WESTWOOD ONE's "THE OSGOOD FILE" is marking its 40th anniversary this year. The syndicator says that the feature, heard four times daily on over 350 stations including all of the top-25 markets, is the "longest running news/talk feature on radio."
"To this day, I believe radio connects with people in a way that no other media has been able to duplicate," said host CHARLES OSGOOD. "It's where I began my career in journalism and I am delighted to still be a part of the daily lives of so many radio listeners."
"It takes a special kind of broadcaster to be at the top of his game after four decades on the air," said WESTWOOD ONE EVP/Network News and Talk BART TESSLER. "It's a great pleasure to work with a legendary journalist who has truly mastered the art of informing while entertaining."
