Charles Kuralt (September 10, 1934 – July 4, 1997) was an award-winning American journalist. He was most widely known for his long career with CBS, first for his "On the Road" segments on The CBS Evening News with Walter Cronkite, and later as the first anchor of CBS News Sunday Morning, a position he held for fifteen years.

Kuralt's "On the Road" segments were recognized twice with personal Peabody Awards. The first, awarded in 1968, cited those segments as heartwarming and "nostalgic vignettes"; in 1975, the award was for his work as a U.S. "bicentennial historian"; his work "capture the individuality of the people, the dynamic growth inherent in the area, and ...the rich heritage of this great nation." He shared in a third Peabody awarded to CBS News Sunday Morning.

Born in Wilmington, North Carolina, as a boy Kuralt won a children's sports writing contest for a local newspaper by writing about a dog that got loose on the field during a baseball game. He later attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where he became editor of The Daily Tar Heel and was a Brother of St Anthony Hall (Delta Psi Fraternity). He worked as a reporter for the Charlotte News in his home state, where he wrote "Charles Kuralt's People," a column that won him an Ernie Pyle Award.
