“Good evening. I’m Dan Rather. You’re unsure of what happened today and I’ve got the evening news, so we should get along just fine.”

“Good evening. I’m Dan Rather. Now when I say ‘evening’ I want you all to say ‘news.’ You think you all can do that for me? Ready? Eve-ning …”

“Good evening. I’m Dan Rather, and I’ve got so much news in me I can taste it.”

“Good evening. I’m Dan Rather. And I want to do something new for you right now. It’s called Evening News. And it goes a little something like this.”

“Good evening. I’m Dan Rather, and heaven must be missing an angel ‘cause you’re here with me right now.”
