Those who hear Dan Rather speak often say that he is one of the most extraordinary communicators of our time. With more than 60 years spent chronicling our world and nation, few can match the authority, experience, and perspective that the famed newsman brings to almost any subject. From politics, the media, current events, and our country’s most pressing issues— to inspiring words of wisdom on leadership, education, social justice, civic involvement and the importance of philanthropy, Dan Rather speaks from the heart and treats audiences to a memorable encounter with a living legend.
With a career that began in radio and is currently shaping news coverage in social media and beyond, Dan Rather has earned his place as one of the world’s most influential and respected journalists. During 44 years at CBS, including 24 years as anchor of the CBS Evening News, he interviewed every president since Eisenhower and personally covered history-making events from the Kennedy Assassination through Viet Nam, Watergate, Tiananmen Square, the fall of the Berlin Wall, 9/11, and the Iraq Invasion. During this time, Rather earned a reputation as “the hardest working man in broadcast journalism” for simultaneously heading up the CBS Evening News, 48 Hours and 60 Minutes. He is the recipient of virtually every honor in broadcast journalism, including numerous Emmy Awards, several Peabody Awards and the 2012 Edward R. Murrow Lifetime Achievement Award. Currently president and CEO of News and Guts, an independent multimedia production company, Rather remains an integral part of our national conversation through television appearances, innovative reports on Facebook Live, a much-followed Twitter feed and contributions to Mashable. In January of 2018, he premiered The News with Dan Rather on the Young Turks Network. The weekly show focuses on original reporting and stories that Rather feels are not receiving the attention they deserve in mainstream media.
Rather’s best-selling book of original essays, What Unites Us: Reflections on Patriotism takes on the toxic political atmosphere and polarized opinions of our times with a hopeful reminder of the core ideals that all Americans share. Praised as a “tonic for our times” by USA Today, the book examines the principles that the U.S. was founded upon, the freedoms that define us, the values that have transformed us, and the traits that have sustained us. It also incorporates Rather’s decades of experience as a living witness to history, covering the biggest events and news stories of our times.
Known for humor, folksy “Ratherisms” captivating stories, and inspiring wisdom, Dan Rather’s keynotes put you in the presence of a remarkable witness to history and our times — staying with audiences long after the final applause.
