NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams, on the job since 2004, was selected yesterday as one of the Giants of Broadcasting at a ceremony in Manhattan.
Williams, who grew up in Middletown, New Jersey, worked at WCBS/Channel 2 earlier in his career.
Charles Osgood was honored as part of CBS’ Sunday Morning program. Osgood has hosted the iconic broadcast since 1994 when Charles Kuralt stepped down.
“We had an hour and a half, which is time enough to cover a lot of territory and you can devote a little time to things that otherwise you wouldn’t have time for,” Osgood says.
ABC’s This Week host Christiane Amanpour (above), the longtime CNN correspondent, was among the inductees.
