The late Osborne was the face of Turner Classic Movies for over 20 years.

Turner Classic Movies will honor its late longtime host Robert Osborne with a 48-hour tribute celebrating his 23-year tenure with the network.

TCM said Tuesday that the tribute will run all day Saturday, March 18, and Sunday, March 19. Osborne, the longtime face of the network, died Monday at age 84.

The tribute will feature longform interviews conducted by Osborne, an interview of Osborne conducted by Alec Baldwin for the host's 20th anniversary and Osborne's very first movie intro, filmed for Turner Classic's first broadcast in 1994, for Gone With the Wind.

Some of Osborne's interviews include sit-downs with Debbie Reynolds, Liza Minnelli and Peter O'Toole.

On Monday, TCM recalled Osborne as "fundamental in shaping TCM into what it is today."
