NAB says Charles Osgood, anchor of “CBS News Sunday Morning” and of CBS Radio Network’s “The Osgood File,” will be honored with its Distinguished Service Award during next spring’s NAB Show.
The award will be presented during the All-Industry Opening Keynote, April 14 in Las Vegas.
Known as CBS Radio’s “poet in residence,” Osgood has anchored “Sunday Morning” since 1994. He has received the Paul White Award from the Radio-Television News Directors Association for lifetime contribution to electronic journalism; and the Walter Cronkite Excellence in Journalism Award from Arizona State University in 2005.
Osgood was inducted into the Broadcasting and Cable Hall of Fame in 2000, as well as the NAB Hall of Fame in 1990.
