We've been wondering who would replace Charles since he announced in August that he was retiring on September 25, after 22 years leading the news program, and after almost 50 years total at CBS News.

Osgood, 83, is retiring after working almost 50 years at CBS News.

Before Charles Osgood could name Jane Pauley as his heir on "CBS Sunday Morning", the show's many contributors took an extended look back at the 50-year career of Osgood, who has helmed "CBS Sunday Morning" for more than 20 years.

The former "Today" co-host and anchor of "Dateline" on NBC has intermittently stood in for Osgood since she joined the show in April 2014 as a contributor.

Her first broadcast in the new gig will be on October 9.

Osgood, 83, announced his retirement plan last month, and Sunday was his final program.

Osgood will continue to make occasional appearances on "CBS This Morning".

Pauley is only the third host in the show's history, and the first not named Charles. Holt, who frequently competed against Osgood, spoke of his deep respect for the CBS anchor. "Charles Osgood is a television news legend-and so is Jane Pauley". "I look forward to bringing loyal viewers the kind of engaging, original reporting that has made the broadcast so irresistible for so long".

The hosts of NBC's "Today", ABC's "Good Morning America" and "CBS This Morning" saluted Osgood for his contributions.

Stories she's worked on for "Sunday Morning" include a profile of Hillary Clinton, a report on educators who lived through the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting and are trying to change gun laws, and an interview with David Letterman when he left late-night TV. And as is so often the case, they were right. She's the recipient of multiple Emmys, the Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Journalism, the Edward R. Murrow Award for outstanding achievement and the Gracie Allen Award from the Foundation of American Women in Radio & Television.

"A worthy successor and a flawless fit", Morrison said.

She asked aloud, "What will "Sunday Morning" be without his 'presence?' His calm demeanor? A worthy successor-and a ideal fit".
