The voice, heart, and soul of American journalism, Dan Rather is one of the most recognized and renowned reporters of our time.
Over the past 40 years, Rather has been a part of history’s defining moments. With distinction and a fierce dedication to hard news, he has chronicled the events that have shaped our world. Rather has reported from the front lines around the globe, including such places as Iraq, Afghanistan, Vietnam, Tiananmen Square, the Middle East, Bosnia, and Haiti. His legendary reporting skills and single-minded pursuit of the story have earned him universal respect among his peers and the public.
On the domestic front, Rather has covered nearly every major story, from the tragedy of 9/11 to President Clinton’s impeachment. He has reported on the Civil Rights Movement, Watergate, and every presidential campaign since 1952. He bings us the real story with grace, humanity, and substance.
The recipient of virtually every honor in broadcast journalism, including the 2012 Edward R. Murrow Award for Lifetime Achievement, numerous Emmy Awards, and a Peabody Award, Rather has reported and anchored shows such as 60 Minutes, CBS Evening News, and 48 Hours. His latest journalistic venture is the hard-edged news showDan Rather Reports, broadcasted on AXS TV, where he reports on major issues facing our nation today. From politics and the global economy to international affairs and the environment, he gives each story the time and commitment that it deserves. In May, 2012 his memoir, Rather Outspoken: My Life in the News, was published.
