1983: Kuralt's "On the Road" Goes Primetime
June 26, 2012  | By Christy Slewinski
 
On this day in 1983, CBS gave newsman Charles Kuralt a half-hour primetime spot to showcase the folksy vignettes he'd perfected for the CBS Evening News beginning in 1967.

On the Road with Charles Kuralt allowed Kuralt to present more in-depth pieces about the people and places he encountered during his treks along the nation's back roads in a motor home.

The primetime On the Road lasted just two months. Kuralt continued producing On the Road pieces for CBS News until October, 1980.

In 1984, Kuralt would host another On the Road-esque primetime show for CBS called The American Parade. Bill Moyers was his co-host, and correspondents included Bill Kurtis, Diane Sawyer, Maria Shriver and Art Buchwald. It was on the air five months.
