After 50 Years, CBS Set Designer Bids Farewell

CBS News bid farewell last week to Victor Paganuzzi, the creator of CBS Sunday Morning set. Paganuzzi is retiring after 50 years with the network.

Paganuzzi began his career with CBS Television in December of 1962, assisting the set designer of “The Jackie Gleason Show.”

In 1974, Paganuzzi began a 25-year run at CBS News designing sets for primaries, elections and inaugurations. The most enduring and recognizable design appears every Sunday morning on CBS — the plexiglass flats and accompanying sun logo, which have remained unchanged since the show’s premiere in 1979.

On Wednesday, Paganuzzi went on “The Early Show” — the set for which he also created — to talk about his half-century at CBS.
