Dan Rather Memoir Coming in 2012

Our sister blog GalleyCat reports that former “CBS Evening News” anchor Dan Rather has signed a deal with Grand Central Publishing to write a memoir.

The book will cover major historical events ranging from the Watergate scandal to the Iraq War, and it will included very “personal and candid” section about leaving CBS News in a storm of controversy.

Rather claimed he was forced out of CBS News following a report about then-President George W. Bush‘s military record in the Texas Air National Guard. He has since sued the company, with the case progressing through the court system.
