Remembering Peter: Battle With Cancer Was “An Inspiration For Millions”

Walt Disney Company CEO Michael Eisner and president/COO Robert Iger released this statement today:

“We have lost a great colleague and friend, Peter Jennings. For four decades, Peter set a standard of fairness, intelligence, insightfulness and courage. This last trait was especially evident during these last months. For once, Peter himself became the story as his courageous battle with cancer served as an inspiration for millions of people across America.”

The rest of the statement is after the jump…


“Peter was one of those unique individuals who was larger than life but never lost the common touch. He possessed an innate understanding of the human condition, which is why his broadcasts had such an air of authenticity. He understood that the world was a complex place and had the extraordinary ability to communicate that complexity to millions of viewers day after day.”

“If only Peter were here now. With his succinct eloquence, he could find the words to describe the depth of our sorrow and loss.”

“We know you will join us in expressing our heartfelt sympathies to Peter’s wife, Kayce, and his family.”
