NEW YORK—Musician and educator Wynton Marsalis has been named as cultural correspondent for CBS News.

The network said Thursday that Marsalis will report on a range of cultural and educational developments on "CBS This Morning" and "CBS Sunday Morning." His first appearance is scheduled for Jan. 16, as the nation observes the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr.

Marsalis has been associated with CBS News for a number of years. He has appeared on "60 Minutes," and it's his trumpet fanfare that opens "Sunday Morning" each week.

He is a composer and has been the artistic director of jazz at New York City's Lincoln Center since 1987. He has won nine Grammy Awards.
