Dan Rather’s career has taken some interesting turns since leaving CBS, with roles formal and informal that have included production company creator and popular Facebook essayist.
There was also a short stint as SiriusXM radio host during the conventions, which has now turned into a permanent weekly gig.
Called Dan Rather’s America, the one-hour show premieres Tuesday at 10 a.m. ET on SiriusXM’s Radio Andy channel 102. It will be a mix of commentary, analysis and discussion with guests along with a call-in component.
“I’m pinching myself that Dan has agreed to lend his iconic voice to my channel,” said Radio Andy channel creator Andy Cohen in a statement. “Now more than ever, I’m hungry to hear his thoughts and reflections about what’s going on in the world.”
Judging by the popularity of his Facebook posts, so are a lot of other people.
