Peter Jennings: Book Party
Mr. Jennings' former ABC colleagues Ted Koppel, John Cochran, Kyle Gibson and their spouses hosted the party at the home of Kyle Gibson with PublicAffairs Books. Mr. Osnos, Mr. Cochran, Mr. Koppel, and Mrs. Jennings made remarks to the group.
A party was held to celebrate the publication of the book Peter Jennings: A Reporter’s Life, published by PublicAffairs. The book was co-edited by Lynn Sherr, a colleague at ABC News, freelance book editor Kate Darnton, and Peter Jenning’s widow Kayce Freed Jennings. The bulk of the interviews in this oral history were conducted in the days immediately following the anchorman’s death from lung cancer on August 7, 2005. Friends and fellow reporters retraced his career from his first jobs in Canadian radio to his coverage of major events as anchor of the ABC evening news.
