We're taking bets that he knew all aboot the news...

Peter Jennings of ABC World News Tonight passed away at the age of 67 from lung cancer. He was the last of the big three news anchors who all started in the early 80's. I will always remember him for his anchoring of the ABC Y2K celebration and his calm, cool demeanor during 9/11. Although he was picked on for being Canadian he received his American citzenship in 2003. It seems like a great era of television news has gone. Never to be seen again.

1938 - 2005

This is indeed a sad day. Peter Jennings was my favorite of the 80's and 90's "Big Three" newscasters.

Rest in peace, Peter. You did well.
