Peter Jennings: 1938-2005

Peter Jennings passed away Sunday.

Jennings, the Canadian-born newsman who announced in April that he had lung cancer, died at his New York home, according ABC News President David Westin.

The anchor sprung the shocking news on viewers four months ago when he told America he'd begin treatment for lung cancer.

"I will continue to do the broadcast," he said, his voice husky, in a taped message that night. But although Jennings would occasionally come to the newsroom between chemotherapy treatments, he never again appeared on the air.

He was 67.
