9/11 anniversary special to air Sept. 11 at 11 a.m. and 11 p.m.
WGN Radio remembers a tragic, pivotal day in American history with a one-hour special, “That Day: Ten Years After”, set to air Sunday, September 11 at 11 a.m. and 11 p.m.
Join host John Williams for reflections on September 11, 2001, with the WGN Radio broadcasters who were on air that morning: business and agriculture reporter Orion Samuelson, sports director Dave Eanet, former WGN Radio news director Tom Petersen and former WGN Radio morning show host Spike O’Dell. Plus, WGN Radio’s Greg Jarrett talks one on one with his former colleague, Ann Compton from ABC News, the only reporter to fly with President George W. Bush that tension filled morning aboard Air Force One. With sound clips, audio flashbacks and tributes, WGN Radio hopes to honor the day all Americans came together as one to respond to the shock and sadness with the courage and determination that 9/11 evoked in us.
In addition to the broadcasts on 720-AM, the special can also be heard online at wgnradio.com/listen and on mobile devices, including the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, BlackBerry and Droid.
