Dan Rather Says NFL Team Should Keep Its Name

Author:

Legendary Journalist Dan Rather told DC’s 50 “NewsPlus with Mark Segraves” that the name of the Washington ‘Redskins’ should not be changed.

This is the first time that Rather has spoken about the team’s name. The 82-year-old, is the managing editor of Dan Rather Reports and was the anchor of the CBS Evening News for 24 years, from March 9, 1981, to March 9, 2005.

Rather did say, however, that he thinks the name will eventually be changed.
