"When [the anchor job] didn't work, Peter realized, 'I need to go out and learn my craft. I haven't failed so much as I'm just too inexperienced.' And so he, without a formal education, decided -- and it's an extraordinary thing for someone to think through -- decided, 'I will go out and get an education about the world on ABC's dime.'" - Charles Gibson, anchor, "World News with Charles Gibson"

Red Square, Moscow, mid-1960s. (ABC Archives)
