Re: ABC anchor Peter Jennings has passed away
I used to work for an ABC affiliate and it was there that I developed the habit of watching ABC World News Tonight. Watching the stories about him on GMA and "Today" this morning really confirmed the perception that I've held for a long time. Peter Jennings was the linchpin that held it all together. He put together an amazing career for a high school dropout.
I appreciate that in what turned out to be his final broadcast, he held himself up as an example of why kids shouldn't smoke and asked that parents use that occasion to remind their kids not to start.
BTW, Matt Drudge said on his radio show last night that Diane Sawyer has the inside track on the anchor desk at ABC.
