    Dan Rather to Leave 'CBS Evening News'Longtime Anchor Plans to Step Down in March

    Nov. 23, 2004 — Dan Rather announced today he will step down as anchor and managing editor of the "CBS Evening News" on March 9, 2005 — 24 years to the day after his first broadcast as the network's anchor.


    Rather will stay with CBS News, working full time as a correspondent for both editions of "60 Minutes," and taking on other assignments as well.

    "I have been lucky and blessed over these years to have what is, to me, the best job in the world and to have it at CBS News," Rather said. "Along the way, I've had the honor of working with some of the most talented, dedicated professionals in the world, and I'm appreciative of the opportunity to continue doing so in the years ahead."

    He and the network began discussing his future during the summer, he said, adding that he looks forward to getting back to working as an investigative reporter full time.

    "Dan's 24 years at the 'CBS Evening News' is the longest run of any evening news anchor in history and is a singular achievement in broadcast journalism," Leslie Moonves, CBS chairman and co-president and co-chief operating officer of CBS parent Viacom said in a statement. "He has been an eyewitness to the most important events for more than 40 years and played a crucial role in keeping the American public informed about those events and their larger significance. We congratulate him on all he has accomplished and look forward to the future."
