Dan Rather will be stepping down as anchor on the CBS evening news in Marck, 2005. He will continue on 60 minutes and other assignments according to CBS. I wonder who will replace him?

I think this is the real 'beginning of the end' for "Network News". It's definitely not a "profit center" for the Big 3 broadcasters & will soon go the way of the buggy whip. Who really needs someone (and a high-priced someone at that) to read the news to them?

Very few Americans use broadcast news as their primary source of news. There are so many resources available to the consumer, network news has become an anachronism. Hell, even newspapers aren't as influential as they once were. Dedicated cable news channels, the internet, news magazines, and even "The Daily Show" are meeting the needs of the average "News" consumer.
