CBS Sunday Morning host Charles Osgood has died at the age of 91.
The star, who also helmed long-running radio show The Osgood File, died on Tuesday at his home in New Jersey.
His family shared the sad news with CBS, confirming his cause of death as dementia.
Sunday Morning executive producer Rand Morrison said of the loss: ‘To say there’s no one like Charles Osgood is an understatement.
‘He embodied the heart and soul of ‘Sunday Morning.’ His signature bow tie, his poetry … just his presence was special for the audience, and for those of us who worked with him. At the piano, Charlie put our lives to music. Truly, he was one of a kind – in every sense.’
Ingrid Ciprian-Matthews, president of CBS News, added: ‘Charles Osgood is one of the legendary journalists who made CBS News what it is today.
‘His commitment to the craft, especially to the art of writing, left an indelible impression on the field. He was a mentor and friend to many. His impact will be felt on CBS News for decades to come.’
