Re: Farewell Peter Jennings 1938-2005

I work in the same business, and that was just SAD to hear. He was very good, one of the best. RIP Peter Jennings.

It's weird cause now all of the originals are gone... Peter Jennings just died, Tom Brokaw retired, and Dan Rather stepped down to do 60 Minutes and other stuff. Brian Williams replaced Tom Brokaw and Bob Schieffer replaced Dan Rather, So now who will replace Peter Jennings? I'm not sure who else is a good candidate at ABC to replace him, but Ted Koppel is retiring in December, so he's out. Hmm, we'll know eventually and soon it'll be talked about. I'm not that familiar with the other anchor's at ABC as I work at a CBS affiliate, so I don't follow ABC all the time.

i hope that his death shows ( not that anyone shouldnt know already) the outcome of smoking!!! and i hope that since people know his name, it will hit people and make then stop that nasty and deadly habit.

Re: Farewell Peter Jennings 1938-2005

Very sad. I was surprised to learn the guy was a High School Drop out. Didnt even finish High School Sophmore year. And yet, he made it.


hmmmm who are some other guys who didnt get an education but dropped out, and made money


Bill Gates? right.

Re: Farewell Peter Jennings 1938-2005

Yep, I grew up with the originals too - so - PJ was a big loss (when I do watch the news).

For the last two years or so, I really do not watch any news at all. No 11 PM local news, no CNN, no MSNBC for me.

Unless a major event occurs (i.e., London bombing), I stay away from it. All too depressing for my tastes.

Cancer does suck and is something I definitely do not want to fall victim too.
