WCCO Radio Plans 4-Hour Special Report On 9/11
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Tune into News Radio 830 WCCO on Sunday for a four-hour special report, “Minnesota Remembers 9/11.”
Sunday marks the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C.
Nearly 3,000 people were killed when 19 hijackers commandeered four separate airplanes and slammed them into their targets, excepting United Airlines flight 93, which crashed in Pennsylvania after the passengers fought back.
WCCO Radio will present a number of interviews and reports on Sunday to mark the event. The programming runs from noon until 4 p.m.
During the first hour, Dave Lee looks back with:
– Paul Brady, a retired New York Port Authority Policeman who was involved in the WTC Bombing in 1993. His disaster training leading up to 9/11 saved many lives that day.
– Filmmaker Gedeon Naudet who happened to be in a Manhattan Fire Department filming a documentary on September 11th.
– Adam Carter also catches up with former WCCO personalities Jeff McKinney and Al Malmberg as they share what it was like being on the air that day.
In the second hour, the WCCO newsroom shares stories of 9/11, how it affected Minnesotans and how it still affects us today.
The third hour will bring the CBS News weekend roundup, “9/11, America Remembers,” taking a look back at the events of that day and how America has changed.
The fourth hour will bring “9/11: Rising Above.” Tom Brokaw joins the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and the Orchestra at Temple Square for a special music and the spoken word ceremony.
