Jennings: Comments From “Competitors”

By Brian 

Brian Williams, “NBC Nightly News” anchor and managing editor:

“Peter is a friend and the best of competitors. It will take more than this to scare the man I know. Our industry will not be the same until he has permanently returned to his broadcast. He will tackle this as he has every challenging assignment during his life and career: by facing it head-on. He and his family are in my thoughts and prayers.”

Tom Brokaw, former “NBC Nightly News” anchor and managing editor:

“Peter is an old friend. I’m heartbroken, but he’s also a tough guy. I’m counting on him getting through this very difficult passage. Meredith and I are in touch with Peter and Kayce. They have all of our support and prayers.”
