Dan Rather, Busy as Ever at 83: ‘I’d Rather Wear Out Than Rust Out’

By Mark Joyella 

Former CBS Evening News anchor Dan Rather has signed on with Mashable, where he wrote a piece earlier this week on the 2016 campaign.

The Associated Press’ David Bauder reports Rather, 83, will provide reporting and analysis for Mashable in addition to his interview series for AXS-TV:

“I love to work,” Rather said. “I have my flaws and I’ve made a lot of mistakes, but I’ve always loved covering news and I have a passion for covering news. I couldn’t see myself not doing it as long as I have my health.”


“I’d much rather wear out than rust out,” he said.
