    Yep, he was a good news man and news anchor for ABC... too bad. He was only 67. Damn lung cancer. :(

    yea, i try and watch nightly news almost every night and last week wondered what happened to him, because i thought he was going to be in when he felt good, but he had not been around in a long time. He was a good anchor, now i think all the ones I grew up on are gone.
    EDIT: i hope this makes people see that smoking is bad when more of the famous war babies start to fall off from it.

    Wow, this is a shock .. He was a good news anchor, even though he spoke out a lot about American polocy. And, got himself into trouble a couple of times. RIP ..

    This is news to me as of reading this thread :|. Didn't know he had lung cancer. He was actually the only anchor I liked.

    RIP

    Since his last broadcast telling the public he had cancer he had never come back on the air... I guess him and his family new it was coming.. Very sad indeed
