Jennings was part of a the three iconic news anchor of NBC’s Tom Brokaw and CBS’s Dan Rather. The death of Jennings comes a few months after he announced he had lung cancer and after Dan Rather step down from the CBS anchor seat.

Jennings had a 41-year career with ABC, having joined the network in 1964. He soon went head-to-head with the toughest competition in the business, anchoring the network’s prime-time news from 1965 to 1967 at a time when Walter Cronkite on CBS and the team of David Brinkley and Chet Huntley on NBC were dominant.
