Broadcasting legend Charles Osgood dies at 91

TV and radio broadcasting legend Charles Osgood passed away at the age of 91, according to CBS News, which reported that his family indicated that dementia was the cause of his death.

Osgood is widely known for anchoring "CBS Sunday Morning" for more than two decades. He was a fixture on the radio for more than four decades.

"To say there's no one like Charles Osgood is an understatement," noted "Sunday Morning" executive producer Rand Morrison, according to CBS News. "He embodied the heart and soul of 'Sunday Morning.' His signature bow tie, his poetry … just his presence was special for the audience, and for those of us who worked with him. At the piano, Charlie put our lives to music. Truly, he was one of a kind – in every sense."

CBS News noted that Jane Pauley, who became the host of "CBS Sunday Morning" when Osgood departed in 2016, said, "Watching him at work was a masterclass in communicating. I'll still think to myself, 'How would Charlie say it?', trying to capture the elusive warmth and intelligence of his voice and delivery. I expect I'll go on trying. He was one of the best broadcast stylists and one of the last. His style was so natural and unaffected it communicated his authenticity. He connected with people. Watching him on TV, or listening on the radio, as I did for years, was to feel like you knew him, and he knew you. He brought a unique sensibility, curiosity and his trademark whimsy to 'Sunday Morning,' and it endures."

Osgood was the voice of the narrator on the animated 2008 movie, "Horton Hears a Who!"
