Emmys: Jennings Receives 2 For Iraq

By Brian 

Peter Jennings is still winning awards. The Hollywood Reporter sums up last night’s Emmy Awards:

“Jennings, the longtime ABC News anchor who died in August 2005, and ABC received two awards for ‘Where Things Stand,’ the network’s weeklong report on the war in Iraq from early 2005, including outstanding continuing coverage and best story in a newscast.

Jennings’ executive producer, Jon Banner, accepted both awards, saying the reports were ‘a real tour de force for Peter’ even though Jennings was only 71 days from disclosing that he had lung cancer.”
