‘ABC World News’ Honors Peter Jennings

Saturday marked five years since “ABC World News” anchor Peter Jennings passed away from lung cancer.

The network remembered the star journalist with a package looking at that day and his career, as well as providing some updated statistics on smoking and lung cancer. As David Muir said on the night’s broadcast:

“Always the reporter, he would likely want us to ask, has anything changed? And so tonight, new numbers that even Peter would welcome.”

Muir ends the report with a letter from a viewer, who says they had not touched a cigarette since Jennings’ death.
