Dan Rather has been tapped to cover the Republican and Democrat conventions on Andy Cohen's news opinion and entertainment channel on SiriusXM satellite radio.
Cohen, who also fronts the Bravo nightly series "Watch What Happens: Live," said on Monday that the veteran broadcaster will provide reports from both events on his "Radio Andy" channel.
"I'm amazed and awestruck that Dan has agreed to do this and can't wait to hear what he has to say," Cohen said.
Rather, 84, who anchored the "CBS Evening News," served as the network's White House correspondent and covered the Vietnam War and Space Shuttle Challenger disaster, said:
"I am grateful and honored to be working with Andy Cohen and the SiriusXM team at the conventions. My hope is to offer news, analysis and commentary that will be worthy of their audience."
