for stories. He and his crew logged more than a million miles on an old motor home, and filed more than 600 stories.
