That Day in September -- The Week Ahead

Written by Scott LaMar, Smart Talk Host/Executive Producer | Sep 5, 2011 6:53 PM

Radio Smart Talk for Tuesday, September 6:

That Day in September is witf's multimedia approach to the programs and storytelling that will commemorate the 10th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.  Throughout the week, witf 89.5 news, Radio Smart Talk and Smart Talk-TV will look back at that infamous day when the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon outside Washington D.C. were targeted by hijacked commercial aircraft, and when United Airlines Flight 93 was commandeered by hijackers but crashed into a western Pennsylvania field after the passengers on board fought back against the hijackers.  You also will hear the stories of reflection in the 10 years since 9/11.

On Tuesday's Radio Smart Talk, witf Multimedia News Director Tim Lambert joins us to preview the programming for the week ahead.  Tim brings a unique perspective to the conversation -- his family owned a portion of the land where Flight 93 crashed.  Tim has worked closely with the families of Flight 93 and the National Park Service that is completing the first phase of a permanent memorial on the land he donated.

Also with us will be Mal Fuller, who was the head air traffic controller at Pittsburgh International Airport on September 11 -- ten years ago.

Finally, Skip Becker, the Founder of the Hershey Community Theatre, discusses "The Guys," a play produced by the theatre at the Hershey Volunteer Fire Department this week that pays tribute to the firefighters who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks.
