This year marks the 50th anniversary of "The Osgood File," hosted by broadcast journalist and radio icon Charles Osgood. Fresh off receiving a "Lifetime Achievement Emmy Award" from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, Osgood celebrated this milestone by signing an extension to continue broadcasting "The Osgood File" with his longtime syndicator, Westwood One. The program is heard four times each weekday morning on hundreds of affiliates including WCBS-AM/New York, WBBM-AM/Chicago, KCBS-AM/San Francisco and WWJ-AM/Detroit.

"Charles Osgood is one of the most revered and adored icons in our industry, and since retiring from television in 2016, Westwood One is his exclusive broadcast home," said Suzanne Grimes, EVP Corporate Marketing, Cumulus Media and President, Westwood One. "His massive appeal and 'theater of the mind' storytelling style has engaged and entertained both listeners and advertisers for five decades! As one of his biggest fans, I am thrilled to continue our partnership with Charles and consider him an invaluable member of the Westwood One family."

"I've been broadcasting The Osgood File since 1967," added Osgood. "I'm delighted that Westwood One and I have agreed to keep our successful radio partnership going. It's been great working with their skilled broadcast professionals in the past and the present. And will be, I'm happy to say, in the future. Thanks to them I'll continue to 'see you on the radio.'"
