Cross Talk Season 5 Extra: You Won‘t Hear this on the News - Episode 11: 9/11

September 10, 2021

From September 10, 2021.  On the eve of the 20th anniversary of the events of September 11th, 2001. Broadcasting, podcasting, newspapers and online sites are full of features, analysis, documentaries and special reports about 9/11 including the memories of people who reported the events.  Some of that is by or about people who were on tv that day.  But for millions of people, the story started on the radio on their way to work.  I was on my way to work on the radio...hearing the people already there at work on the radio starting to tell the story from the moment it started.  Some radio reporters got a call: get over the border...now...before it is closed; get to New York and start sending back news. Some of my recollections of that day, and how the story was covered on the radio.  You won't hear this on the news.
