Cancer Claims ABC Newsman Jennings

Peter Jennings, longtime anchor of ABC's evening news program, died Sunday in New York after a battle with lung cancer. He was 67. Jennings dominated the nightly news ratings from the late 1980s to the mid-1990s. Before assuming the anchor chair, he was a well-traveled international correspondent.
