Dan Rather Reports was a weekly news television show hosted by former CBS news anchor Dan Rather and airing on AXS TV from 2006 until 2013.[1]

The show premiered on November 14, 2006, when Rather was 75 years old. As host, correspondent, and narrator,[2] Rather had been given full creative and editorial control over the new program.[3] Rather planned to focus the show on field correspondence news, investigative journalism, and politics.[4] The hour-long show is broadcast on Tuesdays at 8:00 p.m. ET (rebroadcast at 11:00).[2] Its longer format allows for more in-depth presentation of issues.[5]

Initially The New York Times commented that it "seems to favor Democrats who love America".[2]

In 2008, Dan Rather Reports was awarded a News and Documentary Emmy.[6] The show was also nominated for Emmy awards in 2007 and 2009.[7][8]
