On Tuesday, November 1, 2016, veteran journalist Dan Rather joined Friends of the LBJ Library members to speak about his remarkable career spanning six decades in print, radio, and television news. The program was moderated by LBJ Library Director Mark Updegrove.

Rather, a native Texan, has covered almost every major news event since the 1960s, including President John F. Kennedy’s assassination, the U.S. civil rights movement, the Vietnam War, the Watergate scandal, the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the 9/11 terrorist attacks. He was anchor and managing editor of CBS Evening News for 24 years. He now serves as president and CEO of News and Guts, an independent production company.

The evening was co-hosted by the Dolph Briscoe Center for American History at the University of Texas at Austin.
