Peter Jennings by Kate Darnton

Book Description

For many Americans, Peter Jennings was the voice and face that gave shape and meaning to every day's news. In this oral biography, readers witness Jennings' extraordinary rise to the top of his profession, but they get to know him as a person, too. It brings together memories contributed by Peter's friends, family, competitors, colleagues, and interview subjects. They reveal facets of a man many of us felt we knew well--but only because he greeted us every weekday evening from our television sets. Peter Jennings was a celebrity, of course, but in these pages he is remembered as a loyal friend and a devoted family man. Throughout his life, Peter Jennings was driven by a passion to seek the truth and convey that truth accurately, simply, cleanly, and elegantly to his American audience. He was our voice.
