Jane Pauley will take over as anchor of CBS Sunday Morning for the retiring Charles Osgood, Pauley announced during the news program's Sept. 25 broadcast.

The change is not unexpected, as Osgood revealed on Aug. 25 that Sept. 25 would be his last show, and veteran journalist Pauley has been a contributor to the news magazine show since 2014.

Osgood will continue to host The Osgood File, his daily news commentary show for the CBS Radio Network, and will occasionally contribute to Sunday Morning.

Pauley's first broadcast as anchor will be Oct. 9. She's the third anchor in Sunday Morning's 37-year history -- Osgood took over in 1994 from original anchor Charles Kuralt. She previously hosted Today from 1976 to 1989 and Dateline NBC from 1992 to 2003.
