Iconic Journalist & Former News Anchor for the CBS Evening News

REQUEST BOOKING INFORMATION

 Dan Rather Biography

Dan Irvin Rather Jr. is an American journalist and former national evening news anchor. Rather began his career in Texas, becoming a national name after his reporting saved thousands of lives during Hurricane Carla in September 1961. Rather spontaneously created the first radar weather report by overlaying a transparent map over a radar image of Hurricane Carla. In his first national broadcast, he helped initiate the successful evacuation of 350,000 people.

In 1981, Rather was promoted to news anchor for the CBS Evening News, a role he occupied for 24 years. Along with Peter Jennings at ABC News and Tom Brokaw at NBC News, he was one of the "Big Three" nightly news anchors in the U.S. from the 1980s through the early 2000s. He frequently contributed to CBS's weekly news magazine, 60 Minutes. Within a year of Brokaw's retirement and Jennings's death, Rather left the anchor desk in 2005 following a Killian documents controversy in which he presented unauthenticated documents in a news report on President George W. Bush's Vietnam War–era service in the National Guard. He continued to work with CBS until 2006.

On the cable channel AXS TV, Rather hosted "Dan Rather Reports", a 60 Minutes–style investigative news program, from 2006 to 2013. He also hosts several other projects for AXS TV, including "Dan Rather Presents", which provides in-depth reporting on broad topics such as mental health care or adoption, and "The Big Interview" with Dan Rather, in which he conducts long-form interviews with musicians and other entertainers. In January 2018, he began hosting an online newscast called "The News with Dan Rather" on The Young Turks' YouTube channel.
