He began his network career at ABC News in April 1997, as a correspondent for NewsOne, ABC's affiliate news service. In 1998 Osunsami began filing reports for "World News Tonight with Peter Jennings," primarily covering the southeastern U.S. Among his many assignments, Osunsami reported from New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and then followed the rebuilding efforts along the Gulf Coast. He also covered the search for and capture of accused serial bomber Eric Robert Rudolph, the 2000 presidential election recount in Florida, the legal fight that surrounded six black teenagers known as the Jena 6 in 2007, the fall of South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford in 2009, the sex-coercion allegations against Mega-Church leader Eddie Long, the 2011 tornados that killed more 200 people in Alabama, and more than two dozen hurricanes over the last decade. He was a correspondent for the Emmy award winning broadcast of "ABC 2000: The Millennium," and has received multiple awards for his work from the National Association of Black Journalists and the Columbia School of Journalism. Prior to joining ABC News, Osunsami was a reporter in Seattle for the ABC affiliate KOMO-TV and a reporter and substitute anchor for the NBC affiliate, WOOD-TV in Grand Rapids, Michigan. For his work at WOOD-TV, he was recognized several times with awards from the Associated Press and the Michigan Association of Broadcasters.
