Jane Powell, Tippi Hedren & Robert Wagner Replacing TCM Host Robert Osborne
Robert Osborne, 79, is taking a three-month leave of absence from Turner Classic Movies. TCM announced in a statement that Osborne will undergo minor surgery and then will go on vacation.
During that time, he'll be replaced by Seven Brides for Seven Brothers' Jane Powell, The Birds' Tippi Hedren, and Prince Valiant's Robert Wagner. TCM will also continue to air pre-recorded segments featuring Osborne.
A former actor and the author of the “official history” of the Academy Awards, Osborne has been TCM's host since 1994. In recent years, he has also acted as host on the Academy Awards' red carpet.
