Dan Rather was happy to speak about leaders he had met, but he was modest about his own leadership wehn he spoke at Mississippi State University Tuesday night.

“I don’t consider myself a leader, and I don’t consider myself an expert on leadership,” Rather said.

Before even starting his years as anchor of the “CBS Evening News,” Rather had already interviewed such leaders as Martin Luther King, Jr., John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson. But not long after he became “CBS Evening News” anchor, he said, he realized he still had to learn humility if he wanted to be an effective leader.
