    Reporting on traumatic events like 9/11

    Journalists are professional eyewitnesses to traumatic events, and that is especially true of 9/11.

    KSHB 41 News anchor Cynthia Newsome was getting ready for work at the station and watching the news when she heard about the attacks. She reported on how 9/11 impacted Kansas Citians 20 years ago. 

    In the final episode of KSHB 41 News’ five-part podcast mini-series about the 20th anniversary of 9/11, digital producers Casey Murray and Katharine Finnerty will explore how the field of journalism has changed, and listeners will hear from Newsome about her experience reporting on 9/11.

    What 9/11 changed and how Kansas City remembers

    What 9/11 changed and how Kansas City remembers

    To this day, airport security is one of the most recognizable, direct changes made in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. 

    The federal government established the Transportation Security Administration, or TSA, which is now responsible for keeping airports safe. 

    In the fourth episode of KSHB 41 News’ five-part podcast mini-series on the 20th anniversary of 9/11, digital producers Casey Murray and Katharine Finnerty will explore how the Kansas City International Airport was impacted by 9/11, and why people in the metro continue to keep the memory of the attacks alive.

    The impact of 9/11 on the Islamic community, educators

    The impact of 9/11 on the Islamic community, educators

    After 9/11, the country unified to heal from the tragedy, but some were not included in that unity. Some Muslim and Middle-Eastern people living in the U.S. experienced an increased amount of hate crimes and violence against them after 9/11. 

    Educators are doing what they can to teach their students why such prejudices are wrong, but it’s a challenge when those students weren’t even born when 9/11 happened.

    In the third episode of KSHB 41 News’ five-part podcast mini-series about the 20th anniversary of 9/11, digital producers Casey Murray and Katharine Finnerty will hear from Dr. Laeeq Azmat, Platte County High School teacher Zach Keith and more about 9/11’s impact on the Islamic community, as well as how educators are teaching 9/11 to students who didn’t experience the life-changing event firsthand.

    Sept. 11, the war and its impact on service members

    Sept. 11, the war and its impact on service members

    The legacy of the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, has grown increasingly complicated following a 20-year war in Afghanistan. That’s taking its toll on service members. 

    The memory of the war and its withdrawal can be a painful source of conflict for veterans. The attacks were an incentive for many to join the military, but studies show PTSD is worse in veterans now than it’s ever been. 

    In the second episode of KSHB 41 News’ five part podcast mini-series about the 20th anniversary of 9/11, digital producers Casey Murray and Katharine Finnerty will explore how service people in Kansas City were impacted by the attacks, and how they are impacted now as the U.S. ends its longest war.

Thankful

I appreciate what you guys are doing with this podcast. I went to school with Kara and her parents had a lake cabin across the street from my grandparents. I work nights so this is the best way for me to get updates on what’s going on. Thank you! I think how you guys have respected the family’s of both girls is very horrible!

Thank you!

I really appreciate these daily trial updates. I’ve been following this case since Kara first went missing. It’s been a long hard road and so much worse worse for both girls families. I can’t imagine having to relive this in such minute detail. Justice will punish the guilty. We all know who that is. I’m just waiting for the end and hope it ends as it should when this p.o.s. rots in prison.
