Charles Osgood to receive NAB Distinguished Service Award

Charles Osgood, anchor of “CBS News Sunday Morning” and of CBS Radio Network's “The Osgood File,” will be honored with the NAB Distinguished Service Award during NAB2008.

The award will be presented during the All Industry Opening Keynote April 14 in Las Vegas.

Known as CBS News' "poet-in-residence," Osgood has anchored “Sunday Morning,” considered one television's highest quality programs, since 1994 and has been called "one of the last great broadcast writers" by his “Sunday Morning” predecessor, Charles Kuralt. Every week, Osgood closes “Sunday Morning” with his signature "I'll see you on the radio," where his voice is known to millions who tune in to his daily news commentary on “The Osgood File” on CBS Radio Networks.

Before joining CBS News in September 1971, Osgood was an anchor/reporter for WCBS News Radio 88 in New York City. Prior to that, he worked for ABC News, was the general manager of WHCT-TV Hartford, CT, and the program director and manager of WGMS-FM Radio in Washington, D.C.

Each year, the NAB Distinguished Service Award recognizes broadcasters who have made significant and lasting contributions to the broadcasting industry.
