Oh how the mighty have fallen. Dan Rather who famously heckled President Nixon and used forged documents trying to mar the character of President G.W. Bush will be returning to the anchor desk, if only momentarily.
Legendary CBS newsman Dan Rather will anchor KCTV5 News at 5 p.m. Wednesday.
Rather, who anchored the CBS Evening News for 24 years, will also appear in an extended interview on KCTV5 News at 4 p.m. He will be in Kansas City on Wednesday to discuss the events and personalities he has covered in his life.
The free event held at the Central Library in downtown Kansas City, MO, is aimed to promote his new memoir, "Rather Outspoken: My Life in the News." Rather will hold a public conversation with library director Crosby Kemper III at 6:30 p.m.
