Professional, classy, and traditional was what you got from Peter Jennings.
15 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

"ABC News" was always highly informative in the evening with the now late and great Peter Jennings. The network was always on top of things in events, though from time to time the network would focus much on international and foreign affair issues. The reporting and interviewing was always top notch from people like Charles Gibson, John Stossel, and Elizabeth Vargas, and the legendary Barbara Walters and Hugh Downs were unbeatable. Yet the most traditional and best was Peter Jennings it was sad he passed so young, Peter always told the news in a traditional manner with such a smooth and calm voice and he was always a hard working newsman and anchor. And ABC is probably the most conservative of the big three certainly more to the right than NBC or CBS.
