NEW YORK – Dan Rather is in the mood for “Summing Up.”
The former CBS anchor and reporter has a deal with Grand Central Publishing for a memoir tentatively scheduled to come out in 2012.
Grand Central announced Tuesday that “Summing Up” covers his long career in journalism.
His experience spans the John F. Kennedy assassination and Watergate to the Iraq War and his final years at CBS. That’s when a disputed story about President George W. Bush’s military service led to Rather’s departure in 2006.
The 79-year-old Rather has also written a memoir about his childhood, “I Remember: Growing Up in Texas.” It was published in 1991.
