Dan Rather Still In The Mix
I have always loved Dan Rather. I even have one of his stories about radio broadcasting in my book Walking Up The Ramp. There is always a place for Rather in our home.
So the news this weekend is really great when it comes to this famed newsman.
Dan Rather’s brand new weekly SiriusXM program, Dan Rather’s America, will debut the day after Monday’s Presidential debate. Live from Rockefeller Center in New York. Rather, who will turn 85 Oct. 31, shows no signs of slowing down. The program will air on Radio Andy (Channel 102).
From Friday’s announcement:
“I’m pinching myself that Dan has agreed to lend his iconic voice to my channel,” said Andy Cohen. “Now more than ever, I’m hungry to hear his thoughts and reflections about what’s going on in the world.”
In July, Rather covered the DNC and RNC for Radio Andy. The one-hour weekly show will feature a mix of commentary, special guests and calls from listeners.
