Peter Jennings died Sunday night..
news: Peter Jennings, the long time anchor and senior editor of ABC News - and a Canadian - died this evening from complications from the lung cancer he announced in April. Damn.

His ABC World News Tonight broadcast I watched on the ABC affiliate WKBW in Buffalo was the news I watched in the mid 80s when I lived in Toronto. When I wanted to know what was going on at 630pm I turned to ABC.

CNN and CNN Headline news became my 'anytime' fix later on, and then the various internet sources I check regularly, but he was the voice of the news to me for a long period of time. And when I wanted to compare and cross reference, I would flip between his broadcast and those or Rather, and Brokaw and CNN's - and of course the CBC's The National - though it was not on in the same time slot.

He was a great reporter ( in the field in his Tilly safari looking gear) and anchor who said he was fascinated by everything and didn't want to miss anything. He didn't miss much. But by those of us who watch the news, he will be missed now.

The obit from CNN is here, and ABC's is here.

Carpe Diem

That is so sad! He will be greatly missed! I loved his voice, and he seemed so understanding and sympathitic when covering a story! Blessings and sympathy to his family!
