Charles Kuralt announces retirement

Charles Kuralt announced that he’ll retire from his work at CBS News effective May 1, ending a 37-year affiliation with the network.

Kuralt will host his last “Sunday Morning” on April 3.

A replacement for that show has yet to be named, a network spokeswoman said.

Kuralt, 59, has hosted the weekly “CBS News Sunday Morning” show since its premiere in 1979, becoming almost synonymous with laid-back, soft news features via his “On the Road” segments. Those reports have been featured on the “CBS Evening News,” and Kuralt has frequently been involved in primetime chores, including recent pieces relating to the Winter Olympics.

He began his “On the Road” segments in 1967, and has since logged more than a million miles and visited every state. Kuralt’s honors include three Peabody Awards and 11 Emmys.
