  Peter Jennings - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
He had anchored ABC World News Tonight since 1978 and was the sole anchor from 1983 through April 2005.
Born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Jennings was the son of Charles Jennings, the first news anchor and head of the news department at the CBC.
The special was hosted by Charles Gibson, who ended it standing in front of Jennings' empty anchor chair, giving way to a trumpeter, playing the ABC News division's theme music in the manner of a military bugler playing Taps; he did not play the final phrase, leaving the piece unresolved.

 News Network
Both networks began broadcast news by focusing on events, matters of public concern such as political conventions, election results and presidential inaugurations, and from this earliest period, broadcast journalism was rooted in various forms of competition.
In this developmental period the growth of network television news was hindered by the decision of the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) to "freeze" new TV licenses between 1948 and 1952, until it could sort out channel allocations and decide on a standard for color TV.
The time gap between the occurrence of the news and the news broadcast was closing.

 AOL News - Veteran Anchor to Step Down Wednesday
NEW YORK (March 3) - Farewells aren't supposed to go this way, especially when you've been a household name for millions of Americans for 24 years.
You're supposed to go out riding high, as NBC Nightly News anchor Tom Brokaw did when he stepped down last fall, not with co-workers sniping publicly that they don't watch your broadcast because there's something odd about you or that the reason you've held the anchor chair so long is that you intimidate your bosses.
Yet for Dan Rather, who steps down from The CBS Evening News next Wednesday, that's the way it is, to paraphrase the trademark sign-off of his predecessor, Walter Cronkite.

 Rather to step down as CBS News anchor - TELEVISION - MSNBC.com
NEW YORK - Dan Rather, the hard-charging embodiment of CBS News who saw his reputation damaged by an ill-fated report on President Bush’s National Guard service, said Tuesday he will step down as “CBS Evening News” anchor in March after nearly a quarter-century in the job.
CBS News and Rather were undoubtedly weighing whether timing the announcement before or after the investigative panel’s release would be better, said Ken Auletta, media columnist for The New Yorker magazine.
In 1987, he walked off the evening news set in anger after CBS delayed the broadcast for a tennis match, leaving the network with dead air for six minutes.

 The Most Biased Name in News
Fox News Channel is committed to being fair and balanced in the coverage of the stories everybody is reporting--and to reporting stories you won't hear anywhere else.
Fox's news specials are equally slanted: Dangerous Places (3/25/01), a special about foreign policy hosted by Newt Gingrich; Heroes, an irregular series hosted by former Republican congressmember John Kasich; and The Real Reagan (11/25/99), a panel discussion on Ronald Reagan, hosted by Tony Snow, in which all six guests were Reagan friends and political aides.
On Fox News Sunday (3/25/01), the network's Sunday-morning equivalent of Meet the Press, interviews with Secretary of Energy Spencer Abraham and Sen. Joseph Lieberman were incongruously followed by a segment featuring a largely unknown reparations activist and David Horowitz, in a Crossfire-style debate about Horowitz's rejected ad.
