Peter Jennings, who announced that he had lung cancer back in April, died Sunday. The Canadian-born anchor of ABC News was 67.

ABC News President David Westin said that “Peter has been our colleague, our friend, and our leader in so many ways. None of us will be the same without him.”

Jennings, who became a U.S. citizen in 2003, started anchoring the ABC News solo on September 5, 1983.
