After decades in the television news business, Dan Rather says he remains a journalist who seeks the truth.

Dan Rather Signs Off from Evening News

ENDED: His voice slightly hoarse, Dan Rather, 73, was all business for the first 20 minutes of Wednesday's broadcast – his final appearance after 24 years – on CBS Evening News. Then he recalled what he called the most important story of his career – the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. He opened the news that evening by saying, "You will remember this day as long as you live." He thanked viewers at the end of Wednesday's newscast, then mentioned Sept. 11 survivors, tsunami survivors, the American military, the oppressed, the sick and fellow journalists in dangerous places. "And, to each of you," he said, "courage." Bob Schieffer, Rather's temporary replacement, will sit at the anchor desk as of Thursday. CBS expects to name a permanent anchor team to succeed Rather in the coming months.
