Mo Rocca was named a correspondent for "CBS Sunday Morning" in December 2011.

Known for his satirical news reports and commentary, Rocca has been serving as a contributor for the broadcast since 2006, and in his new capacity will continue reporting for "Sunday Morning," as well as other CBS News broadcasts

"His title is Correspondent, but we see Mo, as we see all our "Sunday Morning" contributors, as a 'columnist,' bringing his own unique -- and it is unique -- perspective to everything he does," commented "Sunday Morning" Executive Producer Rand Morrison.

Rocca is a humorist, actor and Emmy award-winning writer. He is a panelist on NPR's weekly hit quiz show, "Wait, Wait... Don't Tell Me!," and the host of "Food(ography)" on the Cooking Channel. He spent four seasons as a correspondent on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," and four seasons as a correspondent on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno."

Recent "Sunday Morning" segments by Rocca include a report on the history of Prohibition, an interview with the actress Michelle Williams, and a tribute to the state of New Jersey.
