> Update: 5:55pm: “The Rather story will not air tonight,” an informed source says…

TV Week’s Michele Greppi reports: Though CBS News still hasn’t commented on last week’s flurry of stories reporting that Dan Rather is being forced to leave the network at which he worked for some than 44 years, TelevisionWeek has learned that CBS Evening News is preparing a story bidding farewell to Mr. Rather on the flagship newscast he anchored for 24 years.

Veteran CBS News correspondent Anthony Mason is working on the story, for which Mr. Rather, 74, is expected to be interviewed, according to a source at another network, who said she was told it was scheduled for tonight’s Evening News.”
