The memorial service for Peter Jennings concluded around 1pm at Carnegie Hall, ten blocks from the former World News Tonight anchor’s newsroom in Manhattan. Outside, boldface names lined up single-file to enter the hall, as gawkers shouted asides like “look, there’s Andy Rooney!” A veritable who’s who of television news filled the rows by 11am.
Once inside, attendees were ushered to their reserved seats. I was surprised by the number of empty seats in the balcony, but the hall was still crowded with staffers from ABC and other news organizations. Inside, the audience was quiet, with nary a BlackBerry in sight. The musical interludes between memories helped the audience to reflect. ABCNews.com has posted a recap of the service. Scroll down for highlights of the event, along with the complete program.
> “The service was being fed to ABC bureaus in D.C. and around the world for collegueas who had to remain at their posts,” Broadcasting & Cable notes.
