9/11 According To Sen. Kerry, Rep. Lynch, Fmr. WBZ News Dir. Peter Brown
Today, we continue our special coverage of the 10th anniversary of 9/11 with some personal reflections on that day — and the decade since.
Senator John Kerry
On the morning of September 11th 2001, like most Americans, Senator John Kerry was glued to the TV. He was watching the unfolding coverage of the terror attacks on the World Trade Center when, all of the sudden, out the window he saw the cloud of an explosion at the Pentagon. He joins us with the story of what came next.
Congressman Stephen Lynch
Massachusetts’ 9th district Congressman Stephen Lynch was in the middle of an election day race when he learned the news about the attacks.
Former WBZ-TV News Director Peter Brown takes us inside the newsroom on that fateful day, and remembers how both local and national media responded.
