Saturday, September 11th at 3pm CT: Sacred Ground—A September 11th Special from NPR
On September 11, 2001, Tim Lambert was a young journalist at NPR Member Station WITF in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The day was a blur of news: the crash of hijacked airliners in New York City, Arlington, VA, and near Shanksville, PA. It turned out that the fourth plane crashed on land passed down to Tim from his grandfather. Thus began a 20 year journey. Now, two decades after that horrific day, WITF’s Tim Lambert and NPR’s Scott Detrow bring us this special report on the crash of United Flight 93, from the earliest days until now.
