Dan Rather is moving his AXS TV show “Dan Rather Reports” a few blocks uptown.

The veteran journalist will take up a 4,479-square-foot spot on the 18th floor of 1180 Avenue of the Americas, at West 46th Street, the New York Post reported. Owned by a partnership with Chinese company HNA, the building also counts the Scripps Food Network among its tenants.

John Moran of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank represented Rather in the deal, while Garett Varricchio, Bret Varricchio and James Tamborlane of MHP Realty Services represented the building’s owners. Asking rents for remaining spaces in the building range from the high $50s to $65 per square foot.

Rather will relocate from his current space at 130 West 42nd Street on April 1, according to the Post. [NYP, 1st item]Julie Strickland
