ABC sets smoking series

Net fetes Jennings with special report

ABC’s “World News Tonight” will honor the late Peter Jennings with a monthlong reporting project on the dangers of smoking.

The series, parts of which will air throughout November, will focus on the public health issue tobacco presents and follow several people as they try to quit smoking.

ABC News producers have assigned reporters to follow four people through the highs and lows of trying to quit throughout the month. Reporters will pursue questions about the tobacco industry’s recent record in marketing to children and funding anti-smoking programs.

It will include a video blog with testimonials. “It’s an effort to show the process and the real struggle of trying to quit smoking in a different way,” Banner said.

Project is in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Cancer Institute and the North American Quitline Consortium.
