It was only a matter of minutes before the first "Ratherism" was uttered.

Dan Rather, the 75-year-old former CBS anchorman, was describing the start-up news operation that he has built at Mark Cuban's HDNet channel since his stormy departure five months ago from the network he had called home for 44 years.

Dan Rather Reports will premiere at 8 tonight on the HDNet channel. More information on the channel can be found at www.hd.net.
