This is the first of a two part Q&A with former CBS correspondent Roger Mudd. The interview is based on his book "The Place To Be: Washington, CBS, and the Glory Days of Television News." Mudd tells the story of his years at CBS, which began May 31, 1961 and concluded on November 6, 1980. He tells the story of Dan Rather being chosen as Walter Cronkite's successor to anchor the CBS Evening News, a position that Mudd thought was going to be his. He also talks about his relations with Rather then and now.
