Charles Osgood, who has said "good morning" to his audience every Sunday for 22 years, will say "goodbye" as host of "CBS News Sunday Morning." He announced his Sept. 25 departure on Sunday's edition.
But he assured his viewers he won't be absent from the program after that, explaining he will make occasional appearances.
No successor was announced.
The 83-year-old Osgood is exiting a job only one other person has held since "Sunday Morning" premiered in 1979. Charles Kuralt retired in 1994 after hosting for 15 years.
Osgood was already a CBS veteran. Since joining in 1971, he has been an anchor and reporter for many CBS News broadcasts on both TV and radio. He has long delivered "The Osgood File" on radio, and will continue to do so.
