Dan Rather Will Cover Political Conventions for Andy Cohen, SiriusXM

Alongside former Newsweek editor Jonathan Alter.

Smart move. As part of Andy Cohen’s plans to broadcast live from the Republican and Democratic National Conventions, set respectively for Cleveland and Philadelphia, the Radio Andy maestro has recruited a former colleague. From today’s announcement:

“Having spent 10 years at CBS News, it’s a full-circle moment for me having Dan Rather lend his iconic voice to the Radio Andy stable at such a turning point in American politics,” said Cohen. “I’m amazed and awestruck that Dan has agreed to do this and can’t wait to hear what he has to say. And our listeners can count on [former Newsweek editor] Jonathan Alter too, for his wise and insightful analysis during this year’s election.”

Rather will file reports on the Tuesdays and Thursdays of both conventions. Radio Andy can be tuned in via SiriusXM Channel 102.
