CBS Sunday Morning

December 11, 2011 by staff 

CBS Sunday Morning, CBS News said on Friday that it had renewed its contract with Charles Osgood, the long-time anchor of “CBS Sunday Morning,” and had promoted one of the show’s contributors, Mo Rocca.

A CBS spokesman confirmed that Mr. Osgood had signed a new contract, but declined the specify the length of it. Earlier this fall, when the correspondent Lee Cowan, 46, returned to the network from NBC, he was named a substitute anchor for Mr. Osgood, who has anchored “Sunday Morning” since 1994.

Mr. Rocca, a satirist who has contributed to the program since 2006, will become a full-time correspondent, the network said in a news release. He will also report for other CBS News broadcasts. Separately, he will remain a panelist on NPR’s “Wait Wait … Don’t Tell Me!” and the host of the Cooking Channel’s “Food(ography).”

Mr. Rocca’s most recent segment for “Sunday Morning,” on Nov. 27, looked at pet custody battles. Its title: “Bone of Contention.” He’ll be back on the broadcast on Sunday with a segment about warm-up comics for television shows like “Hot in Cleveland,” “The Martha Stewart Show” and CBS’s “The Late Show with David Letterman.” Mr. Rocca knows the topic well, having spent four seasons each on “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart” and “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.”
