SiriusXM announced today that legendary news anchor Dan Rather will join Radio Andy channel 102. The veteran journalist will debut his weekly program Dan Rather’s America on Tuesday, September 27 at 10:00 a.m. ET. The one-hour show will broadcast from SiriusXM’s New York headquarters in Rockefeller Center.
Hot off his successful limited run show in July reporting for Radio Andy at the Republican National Convention and Democratic National Convention, the veteran journalist will return to SiriusXM for an exclusive new weekly show. Dan Rather’s America will debut the morning after the first presidential debate, and will feature the news icon’s fresh commentary and analysis of one of the most anticipated political events in recent American history. On his weekly program Rather will also talk with a regular rotation of top newsmakers about the political landscape and the big news stories of the day, and will also invite SiriusXM subscribers to call in and voice their opinions.
