The wonderful Charles Osgood, 83, announced this morning that, after 22 years as the broadcast’s anchor, he will be retiring next month. His last show – a special editor of Sunday Morning featuring lots of professional stock taking, interviews, and special guests – has been set for Sept. 25.
Fret not, though. The Peabody Award-winning National Association of Broadcasters Hall of Famer will continue to make the occasional appearance on our Sunday mornings, and he definitely will continue to see us on the radio. Osgood plans to remain as anchor of “The Osgood File,” the daily news commentaries CBS Radio Network show he has hosted since 1971.
I will miss you, Charlie! Thank you for helping me kick off my Sunday mornings nice the past 15 years.
