CBS News Sunday Morning is an American television news magazine program created by Robert Northshield and original host Charles Kuralt. The program has aired continuously since January 28, 1979, on the CBS Television Network, airing in the Eastern US on Sunday from 9:00 to 10:30 a.m. The current host of the show is Charles Osgood, who took over from Kuralt upon his retirement on April 3, 1994, and has since surpassed Kuralt's tenure as host. The program was originally conceived to be a broadcast version of a Sunday newspaper magazine section, most typified by the Sunday New York Times Magazine. The format was conceived as the Sunday equivalent of the CBS Morning News, which following Sunday Morning's debut was retitled to reflect each day of the week, such as Monday Morning, Tuesday Morning, etc. (the Sunday edition, long after these daily editions ended, continued to display all seven days of the week in the opening sequence into the early 2000s).
