Peter Jennings Dies at 67

NEW YORK - Peter Jennings, the suave, Canadian-born broadcaster who delivered the news to Americans each night in five separate decades, died Sunday. He was 67. Jennings, who announced in April that he had lung cancer, died at his New York home, ABC News President David Westin said late Sunday.
I had the opportunity to meet Mr. Jennings several years ago. From my encounter with him, I got the impression that he was, to put it simply, a nice guy.
