Saturday September 11e at 3 p.m. HC: Sacred Ground — An NPR 9/11 Special

On September 11, 2001, Tim Lambert was a young reporter at the NPR WITF member station in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. It was a blurry day: the hijacked airliner crashed in New York City, Arlington, Virginia, and near Shanksville, Pennsylvania. It turned out that the fourth plane crashed into earth passed on to Tim by his grandfather. So began a 20-year journey. Today, two decades after that horrific day, WITF’s Tim Lambert and NPR’s Scott Detrow bring us this special report on the United Flight 93 crash, from the early days until now.
