Remembering 9-11

Posted at 10:07 AM on September 11, 2006 by Bill Wareham

As you might expect, we've got lots of programming today related to the fifth anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

Right now, Kerri Miller is talking about security issues with Irwin Redlener, author of Americans At Risk: Why We Are Not Prepared for Megadisasters and What We Can Do Now on Midmorning.

Reflections on 9/11 will continue on Midday. Gary Eichten's guest at 11 a.m. is Michael Hurley, a former staffer on the 9/11 Commission. At noon, 9/11 chair Thomas Kean and vice-chair Lee Hamilton speak live at the National Press Club.

On Morning Edition, Mark Zdechlik took a look at post-9/11 enlistment trends, a story you can find here.

On All Things Considered, we'll of course have NPR's coverage of events across the nation. Locally, we'll recap today's ceremony's at the state Capitol and take a look at how commerce has been affected by the attacks.

At 8 p.m. we'll provide live coverage of President Bush's address from the White House.

Much of this coverage is collected online here, including material that's aired the last few days, such as Ted Koppel's town hall meeting last night, The Price of Security.
