Happy Birthday ‘Sunday Morning’

Sunday MorningCBS News “Sunday Morning” turns 35 today.

The venerable CBS News program, which continues to see its best ratings in decades, went on the air on this day in 1979. Charles Kuralt hosted the show for its first 15 years and Charles Osgood has been at the helm for the last 20.

“Good morning. Here begins something new,” said Kuralt on that first Sunday morning.

“We dreamed up a program about music and art and nature,” said Kuralt. “Because of its necessary preoccupation with politics and wars and calamities, television journalism doesn’t get around to those gentler subjects very often.”
