Brokaw called him “the Prince” of the network news triumvirate that were Jennings, Brokaw, and Rather. The friendly voice that familiar me to America nightly as I watched the news with my host mom back in 1993. The face that countdown with me to 2000. The presence that comforted me through the day on 9/11.
Thank you, Mr. Jennings. The world of news won’t be the same without you.
