Octogenarian Osgood Gets Plaqued

Dial Global show host hits the big 8–0

Charles Osgood, known for his “The Osgood File” TV and radio stories recently celebrated his 80th birthday.

Osgood’s radio program syndicator, Dial Global, presented the new octogenarian with a commemorative plaque.

The plaque features a semi-serious quote from Osgood’s father, Charles Osgood Wood II (Osgood’s full name is Charles Osgood Wood III). It reads:

Early to bed,
Early to rise.
Work like a dog and advertise.

“The Osgood File” started on CBS Radio in 1971. Osgood also hosts CBS TV’s “CBS News Sunday Morning.” In addition he has anchored several CBS news programs.
