Peter Jennings: July 29, 1938 – August 7, 2005

Squeezed August 7, 2005

Goodbye, Peter. We’ll miss you.

My friend is a technical director at KITV News, so I’m sure he feels a sort of kinship with the anchorman that precedes his 6:00 newscast. And maybe the kinship I feel was the fact that we share a birthday.

What I remember about Peter Jennings is his demeanor. His warm Canadian accent projecting a feeling of calm, cool, collected.

I remember watching his coverage of the transition between December 31, 1999 and January 1, 2000. I can’t believe that he stayed up over 25 hours straight to cover New Year’s in all 24 time zones. Such was his dedication to his work.

He will certainly be missed.
