American news presenter Peter Jennings died on Sunday (07AUG05) at his New York home following a battle with lung cancer. He was 67.

The veteran journalist shot to fame in 1964, when he started fronting ABC's flagship WORLD NEWS TONIGHT programme.

He was born in Canada but was welcomed as a US citizen in 2003.

ABC News president DAVID WESTIN says, "Peter has been our colleague, our friend, and our leader in so many ways.

"None of us will be the same without him."

Fellow ABC newswoman Barbara Walters adds, "No one could ad-lib like Peter. Sometimes he drove me crazy because he knew so many details. He just died much too young."
