Journalists run into places others run away from. This was perhaps never more true than on September 11th, 2001. In “Reporting on 9/11,” we’ll hear the emotional, true stories of men and women who brought us the news from the World Trade Center, Pentagon and Shanksville, Pennsylvania and learn how that day changed the course of their lives.
